UK MOBILE OPERATOR Vodafone has began rolling out Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) to Samsung Galaxy S II owners Over-the-Air (OTA) following its release through Samsung KIES last week.
Vodafone told The INQUIRER that despite previous setbacks, Android 4.0 ICS is arriving on Galaxy S II handsets Over-the-Air today, 17 April as planned. Users should receive a notification saying that it is available to download, and the network recommends that this be done over a secure WiFi connection.
Once installed, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will enable Samsung's flagship smartphone with a bunch of new features. These include Face Unlock functionality, an enhanced Android web browser, a tweaked user interface and Google's new People application.
It's not such good news for Everything Everywhere customers, however, as Orange and T-Mobile remain the only two networks that have yet to announce their Android 4.0 ICS rollout plans for the Galaxy S II.
Samsung said, "We can confirm that 'XEU/sim-free' and all network upgrades are now complete except for Orange and T-Mobile which will follow as soon as possible, pending software testing and approvals." µ
