    Chrome Browser not compatible with the Mercury

    Has anybody been able to install the new Chrome Browser on the Huawei Mercury? Just says, not compatible with my device.

    Wondering if rooting my Mercury will allow me to install?

    Its only for phones running ICS. All Non-ICS phones cannot run chrome. Mercury's latest firmware is gingerbread.

    Maybe rooting the phone and changing the build prop info would do it, but I'm not sure.

    Chrome works great on my Mercury, not sure why you need ICS?

    Also, Know of any software or solutions to root the Mercury without a PC or Tablet?

    BTW -Any other software suggestions from 4shared.com for my Mercury?

    Thanks again

    Thanks, I think I'll try best buy or office Depot first and I can't believe a library computers aren't more restricted. Have to read root via recovery to get the files I need. Have to be quick...

    Thanks for all the info.

    This is not Chrome, it is a reskinned version of Mirren Browser. It even says it in the opening messages. Sorry to burst the bubble, but this has been out there for weeks.

    Same here, going to iPhone 4 on Sprint next week. Love Android, but sick of carriers and manufacturers ignoring version updates.

    Seriously considered Sprint but their 3g is pretty bad. Plus no 4g in Vegas yet.

    Why not wait until October for their iphone 5?

    My wife has iPhone, so she likes that we can facetime when she is in school, and the price is good on iphone 4 right now.
