What is Ice Cream Sandwich??

Sticking with the “dessert” naming structure… Google’s latest Android software, 4.0, is called Ice Cream Sandwich.
(We got a sneak peak at ICS last year.)

Currently, RnD has an ICS phone in lab… We would love to show you pictures and videos, but, the manufacturers would string us up by our toenails….

What we can do… is let you know some of our favorite features of the 4.0 ICS phones.


The phone we are testing now does have a manufacturers “layer” or UI on top of it… And, in some cases, these layers slow down performance on their device.  Not in this case, 4.0 is very smooth… and it makes more sense than previous versions.  The buttons on the bottom have been trimmed to 3.  Back, Home, and Recent Apps.

The Recent Apps list makes multitasking simple.

Wait, where’s the menu key?

In some cases, holding down the “recent apps”  button in an application will launch the menu.  Otherwise, it’s located in the top right hand corner.


You’ll find that now in the notifications bar on the top.


With Illinois Valley Cellular, you won’t need to worry about data limitations or caps.  But, if you want to see how much data you’re usings, texts your’re sending and recieving… Check this out.

Data usage controls let you monitor total usage by network type and application and then set limits if needed.
