More phones confirmed to receive Ice Cream Sandwich update

It’s hardly a surprise given it’s popularity since it’s release, but the Samsung Galaxy S II has joined the ever growing list of phones that have had been confirmed to receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update, likely by mid Dec but officially “ASAP”.

In a sneaky information grab, we’ve also heard that the HTC Evo 3D will have the update as soon as it can be delivered. It’s really feeling like this release of Android is being better managed by Google and the hardware vendors to ensure that the maximum number of clients receive the update and that the user experience is better for those that do.

lol love samsung. 24 hours ago I asked them this question of ics. Their answer was nothing has been decided…
All I asked was would it be confirmed soon enough. I know its going to be available and I don’t want dates just confirmation that in future it will make it to the sgs2. I should have asked about the sgs if I wanted that reply lol.

But then how long will telstra take to release it to us? 6 months?

Probably, which when compared to other Australian carriers is express service.

Has the htc sensation xe been given the green light for ics? Only reason for my asking is between the nexus this to be my next phone and with beats audio combined with ics… maybe the choice for me..and others.

Its my hope for ics on the sgs too – can’t see any reason not to, and would rather not have to upgrade my phone until the end of my contract.

The i9000 will more than likely get an update – if not from samsung – from the cyanogen team.

 It shouldn’t be hard to get working with a fair bit of the preliminary porting work done with the sdk port.
