Less than two weeks before releasing the new Samsung Galaxy S III, T-Mobile USA has great news for owners of the older Galaxy S II: their handset can be now officially upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The update – software version T989UVLE1 – brings Android 4.0.3 to the Galaxy S II, and is available only via Samsung Kies (hence you won’t be able to download it over the air). Apart from ICS, the update also includes Voicemail and Wi-Fi Calling enhancements. You can find out more details here at T-Mobile.
At the moment, T-Mobile is asking $229.99 for the Galaxy S II on contract. But no one should buy the handset now, since the Galaxy S III is going to be priced at only $199.99 when it arrives (on June 21), and the S II will certainly become cheaper then.
