Samsung GALAXY Note (AT&T), Samsung GALAXY S II and GALAXY S II Skyrocket, the Android 4.0 ICSwill be coming to your devices.
Android ICS Update for Samsung GALAXY Note AT&T
Samsung just rolled out some Android ICS updates for those aforementioned devices above. The first one is Samsung GALAXY Note for the AT&T variant. The ICS update for this Phone-to-Tablet device interestingly will be packed together with Samsung Premium Suite, which is released exclusively for this device, at least for now.
The update, according to Engadget, is said will roll out on Tuesday. Besides new standard features like Face Unlock and Android Beam, this ICS update also comes with Nova Launcher, which gives you the experience of using the stock Android 4.0 UI, if you’re not a big fan of TouchWiz.
Other features like improved data usage tool (which is important to monitor the data you’re using), reworked S Menu app and new S Note app. So be sure to check out the update on AT&T website for more information.
Android ICS Update for Samsung GALAXY S II
The next device that will get the pure love of Ice Cream Sandwich is Samsung GALAXY S II. The ICS update for this device is now available to get over-the-air via the Kies software and it will come as Android version 4.0.4.

Anyway, this ICS update for “Skyrocket” is now available to snatch via the Kies software. Not to mention, unlike the ICS update on Samsung GALAXY Note (AT&T), the ICS updates for GALAXY SII and GALAXY SII Skyrocket don’t come with Samsung Premium Suite.
So if you’re using one of those 3 devices above, or maybe, all of them, then be sure to check out these ICS updates before ICS becomes outdated in Android community when the Jelly Bean arrives in near upcoming months.

LG Singapore Confirms that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is Coming to some of LG Optimus Series
Unlike Sony Mobile, phone manufacturer like LG is not the kind of company that really shows enthusiasm in releasing Ice Cream Sandwich updates for their phone users. It’s actually proved by how the owners of LG’s smartphones are still waiting curiously whether they will receive the Android ICS updates for their devices or sadly, not.
Luckily, a good news just arrived. LG Singapore recently just stated that the
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is about to arrive soon (or later) on particular handsets, such as: LG Optimus LTE, LG Prada 3.0, LG Optimus Black, LG Optimus 3D, and LG Optimus 2X. However, LG Singapore is still hesitant to leak the roll out date of the ICS updates to the public, although they have given a hint that says the updates will come out “in due time”.
Actually, based on LG’s recent history in Ice Cream Sandwich updates, this company seemed halfhearted in delivering the ICS updates to its phone users. It happened already before when
LG Optimus 2X was decided by LG would get the Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
Unfortunately, the US variant of that device, which is called as T-Mobile G2X, didn’t receive the update. So it’s still uncertainty whether the news brought by LG Singapore are actually addressed for those using the handsets in Singapore only, or the global users.
So if you’re still curious whether this news will only be applied for the owners in the Singapore or otherwise, worldwide users, you should keep yourself updated by visiting your chosen carrier or LG official website based on your country.
