Unfortunately for Android device users, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is not seeing the widespread adoption Google has probably hoped for, and, more than six months after it was introduced, ICS is only available on just over 7% of Android devices.
Sure, ICS is not compatible with older hardware, but even former flagship devices from various Android device makers are receiving their ICS flavors a lot later than Android users would have wanted.
Today, we have good news for Rogers Samsung Galaxy S2 owners, as their highly anticipated Android 4.0 update is finally being delivered. The news comes from MobileSyrup, and the above screenshots reveal that the actual ICS version Rogers Galaxy S2 users will be getting is Android 4.0.4 .
According to the publication, in order to get the update, Galaxy S2 owners will have to connect their handset via Kies. But, other than that everything should be fine and they should finally experience ICS on their beloved devices.
Just a few days ago, we heard that two other Canadian carriers have released ICS upgrades for other Galaxy S2 versions that are available in the region, Bell’s Galaxy S2 and Telus’ Galaxy S2 X, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see Rogers join the party.
We’ll be following closely the ICS upgrades for other major Android smartphones and tablets, so keep your eyes glued to Android Authority for more detailed information.
