Android CentralWith the HTC One series launch buzz beginning to settle down, the past seven days have been a little quieter than usual. Nevertheless, the steady stream of device updates and announcements has continued, even if the pace has been a little slower.

Sony Mobile is kicking off its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update project, with Scandinavian countries being the first to get a taste of ICS on the Xperia Ray, Xperia Arc S and Xperia Neo V. Meanwhile, long-suffering Galaxy S II owners in Vodafone UK finally got their ICS update, as did Nexus S users on Wind Mobile and Videotron in Canada.

There were also a couple of interesting new device announcements -- Vodafone and Huawei announced the Ascend G 300, a surprisingly high-specced entry-level phone, while Korea got a bright pink Galaxy Note.

And later in the week, HTC addressed reports that some One S phones were experiencing chipped edges on their ceramic coating -- owners of affected phones can return their handset for a refund, or have it replaced under warranty. The manufacturer also says it's making small changes to ensure the problem doesn't crop up again.
