If I am not mistaken, the LG Nitro HD was the first Android based smart-phone released with a 720p touch-screen display. Well, since its launch and until today the LG Nitro HD has been running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. While this Android OS version has lots of interesting features, Android 4.0 ICS still beats them all. And finally, after pretty long wait, AT&T will update the first 720p smart-phone in its line with almost the freshest Android 4.0 ICS. So, if you are looking forward to get this update on a board of your precious device, do not forget to go to Settings>About>System Update and tap “Check Now.” Also, for more information you can check the official statement from AT&T:
Ice Cream Sandwich Update Available for LG Nitro HD Customers Beginning July 31
Beginning next Tuesday, AT&T customers who have an LG Nitro™ HD will be able to update their phone to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and will also have access to LG’s new Optimus 3.0 UI.
Optimus 3.0 is LG’s new user interface that lets Nitro HD customers unlock the phone by swiping anywhere on the screen, allowing for additional display customization such as using your own photos as icons and shortcut images, and the addition of a “Download” category in the menu for easier organization.
Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) simplifies common actions and includes a new typeface optimized for high-resolution screens to improve readability.
Customers can download the update by visiting www.lg.com/us/NitroHD-Upgrade from a personal computer and following the instructions on the site.
The most noticeable changes LG Nitro HD customers will see with this update are:
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 updated home 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 your data usage.
Face Unlock, a new screen-lock option that intelligently unlocks your device using facial recognition software.
