Samsung Galaxy S2 Android Ice Cream Sandwich hits Orange tomorrow

Orange will push out the latest version of Android to the Samsung Galaxy S2 tomorrow, leaving the carrier’s partner T-Mobile as the sole major UK carrier yet to make the update available to its customers.

Orange confirmed its plan to roll out Android 4.0, AKA Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), to the Galaxy S2 with a post on Twitter. Interestingly, the network’s tweet states that ICS will be available via Samsung’s proprietary download solution Kies, but makes no mention of an easier to implement over-the-air (OTA) update.

However, we suspect that an OTA platform bump, which does away with the rigmarole of hooking up your phone to your lappy or desktop, will be along at some stage soon, in the manner of the staggered procedure Vodafone followed for its upgrade program.

Features ICS brings to the handset include a battery-life boost, an improved browser and the fun but rather too easy to hoodwink Face Unlock security function.
