LG Android devices will receive 4.0 in 2012
Not to be outdone by the likes of Samsung and HTC, LG Mobile announced yesterday on its official Facebook page that its Android phones would also be receiving Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
The Seoul-based electronics manufacturer has been
taking a beating in the smartphone market
, despite its
Optimus line of Android devices
But it hasn't given up on Android, as evidenced by yesterdays announcement of a "global upgrade" for its range of devices, beginning in the second quarter of 2012 with the LG Optimus LTE, Prada phone by LG 3.0, Optimus 2X, Optimus Sol, my Touch Q, and the LG Eclipse.
The LG Optimus 3D, Optimus Black, Optimus Big, Optimus Q2, and Optimus EX will also receive Ice Cream Sandwich, but not until Q3 2012.
"LG will be taking all possible measure to offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner. The exact start dates can vary by market, as each country can have different requirements, depending on the carrier and the smartphone model," the company said on its Facebook page.
While the news would appear to be welcome for Optimus users, the comments on the Facebook post have been less than glowing. "[G]et off your ass LG... if hackers can get a basic version working in less then 2 days.. you really should work harder," wrote one commenter.
"This is the worst Christmas gift you could give us :( What the hell takes you 6 months? You write Android from scratch again? No I know what it is. It's that crazy "launcher" you put on the well designed ICS one," wrote another.

It'll be at least 6 months to a year before we start seeing how all that plays out with new phones, so no, there's nothing to rethink there. It may very well have an influence on my future purchases, but that's 2 years down the road now.
