Official ICS for Unlocked SGS2 GT-i9100 Rolling Out

The Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 was one of the most celebrated phones of 2011 and is still very highly regarded today, with over 10 million units sold. While many of the owners of this device have been happy, they’ve been eagerly awaiting the official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Samsung has been gradually rolling out these updates, but previously this has only gone to carrier-branded phones. Now Samsung UK lets us know that they have been working extremely hard at getting the update out to all of their devices, including those purchased unlocked:

Samsung UK has been working as hard as possible over the last few weeks to get Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) rolled out to all our Galaxy S II customers. We can confirm that ‘XEU/sim-free’ and all network upgrades are now complete except for Orange and T-Mobile which will follow as soon as possible, pending software testing and approvals. Thanks again for your patience.

This is certainly good news. If you would like to learn more, head over to the discussion thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
