Maps update for Windows Phone 8 available, small improvements in tow

DNP  Windows Phone 8 mapping update available,

A new update for Maps on Windows Phone 8 has been spotted in the wild, and it supposedly improves the quality of, well, maps — including those downloaded for offline use. There’s no push mechanism for getting this refresh, though, so those with a WP8 device will want to check for it via the Settings menu. What’s changed, exactly? According to WMPoweruser, maps have improved detail and traffic info. If you’ve downloaded the update, tell us about it in the comments below.

Sony Xperia Tablet S Gets Minor “release6a” Update

 

While the Sony Xperia Tablet S may just be getting over its physical defects, it is now getting some love thanks to a minor OTA update that is being pushed out to the tablet. This minor update dubbed “release6a” brings a major VPN fix to users who encountered issues trying to log onto corporate or enterprise networks. Sure the minor update still keeps the tablet on Android 4.0.3, but any update is better than no update, right?

If you own the tablet, be sure to head on down to your Settings and System Updates in order to grab the latest update immediately.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T receiving minor update

Android Central

Well, how convenient. We've posted earlier today that the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T was getting a small bugfix update, and now the TF700T is getting its own.

The update is small, mostly updating the camera firmware and fixing some bugs here and there.

If you've got a Transformer Pad TF700T laying around, head to Settings > About tablet > Software updates and see if your device is ready to download the update. Once you get it, chime in in the forums and let us know how it's working.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T updated with minor stability fixes

Android Central

ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T owners are reporting that they're receiving another over-the-air update today, designed to improve stability of the Tegra 3-based tablet. Since the TF300T has already received its update to Jelly Bean, there are no significant changes to the underlying Android framework. But hopefully this latest OTA will fix some of the performance and usability issues that have been reported by some TF300T owners. The update brings the tablet up to version 10.4.2.13, still based upon the latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

If you've got a Transformer Pad TF300T, head to Settings > About tablet > Software updates to see if the new version is ready to download onto your tablet. Once you're installed, hit the comments and let us know how you're getting on.

Rogers pushing out ICS updates to the Moto Razr

This image has no alt text

Good news, our Canadian Moto Razr users: the ICS update to your phones seems to have been released a wee bit earlier than the “early September” launch we had expected. Once done with the download-and-install process your phone would make the sizable jump to Android 4.0.4. As always , if you’re not seeing the update notification, perform a manual check from within the Settings app.

T-Mobile Springboard 4G tablet getting ICS tomorrow

Android Central

In addition to confirming that its Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is getting ICS right now, T-Mobile USA has set out word that its Springboard 4G tablet will also see an upgrade to Android 4.0 from tomorrow, Aug. 15. The 7-inch Android tablet launched last October with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, so Springboard owners have had a long wait for their first major OS update.

Unlike the Tab 7 Plus, the Springboard will be getting updated over-the-air, so if you've still got one, head to Settings > About tablet > Software updates in the next day or so to see if your update is ready to roll out.
