Will 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.
