If you are a Samsung Galaxy SII owner in the UK then most likely you are feeling a strong sense of annoyance right now with the manufacturer who advised that they would push out Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) via KIES (Samsung Software) to owners of the popular handset starting the week of the 19th of March 2012. Of course it could be argued that they worded this very well in saying that it would commence on the 19th as technically speaking they did.
Three announced that their version of the update was available the following day and users on that Network have now had the update for almost a week however to the despair of others on Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone there is still no date in sight.
Understandably a lot of people are annoyed about this however none more so than those who purchased the handset sim free when it was released and spent a lot of money on it only to find that the Manufacturer would release their official update after a carrier, who we should mention actually customised what Samsung had sent them for their own use.
Today Samsung UK Twitter posted the following statement.
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.
We would like to know your thoughts on this subject and please be as vocal as you feel you have to be. Also please leave comments below stating if you bought your SII Sim Free or via a Network.
