Vodafone’s website came out with the statement that Samsung would not be making the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 as earlier promised.
The forum of Vodafone ran this statement, “Unfortunately, Samsung have told us this morning that they are unable to make the update available to you as planned.”
The update was originally promised to roll out on April 12, though it had warned that the release date was a “provisional date which could change.”
The delay is not long and is only a day or so long as the update came out via Samsung’s Kies desktop software on 13th and the over-the-air update would reach Samsung Galaxy S2 users tomorrow: on 17 April.
The statement mentioned, “The new plan from Samsung is that the update will be available via KIES tomorrow, April 13, and via Over The Air update on Tuesday, April 17. If this moves at all, we’ll of course let you know.”
Onlookers are keeping their fingers crossed that another announcement about yet another postponement does not stare at them on the face. Over-the-air update is considered more convenient for users, though some can also try plugging the S2 into a PC and to figure out the supposedly ‘horrible’ Kies software.
In the announcement, Vodafone wrote, “I know a lot of you, like us, will be disappointed at this last-minute change of plan.’ However, it went on to promise that it will “continue to challenge Samsung to make this available to you as quickly as possible”.
Vodafone had originally planned to get S2 owners updated today. It did warn at the time that the 12 April estimate
Samsung Galaxy S2 customers are now desperate for the ilong awaited Ice Cream Sandwich update and Three and O2 have already managed to make their customrs happy by providing them with the happy Ice Cream Sandwich update. Vodafone would be next in getting the Ice Cream Sandwich update to its customers. The Samsung Galaxy S2 owners in the lousiest position would be those having SIM-free tabs. The reason why they are left behind is that Samsung has plans to give then the update only “once we’ve got all of the operator pieces on board.”
The latest Android OS, the Ice Cream Sandwich, was launched last November an users have been waiting ever since for their precious Ice Cream Sandwich updates. The Samsung Galaxy S2 was the most popular smart phone as a candidate for the Ice Cream Sandwich and owners had been on tenterhooks about their updates.
