Despite lucky Three users being able to update their Galaxy S IIs already, Samsung UK’s apparently still testing its Ice Cream Sandwich update. Apparently it’s “working hard” but can’t confirm exact dates for a rollout yet – you can stop hitting that “check for updates” button for a bit.
It seems mighty strange that a network like Three can push out its update with at least a couple of weeks lead on Samsung itself; even O2 claims it’ll have the update ready by the end of the month. Surely the build that the network operators are using came from Samsung originally?
“Samsung UK is working hard to bring Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to our Galaxy S II customers. We are unable to confirm exact dates as the software testing and approval process is subject to several variables, but we are working as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience.”
