Samsung Galaxy S2 owners on Vodafone will be able to update their handset to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) version of Android via an over-the-air (OTA) download today. Pending a repeat of last-minute glitches, that is.
Voda initially planned to push out the platform bump to Android 4.0 over the air on April 12th. However, citing delays at Samsung’s end, it postponed the rollout until today.
If users wanted to get their two scoops of ICS in the meantime they had to plug their phone into their desktop or lappy and grab it through Sammy’s Kies download solution – a method markedly more fiddly and less user-friendly than simply getting it over the air.
At the time of writing, Voda’s CS reps assured us that today's OTA update is going ahead today as planned. Although the fact that it is set to be rolled out in stages means it’s hard to say for sure.
Features ICS brings to the Galaxy S2 include the much-maligned Face Unlock security feature, plus new versions of native apps and slicker multi-tasking.
If you’re got ICS on your Vodafone-branded Galaxy S2 or you’re still waiting, let us know in the comments section below.
