Ice Cream Sandwich for Samsung Galaxy S II hits Europe today

Ice Cream Sandwich for Samsung Galaxy S II hits Europe todayIt’s the question that has been on every Samsung Galaxy S II owner’s lips for the past – what? – four months: “Where the hell is my Ice Cream Sandwich, Sammo?”

Well get ready, Galaxy S II peeps, as Samsung has declared that it’s starting to roll out Android 4.0 in Europe from today.

Samsung took to Facebook and Twitter, and even fired out a press release detailing exactly how it’s going down.

The tweet reads: “#ICS for #GALAXYSII will be available today in Europe including Poland, Hungary, Sweden, & Korea, & gradually roll out to other markets.” Ok, so not quite hitting the UK just yet.

And there’s good news for owners of the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II LTE, Galaxy R, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1 (phew!), as Samsung promises Ice Cream Sandwich for those devices will “follow soon”.

JK Shin, Samsung’s President of IT & Mobile Communications, yelled: "We expect that our customers will enjoy an enhanced experience with their GALAXY device through this upgrade. Samsung is committed to satisfying our customer needs.”

Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus was of course the first device to rock Ice Cream Sandwich, launching way back in November 2011.

As i've already posted in the questions section. The UK SII gets ICS from the week commencing 19th of March. Source is Samsung Backstage which put it up on FB over an hour ago.

Then you have no right to nag at T-Mob to update your phone, ODIN is so easy to use. I'm currently using the Polish ICS build, it's great :).

Think I'll just wait for the official Uk release. Besides, I really like my v6.1 setup. I may just buy a cheap used SGS2 to experiment on with newer ROMS. That way I can always upgrade the ROM on my current SGS2 to one that I have tried and tested.

You have more money than sense mate :p.
