Android 4.0 finally coming March 15 to Galaxy S II users

If you are the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone and have been counting the days until the Android 4.0 update was available for your device; the wait is almost over. Rumors pegging March as being the launch date have circulated for a while, and now we have official confirmation. 
Samsung Israel posted on its Facebook page that it expects the Ice Cream Sandwich update to start rolling out on handsets in Israel on March 15. The post gives no indication of when the update might be expected in other countries. The update will presumably work on all unlocked international versions of the smartphone.

It is fantastic that faithful Samsung customers only had to wait 5 months to receive a software update for their new phone model.

A great selling point for Android.

that's hilarious coming from a foaming at the mouth apple fanatic who assuming he owns a mac has to PAY for what amounts to service packs. (Which windows sells you for.... oh wait, free).

So if OS X upgrades are the same as a Windows Service Packs then version 10.7 must be exactly the same as version 10.1 except with a bunch of bug fixes.

Hokay then...

That's right! Don't any of you people know--Apple has no bugs.

Except that they aren't mere service packs. I've upgraded Microsoft operating systems since MS-DOS 4.0 (WAY back in the day) and OS X only since 10.2 about ten years ago. Not only are the OS X upgrades substantial, in certain cases like the moves from 10.3 to 10.4 and 10.4 to 10.5, they were even bigger than the move from XP to Vista. They're certainly much bigger than the slight tweak that was Vista to Windows 7 (I suppose that parallels with the 10.6 upgrade, except that cost 5-10x as much).

Saying that OS X upgrades amount to Windows service packs only proves that you lack any real technical knowledge.
