The folks at LG have let known today what and when they plan on doing with their active line of smart devices in regards to the newest Google-made mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. What they've got on the books as of today is a "global upgrade schedule" beginning in the second and third quarters of 2012, followed then by a "global roll out." There is a list, of course, which we're hoping LG will follow implicitly, as they promise that they're "taking all possible measure to offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner." On the other hand, they do not that exact start dates very well could vary by market as each country, carrier, and smartphone model have different requirements.
What LG is announcing today is a start of 2012 upgrades to Ice Cream Sandwich with the LG Optimus LTE, Prada phone by LG 3.0, the LG Optimus 2X, the LG Optimus Sol, the LG my Touch Q and the LG Eclipse, each of these starting in the second quarter of the year. After these are updated, or so it's implied, we'll see updates to the LG Optimus 3D, the LG Optimus Black, the LG Optimus Big, the LG Optimus Q2 and the LG Optimus EX. The second part of this list is said to begin in the third quarter of 2012. LG also noted:
LG would like to thank its customers for their most valued loyalty and support. Further details on the ICS OS upgrade, including their exact start dates, will be released prior to their commencement. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG. Thank you.
Sound reasonable to all you LG device owners? The one device your humble narrator hopes will come first is the LG Optimus 2X, as that device is a beast and without a doubt one of the most nicely constructed smartphones in history. Meanwhile you've all got the option to root and wait for CyanogenMod to do its job much, much quicker.
