2011 in tech – May

A bumper bonanza of Android smartphones hit the shelves in May – and early hints of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich emerged

May was a good month for Android smartphone fans, with three of the year's key phones released and an OS update announced.

The Samsung Galaxy S II was released at the start of the month – and quickly won over a legion of fans. We loved it – and it went on to scoop the Stuff Awards 2011 Phone of the Year.

HTC's flagship Sensation also hit the shelves, alongside the Motorola Atrix – and if that wasn't enough, the first hints of Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich dropped.

Meanwhile, early rumours of Amazon developing a colour tablet successor to the Kindle emerged – which would subsequently bear fruit in the form of the Kindle Fire.
