Another week had passed, and it’s time for our weekly review, the Week in Review @PocketDroid.

HTC treated the Incredible S with an ICS update. Here’s more info on that:

Smasung Galaxy Tab 7.7 received its ICS update, which pushed its version number to 4.0.4. Here’s the article:

Users from Europe, Austria and Germany owning GALAXY Tab 7.7 (GT-P6800) tablet have reportedly receiving Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich software update. The new firmware build is IMM76D XXLQ1, it is 237MB in size and it is now rolling out via OTA (over the air) and Samsung KIES software.

Google added official support for the Nexus S 4G again. Here are our thoughts about that:

Huawei released Ascend D1 3G in China. Here’s a paragraph from the story:
