Vodafone: Android 4.0.4 update for the Sony Xperia Ray is now available

As we reported last week, the Sony Xperia Ray would be getting Android 4.0.4 “Ice Cream Sandwich” in the near future, and that near future is now. Vodafone have just announced the availability of the update over on their blog this afternoon. To get started with the update, you’ll need to download Sony’s PC Companion software (link) and connect your device to your PC or Mac. This update will more than likely be the last major platform update for the Xperia Ray, so make the most of it! Let us know what you think of the update.

Vodafone Foundation announces guest judge Guy Kawasaki for AppAid

A little while ago we told you about the Vodafone Foundation’s AppAid event, where developers can come together and work on some pretty nifty app ideas for some prominent charities. Over 48 hours, St Johns Ambulance, the Leukaemia Foundation, Oz Harvest, Starlight Children’s Foundation, NSW Wires and The Centre for Volunteering, are just some of the charities that will be working collaboratively with developers to build apps to help support their communities. The finer details can be read on our last post, but we teased that Vodafone Foundation had lined up a fairly prominent venture capitalist as a guest judge,[Read More...]

The Sony Xperia Ray will be getting a major update in the next few weeks according to Vodafone’s software update report.

Vodafone: Samsung submitting Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S III soon

Vodafone: Samsung submitting Jelly Bean update for Galaxy S III soon

Vodafone has published their weekly software update report, and the Galaxy S III is indeed a worthy mention — as we reported a little earlier today. Vodafone have confirmed that Samsung will be submitting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S III soon. “Manufacturer preparing update for submission to Vodafone for testing.” Vodafone don’t have an exact date, obviously, so one can only assume a release date for end users. We’re thinking some time in early October, or maybe late September if everything goes without a hiccup. Are you excited, Galaxy S III owners?

Vodafone App Aid: Calling all developers

Vodafone App Aid: Calling all developers

Vodafone have approached us and asked us to promote something for them, and we’ve decided to do it. Why? Because it’s for a good cause. Vodafone is asking for programmers, developers and designers to donate their time to help charities build smartphone apps for their communities, under Vodafone Foundation’s 48 hour hackathon event, aptly named App Aid, to be held in Sydney from 20 to 22 September. App Aid is supported not only by the Vodafone Foundation, but by Facebook and Samsung too – it has some pretty big backing. Participants have the opportunity to get themselves, and their ideas,[Read More...]

Vodafone Australia have today confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v will be receiving Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” in the form of an over-the-air update from today onwards.

The update is a staggered-release, so if the update isn’t ready for you today, it will certainly be available in the coming days. There’s no confirmed size for the update, though, as always, we highly recommend charging the battery to full and connecting to a stable internet connection[Read More...]

Vodafone wins the Nexus S Jelly Bean Challenge

It’s with good grace that I happily accept defeat, Vodafone has delivered -for real this time. Vodafone Nexus S customers are currently receiving the Jelly Bean OTA upgrade on their handsets as we speak, if you haven’t yet received it go to Settings > About Phone > Check For Updates and you should receive a prompt to install but it is a staggered rollout so don’t be alarmed if you haven’t got it just yet. Vodafone have delivered pretty well despite the early setback. Big thanks to the Vodafone software team and in particular Kieran Mcilwain for this one, it’s[Read More...]
