    $99 Chinese Tablet Is MIPS-Based, Runs Android 4.0

    You could be forgiven for overlooking the Ainovo Novo7, a 7-inch Chinese Android tablet, as likely just another me-too device to be sold in electronics districts next to fake iPhones and bulk cables.

    Dream Come True: Ice Cream Sandwich Comes To The HTC G1, Unofficially

    HTC’s G1, the first Android phone, had a long and interesting life until it was retired last year, and although I loved the phone, I’ll be the first to admit that being limited to Android 1.6 was kind of a disappointment.
