Samsung Galaxy S2 Android Ice Cream Sandwich rollout delayed on T-Mobile?

Samsung Galaxy S2 owners on T-Mobile won’t be getting an OS update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) any time soon, a tweet from the carrier’s reps suggests.

O2, Orange, Vodafone and Three have all pushed out ICS to S2 users in recent weeks. That leaves just T-Mobile as the sole major UK carrier yet to make the latest version of Android available.

And, if a Twitter update from T-Mobile’s official account is anything to go by, it doesn’t look like that will change in the next few days.

Asked for a due date for ICS by a customer, the network’s social networking team rather worryingly revealed it has ‘no information about…the update at present’.

ICS, features of which include a revamped browser and the Face Unlock security function, debuted at the tail-end of 2011 on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

As ever, delays making it available for other Android kits have been caused by networks ensuring their proprietary services and apps work with a new version of Google’s operating system.

UPDATE

T-Mobile has told Tech Radar it will be rolling out the update later today.

A spokesperson assured the site: "We've been working closely with Samsung on this, and we can confirm that we will be rolling out the ICS update for Samsung Galaxy S2 from 22nd April."

So not as tardy as we thought, then. But it's still some way behind Three, which got ICS out to its customers a month ago.
