LG took a decade to release GB for us, expect huge delays on this schedule.

Q2 and Q3!!!???? You have to wonder what they are doing which requires between 3 and 9 MONTHS to put ICS on their phones. I've gone Nexus, and I may well never go back simply because of garbage like this.

Hi guys HTC said {HTC knows how excited our fans are to get their hands on Google's latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, so we're thrilled today to announce the first wave of HTC phones that will receive upgrades: We can confirm the brand new HTC Vivid is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich. In addition, Ice Cream Sandwich is coming in early 2012 to a variety of devices including the HTC Sensation, HTC Sensation XL and HTC Sensation XE, as well as the HTC Rezound, HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Amaze 4G through close integration with our carrier partners. We're continuing to assess our product portfolio, so stay tuned for more updates on device upgrades, timing and other details about HTC and Ice Cream Sandwich.} THAT MEANS FIRST QUARTER FOR HTC HANDSET FOR ICS UPGRADES ..........

GSMARENA rightly said that Lg announced first dual core phone but updates its phones at the last. HTC, Samsung, SE all giving ICS in first quarter but only LG giving ICS in 2nd and 3rd quarter.

Thats why nobody buys LG. Prices of LG mobiles are not stable.

better because more lg phones will get it then samsung or htc, try to understand what you are reading. sony also said 2nd quarter, and htc and samsung didn't yet post exact dates so no proof they will get it in 1st quarter either.
