LG announces Android 4.0 ICS upgrade plans

LG announces Android 4.0 ICS upgrade plans - read the full textLG might be slow on the actual upgrades, but at least it’ on time with the announcements. While most of the latest Optimus siblings are getting their first Gingerbread bite just now, LG announces they are all going to taste Ice Cream Sandwich too. The lucky devices are LG Optimus 3D, Optimus 2X,...

We shouldn't drop all of the blame on LG. In Mexico, Telcel released the 2.3 upgrade for Optimus One in late november, but if you check the software build it's dated september 20th. That means Telcel sat on it for two months, most likely adding their crap.

Most carriers didn't even bother with feature phone's firmware upgrades, so I'm actually surprised that they did with LG.

If they took two months to port their crap to a minor revision, I doubt they'll bother with a major upgrade to a phone that will be ancient by then. But still I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Its already the 29th of November, but still no Gingerbread update for my LG OPTIMUS BLACK. They postponed it AGAIN on the (can you imagine) FOURTH WEEK OF DECEMBER(yes! end of DECEMBER!!!) Now, I'm expecting ICS Update to be available maybe on 2014?? lol. Just saying..

Well considering I'm still waiting for this mythical 2.3 update to arrive here in the UK (a full month after being told it was being rolled out and almost a year after 2.3 was introduced) I'm not going to hold my breath.

I'm sure that by the time LG handsets get their 'taste' of Android 4.0, the rest of the Android community will be enjoying version 7.0!!!!

LG's mobile division is without doubt usless!

For the people on LG:

Now you can't say that the Optimus One doesn't support ICS!
