Vodafone: Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich on Thursday

Vodafone: Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich on ThursdayWill the Samsung Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) saga ever end? Well, obviously, yes. But it’s fair dragging on.

Recently we’ve heard about problems upgrading the Samsung Galaxy S II to Ice Cream Sandwich via Kies, but we’ve got some positive news today courtesy of Vodafone.

The official word from Vodafone’s mouth is: “The Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for Samsung Galaxy S II has now been approved, and is set to be available on 12th April via Over The Air update and Samsung KIES. This is a provisional date which could change, but we'll let you know here if that's the case.”

April 12, of course, being tomorrow. Good times.

It’s slightly worrying that Thursday is still just a ‘provisional’ date, but hopefully no news is good news (the above was posted by Vodafone yesterday morning).

Ice Cream Sandwich was debuted on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus back in November, and now – five months later – appears on just 2.9% of Android devices.

And already there’s talk of Android Jelly Bean arriving in Q3. Great stuff.

On the downside, TouchWiz with ICS is broken. It just doesn't work correctly, nothing is smooth and it's slower than GB.

CM9 (or GB TouchWiz) all the way, I'm afraid.

That's a shame for SGSII owners.
HTC have really done the business with their Sensation update and the Sense experience just got a whole lot smoother. Shame Samsung couldn't do the same.

Well shame for those who can't cope with putting a custom rom on.

I suspect given the number sold that there they may be just a few.
