With Android 4.0 all the rage these days, we thought we’d share that the Virtuous team has released their Virtuous Quattro RC1 to the public. The Virtuous team was first thrown into the spotlight in the middle of last year when they were the first to port HTC Sense 3.0 to a handful of HTC devices.

Virtuous Quattro was announced in early January and the team of developers has been working around the clock to get as many handset features operational as possible for the HTC Incredible S, HTC Desire HD, HTC Desire S and HTC Desire Z. I spent the better part of the afternoon playing around with Virtuous Quattro on my T-Mobile G2 and can say that the Virtuous team has done an amazing job. Yes, there are some good Android 4.0 ports out there for various HTC phones, but little things like Quattro Control, which enables additional lockscreen features and other system tweaks, give Virtuous Quattro a leg up on the competition.

That being said, Virtuous Quattro RC1 isn’t without its flaws. The camera application still has its issues, and there are graphic glitches in a handful of applications. Fortunately, the team has been pushing out updates in rapid succession, so we should see fixes for these¬†minor¬†issues within the next week or two.
