T-Mobile Galaxy S II To Taste Ice Cream Sandwich On June 11th
By on June 2nd, 2012

T-Mobile has announced via its official Twitter account that the carrier will start rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S II (T989) from June 11th. This makes T-Mobile the first operator in the United States to update its Galaxy S II variant to Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the T-Mobile Galaxy S II will bring with it lots of new features, including new Google Apps, Face Unlock, GPU rendering, data usage tracking and more. However, most of the visual goodness introduced by Google in ICS will be missing from this update, thanks to Samsung’s TouchWIZ infested UI.

With T-Mobile announcing the ICS roll out for its variant of the Galaxy S II, it will just be a matter of time before AT&T and Sprint also announce the Ice Cream Sandwich update roll-out for their variants of the Galaxy S II.

Samsung had initially started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S II back in mid-March in certain regions of the world. Since then, the company has rolled out the update to various other regions of the world, except for the United States, along with the ICS update for the Galaxy Note.

    While I love Android this is downright pathetic, Google is one of the biggest companies out there and they don’t even bother pushing updates and now 5.0 is around the corner.
