After Samsung announced the Galaxy S2 Android 4.0 update would be landing in the next week, all eyes swivelled to networks to see how long it might take them to release the update for one of the world's best phones.
A spokesperson for Three said: "We are testing Ice Cream Sandwich on the Galaxy S2 and the update is on track", but the network was unable to provide us with a roll-out date.
Where is my Android update?
The problem with Android updates is the process is so staggered, leading to consumers getting angry at the length of time it takes them to receive the next generation of software.
Once Google throws out the source code to the manufacturers, it's up to them to divert resources to combining the latest version of Android with their hardware – this can take longer if there's a skin running atop the OS, as is the case with the Galaxy S2.
And once that's complete, the likes of Vodafone and O2 then have to make sure there are no issues with the new firmware running with their networks – it may sound trivial, but you don't want something like this happening.
So unless you've bought an off-network phone, it's bad news for you at the moment – you're at the mercy of the providers and how much time and money they want to put into the upgrade (although do remember, this is a free service and doesn't really bring them much more revenue).
