Android enthusiasts are really very eager to own Android latest Ice Cream Sandwich. And finally, the highly awaited Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update is available for Samsung Galaxy S II in the UK. However, Samsung persisted over its promise that the company will roll out the Android ICS update in Europe before the end of March this year. The update is presently available only on O2 operating carrier in the UK, while S II owners on other networks such as Vodafone, T-Mobile and Orange, will have to wait for sometimes till the next announcement of the company. However, the Company has not yet officially declared that when it is going to launch the update in the US.
The company said in its press release, “ICS for Galaxy S2 will be available today in Europe, including Poland, Hungary, Sweden and Korea & gradually roll out to other markets. Samsung Electronics has completed upgrading the Galaxy devices to Gingerbread last year by providing software upgrades to both Froyo and Gingerbread. With the ICS upgrade, Samsung Electronics has solidified its position as the leader of Android devices.”
Some other devices which are going to be updated including the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2 LTE, Galaxy R, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1. The firmware updates for Gingerbread devices such as Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab 7”, Galaxy S Plus, Galaxy S SCL (Super clear LCD), and Galaxy W, will also roll out at the end of this month. It’s quite obvious that why Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Nexus were among the most popular device in the last year. Indeed, the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade will definitely make the device more competitive and will bring refinement for users.
Beside Samsung, HTC has also brought Android 4.0 update for its “Vivid” model, which has been availed by AT&T carrier in the US. I think, AT&T has become the first carrier to bring Android 4.0 update in the US.
