am using samsung sII was wondering how to upgrade the current gingerbread to a higher version
I still liked the Froyo. There is a wifi hotspot function bug on Gingerbread. I've encountered this on Gingerbread running Xperia Mini and Lenovo A60 but never on Froyo running Galaxy Mini and Galaxy Ace.

The title should be changed to :
"98.5% of Android handsets are now running on software that is more than 12 months old"
Of course this is only stock roms, all the people with custom roms out there which there are lots, I'm running on Android 2.3.7 at the moment with Miui, if these are just trends on Android the custom roms are still running Android so should not be forgotten

Why do gsmarena keep referring to "Gingebread" all the time? They know its real name is "Ginge_R_bread"...
The bigger question is whether phone manufacturers like Samsung will even roll-out ICS for their recently (with a big emphasis on the word "recently") released mid-range level phones like the Galaxy W or Ace Plus as not everyone will or can buy a high-end device like the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S2, or Galaxy R.
ICS for Nexus S has a a number of bugs which is why a number of Nexus S users (like me) are not using it, I am still on Gingerbread. I don't think any of the phones will get ICS before Nexus because it's google's phone and google did say that NS users can expect special treatment. In software update area Nexus series will always be the 1st to get new official stuff, it's the point of Google Nexus
Just a matter of time for all these Froyo/Gingerbread phones get ICS.
Ron, 04 Jan 2012What does "a couple of smartphones" mean???it means: Galaxy Nexus + Nexus S have ICS for now.
