Back in December, we got the first news about Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates for a few smartphones sold by Bell in Canada. And all we had until today were those vague (‘H1 2012′) release time frames.
Not anymore, since a full list of Bell Android devices that will get ICS updates has made its way to MobileSyrup. What’s even better is that they have slightly less vague release time frames attached too.
So, without further ado… here’s which devices will get ICS and when:
- Samsung Galaxy S II: April
- Samsung Galaxy Note: April
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: May
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE: June
- HTC Sensation: June
- HTC Raider: June
- LG Optimus LTE: July
So now at least you know, even though in some cases you still face up to four months of waiting from this point on. By the time Bell’s LG Optimus LTE gets ICS, this version of Android will have been on the market for eight months.
Don’t, however, hastily accuse (just) the manufacturers for this situation. The ICS update for the internationally-sold HTC Sensation is already out. So why exactly it will take Bell an additional three months to release it is anyone’s guess.
