LG Prada 3.0 gets Android 4.0.4 ICS update, in Italy and Germany at least

What’s a fashion phone to do when it’s getting fashionably late to the ICS party?

We don’t have to look for the answer, because LG has started to roll out the promised Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the LG P940 Prada 3.0 phone. According to the company’s international blog, the ICS upgrade is available for owners of the Prada 3.0 in Germany and Italy. Furthermore, it’s only available for unlocked phones that aren’t tied to any carrier in the respective countries. It’s possible that it will come to more countries soon.

To get the Android 4.0.4 update for your phone, you’ll have to download LG Mobile Phone support tool, which is available only for Windows. Once you’ve installed the application and the necessary USB driver for the phone, connect your Prada to the PC via USB and check for the ICS update. In no time at all, you’ll be running the not-so-latest fashionable mobile OS in town, no thanks to Jelly Bean.

Aside from ICS, you’ll also find a new QuickMemo app installed, which is a note-taking app that can be handily activated by pressing both volume buttons at the same time. You can then save and easily share the note via email or to various social networks.

If you’re not in the two countries listed above, it’s worth checking for the ICS update on LG Mobile phone support software. Remember to leave some comments if you have some good news – or not so good ones – to share.

    Poland has got it too. Mine was bought from T-Mobile, but it’s not T-Mobile branded, so Android is untouched and clean. LG PC Suite works for it too, no need to do upgrade by LG Support Tool. After connection to PC, LG Suite found an upgrade as well. Upgrade comes with some new features, but it takes some off too, like that nice music wall which showed up while rotate screen in music player. Also music settings has been has been changed. Equalizer allows to set each frequency independently, which is nice. What I don’t like is that menu icons moves horizontally, and there is no option to change them to move vertically. The whole OS is not that ultra-fast like it was on 2.3.7., but I can’t say it’s slow. It’s fast, but before it was bit faster. The new lockscreen is pretty fine and gives us new option, but to be honest i liked previous bit more than this one. Maybe it’s just a matter of time to get use to it.

    the update isn’t out in Singapore (Asia-Pacific) just yet…
    The message that I get is:

    Update not required.
    Your mobile phone software is the latest version.
    You do not need to update it.

    HOW ABOUT IN THE PHILIPPINES, WHEN CAN I UPGRADE MY PRADA TO ICS

  • NISH

    ICS 4.0.4 IS AVAILABE IN UK FOR LG PRADA 3.0 SIMFREE. I HAVE RECENTLY UPGRADED USING THE LG PC SUITE. DON’T USE THE LG SUPPORT TOOL.
    I WOULD SAY IT MUCH FASTER THAN 2.3.7 AND BATTERY LIFE HAS BEEN IMROVED WITH RIGHT SETTING THE BATTERY WOULD LAST FOR 24 HOURS EASILY.
