Android - Telstra

Once again, Telstra have provided an update on the status of their Android handset updates. It seems most devices with an impending update are set to receive them before the year’s end.

The long awaited Samsung Galaxy S II 4G Ice Cream Sandwich update is now rolling out as we speak. According to Telstra, the update is going to be staggered across the next two weeks:

  • Day 1-3 : 10k of devices selected at random to be eligible for update, users are either alerted via FOTA Push Message or by manually checking
  • Day 4-13: An additional 10% of devices are selected per day
  • Day 14: All devices are now eligible for update

The update weighs in around 190MB so you should download the update over wifi if you’re concerned about your data limit. It will also be available to all customers via Kies from 17:00 today (Friday 14th December).

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update is in testing and an approval date of 24th December is still on track.

The HTC One XL Jelly Bean update is also in testing and likewise is on track for an approval date of 24th December.

The Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update is a little ahead of the others and approval is expected on 19th December.

Finally, the Sony Xperia U Ice Cream Sandwich update is ahead of schedule and is likely to be available before the end of the year.
