zamroni, 30 Oct 2011SE and Samsung could have torpedoed Nokia if they give Symbian^3 to Satio, Vivaz and Omnia HD ... moresammy dropped symbian coz they have their dreams of dethroning nokia. Look at sammy now.
Well I found out an article somehow related to this... Check it out:
I was expecting much more from LG, updating Optimus One to Android 2.3
I'm never gonna buy LG phones from now on. Gonna get rid of my 2X now
What?! It hasn't even been a year and it's already unsupported? Say it ain't so, LG! Just bring on Gingerbread then update it to ICS next year.
JLyc, 30 Oct 2011SE Satio started with Symbian OS v9.4,Series 60 rel 5. Symbian is getting old and has aged... moreSE and Samsung could have torpedoed Nokia if they give Symbian^3 to Satio, Vivaz and Omnia HD when Nokia launched N8.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2011it wont even get gingerbread! lg makes nice hardware and design, but on the software, they are... moreNokia is good in giving OS patch or update. It is just the hardware spec limitation that makes its S60 devices can't get Symbian^3 or N8 can't get Belle.
This LG is as bad as past SE. Probably some stupid former SE product teams joined LG.
LG Mobile Facebook page tells a different story.
Will the LG Optimus 2X be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich? I read that ICS supports multi-core processors. I am aware that the hardware on the phone is more than capable of running the new Android OS and since it has not yet been updated to Gingerbread, I really hope that things turn around with ICS.
Answer: Hey Rahul, We do have a plan to update Ice Cream Sandwich.Now we are working on it! When the date is set we will let you know through Facebook! Please check our wall regularly! Cheers
grv, 29 Oct 2011Ur adorable sony ericsson had ditched SE Satio users for not providing better customer supoort... moreSE Satio started with Symbian OS v9.4,Series 60 rel 5.
Symbian is getting old and has aged over the years. It has lived its purpose.....I adored Symbian and used Nokia all the time until I switch to Android and also iOS for new technology and experience.
Nokia should have embraced Android.....I'll stay with them. That was one of the main reason Nokia's fall in sales together with Sony's volume.....they realized it too late. This gave Apple, Samsung and HTC the opportunities to grow.
My family and I'm still have all my Nokia Symbians in my collection.
There is nothing much Sony could do.....that is why it has to adopt Android OS to stay in the market.
If Sony fails to maintain its update, I'll also abandon it. We are all the consumers.....we choose the best that services us.....that is norm for the telcos survival.
I felt sad and sorry for myself and Symbian users.
Prada K2 is stated to come with ICS and seems to have some killer specs so if you're going the LG route, I suggest wait for more info on that one.
LG handsets have always been made to be replaced in a year or so. It's the way they've always done it, and it's the way they'll always do it.
This is a huge fail by LG. Now noone will never see the true power of 2x. 4.0 is the first Adroid to truly fully support dual-core. So sad news.
Good thing I didn't buy this phone. Aside from battery and stability issues, they refuse to update the phone OS. I'm never getting an LG again.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2011it wont even get gingerbread! lg makes nice hardware and design, but on the software, they are... moreYou mean they are like Nokia that offers updates to phones sometimes 4 years after release? Like Nokia in that they offer lot of updates even to phones that aren't flagships?
This may be false information! Look here, http://www.facebook.com/LGMobile/posts/298000743544586 LG says here they DO have plans for ICS. It would really be a shame if they didn't.
it wont even get gingerbread! lg makes nice hardware and design, but on the software, they are like nokia. outdated! they should set some staff on the street, and hire someone who can make things happen!
Hmm i just have something on my mind about this situation and i think the people is getting wrong message or may be GSMarena too.. o.0. Don't you guys realize the meaning of the sentences in there? If not, read it again...
"Dear Anant, We will not be introducing Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich updates on LG Optimus 2X P990. Keep watching this space for further updates"
Since O2X haven been upgrade to Gingerbread yet, in that sentences, there is no prove that ICS will not given for O2X in next time. LG declare will not be introducing Android 4.0 becoz 2.3 haven introduce to the phone yet. So, there is possible to get some good news "KEEP WATCHING THIS SPACE FOR FURTHER UPDATE"....Believe it or not, this is just my thoughts =)
