Huawei MediaPad goes ICS

huawei-mediapad-ics-updateJust as they previously promised, Huawei, makers of one of the first Honeycomb tablets, the MediaPad, have just made the Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich update available to end users. The update will not go out OTA, but instead you will need to download it manually. It comes in at a hefty 329MB, but it does appear to be a stock version of ICS, which is greatly appreciated. Supposedly, installation instructions are inside the Zip download file.

The BlackBerry PlayBook powered police car


The one thing that really drew my attention when I entered the BlackBerry World showcase was a beautiful Canadian police car.

The force now has a few squad cars with the BlackBerry PlayBook mounted on the dashboard. The police officers also each carry a BlackBerry Smartphone and the two devices work in conjunction with one another.

The PlayBook gives officers quick access to a varity of apps from criminal databases to printing tickets.

The best bit though is how it controls the flashing red and blue lights.

Check out the video below. It is awesome!
