Update: And ... it looks like the announcement has been taken down. Let's just keep our fingers crossed.
It looks like the Galaxy S II's Ice Cream Sandwich update may be imminent. Samsung has just announced on its official Philippines site that the long-awaited update will finally land this Saturday, Mar. 10. Today's news follows a Facebook post from Samsung Israel last week, which suggested a Mar. 15 launch in that country.
In the past day or so we've seen HTC update a couple of its leading 2011 devices to the latest version of Android -- ICS for the Sensation and Sensation XE is slowly trickling out, starting with users in Germany and Nordic countries.
So it's definitely ICS update season, and we look forward to seeing the new OS work its way onto more devices in the weeks ahead. The (international) Samsung Galaxy Note and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc series are due to be updated before the end of the month.
