Android Ice Cream Sandwich coming to LG Optimus phones after all

LG will be showering Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) love on its toppermost Android phones after all, having previously appeared to rule out an update to the nattiest version of Google’s OS.

LG, which last month attracted howls of outrage from piqued Optimus 2X owners who were told they were being frozen out of ICS, announced its dramatic about-turn in a post on its official Facebook page.

According to the phone-maker, the 2X is first in line for the OS bump, with "other LG high-end smartphones” (we’re assuming that means the Optimus 3D and Optimus Black) to follow.

"LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update for the LG Optimus 2X as well as other LG high-end smartphones.

"Detailed information on the ICS OS update schedule for specific models will be announced, once the ICS OS is publicly released by Google. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG,” the South Korean company stated.

The chagrin of Optimus 2X owners was fuelled by the fact that the handset is a matter of months old, so ought to have been a shoo-in for a platform upgrade.
