Default LG Android 4.0 upgrades Optimus 2X in Q2 2012

Anyone wanna guess the delay duration?

Quote:
LG plans to begin upgrading its portfolio of Android handsets to Ice Cream Sandwich in the second quarter of next year, the company has just announced. Among the first phones to benefit from Android 4.0 will be the Optimus 2X, which launched as the world's first dual-core smartphone earlier this year, the recent Optimus LTE, and the upcoming Prada Phone. They'll be followed by the Optimus 3D, Optimus Black, Optimus Big, and a couple of other handsets in Q3 of 2012. Not exactly the most aggressive rollout roadmap in the world, but we'd rather see the ICS upgrade happen later than never.

Importantly, LG continues to make no mention of the American variants of these phones such as the T-Mobile G2x or the AT&T Thrill 4G and Nitro HD what their fate will be remains to be seen.

Good news, screw the american versions, they need to be updated by their carriers anyway.

Just wish nvidia would released their crap so the dev community can make a decent ICS release NOAW.

Q2 ends in late june, maybe that's when we'll get it.

LG won't release ICS on early april. That's a fact.

Maybe yes, maybe now. It can be the same situation as with Gingerbread. CM was provided before the official release.
