Everything should be sorted by next Tuesday.
If you're running a Galaxy S II on Vodafone's network you likely don't need us to tell you that there's been a delay in rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich to users. The network confirmed earlier this week that it would be rolling out ICS to the Galaxy S II-toting masses on 12 April, but that was yesterday, and no doubt users have noticed a distinct lack of ICS. The company has since confirmed a delay that will see the OTA roll-out pushed to 17 April.
According to a statement printed by Pocket-Lint, Vodafone is blaming the delay on Samsung, claiming that the manufacturer is unable make the update available as planned. The good news is that those willing to update via Kies (as opposed to waiting for notification of an OTA update to arrive on their handset) will be able to do so from today, 13 April. And you thought Friday the 13th was unlucky!
Check out the full statement from Vodafone below:
Unfortunately Samsung have told us this morning that they are unable to make the update available to you as planned.
The new plan from Samsung is that the update will be available via KIES tomorrow, 13 April, and via Over The Air update on Tuesday 17 April. If this moves at all, we’ll of course let you know.
I know a lot of you, like us, will be disappointed at this last-minute change of plan and we continue to challenge Samsung to make this available to you as quickly as possible."
