LG Announces Ice Cream Sandwich Upgrade Schedule, Begins In Q2 2012
LG has announced their schedule for Ice Cream Sandwich updates. Similar to Samsung and Sony Ericsson, only their 2011 models will get the official update to Android 4.0.
The rollout will begin in the second quarter of 2012 with the LG Optimus LTE, Prada phone by LG 3.0, LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus Sol, LG my Touch Q and LG Eclipse, followed in the third quarter by the LG Optimus 3D, LG Optimus Black, LG Optimus Big, LG Optimus Q2 and LG Optimus EX.
