Today we have some good news for owners of the LG Nitro HD on AT&T. Your smartphone will soon be able to take advantage of Android 4.0; while it is not the latest version of Android, unfortunately, it is still a solid version of Android that will bring about several new features and enhancements. AT&T announced today that the Android 4.0 ICS update will drop on July 31. LG has its own way of performing software upgrades, so we need you to navigate to LG’s website in order to perform the ICS upgrade on July 31 when it is officially available. In terms of features, Nitro HD users will receive Optimus 3.0 UI, which allows for new functions with the lock screen. In addition, ICS brings:
• New lock screen actions let you conveniently jump directly to a specific application without unlocking the homescreen. • The redesigned Gallery App & Photo Editor makes it easier to manage, show, and share photos and videos than ever before. • An updatedhome screen folder and favorites tray that lets you group your apps and shortcuts logically by simply dragging one onto another. • Enhanced multitasking capabilities let you instantly navigate from one task to another by leveraging a list in the System Bar that includes thumbnail images of all recently used apps. Just tap the thumbnail to resume using that app. • Improved text input with an updated keyboard that supports faster text input and more accurate entries with better error correction and word suggestions. • An app that helps you easily monitor yourdata usage. • Face Unlock, a new screen-lock option that intelligently unlocks your device using facial recognition software.
