You'd think with all the shiny new Android phones everyone got for Christmas, most people would be running some form of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, or even 4.1 Jelly Bean if they were lucky. You'd be wrong, though. Over 47 per cent of the devices that accessed the Google Play store in the last 14 days were running some version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Gross.


You may remember the name Huawei not just from national newspaper headlines, but also from cheap smartphones like the sub-par, sub-$200 Ideos X1. Now the company is out to impress with beefier hardware, thinner handsets designs and nifty interfaces that show that Huawei is finally growing up.


It's no secret that we're fans of the HTC One X and One XL. They're great handsets that handle the top end of the smartphone market really well. If you're after something in the same family that's lighter on the pocket, the HTC One V is for you.


With the right skills, you can port Jelly Bean's Google Now over to your Ice Cream Sandwich Android device. If you want to try the oh-so-creepy predictive assistant, but you're not yet running a build 4.1 operating system, you can do so following a set of instructions posted on the XDA Developers forums.


On paper, the Kogan Agora tablet looks great. $179 gets you a 10-inch tablet complete with an IPS screen, Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich powered by a 1Ghz ARM processor with 1GB of RAM and front- and rear-facing cameras. What could go wrong?
