The HTC G1 still remains in the retinas of many technophiles of pro. This terminal, also known under the nickname of HTC Dream, you will pass to the annals of technological history being the first smartphone to be marketed with a primitive version of Android in 2008. A terminal that refuses to leave room to new generations of devices thanks to the contributions of independent developers who have been offering tailored software updates, in the absence of an official update provided by the Taiwanese manufacturer.
Such is the case presented to us from the hands of jcarrz1 and stritfajt, members of the Forum XDA-Developers to, following the tradition, have led Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to a HTC G1, resulting in what you can see in the video below.
The video can be interpreted by getting two very different readings. On the one hand, the fact of being something promising and revolutionary, positioning itself against a rapidly changing industry and giving dead any appliance to market convenience.
Truth is that by the time they have failed to operate the connections Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as the automatic screen rotation is not operational and the GUI doesn’t behave as fluid as it would be desirable. So, in a way, the obsolescence of the device could be more than proven for the purpose of performance.
However, this does not prevent to think that Perhaps the G1 HTC could have been entitled to be fully operational until the arrival of Android 2.2 Froyo last year, thus obtaining a useful life of at least a two-year cycle, follow a policy of updates regular, reason for many of the ills befalling to Android, as we saw in the analysis made in these same pages about the security of the platform and terminals.
But aside from various speculations about the obsolescence of our most precious devices, is actually somewhat impressive think Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich might be refined enough to operate in a way “ fairly normal ” on a device that is about to enter its fourth year of life.
Something possible, seen the, and pending that these selfless programmers are able to further Polish the “ build ” of Google’s operating system, for the remainder still much work ahead.
