Being second in line to carrier branded versions of a device isn't really what you expect when you buy unlocked. But, in the UK those that opted to stump up their hard earned for an unlocked Galaxy S II have been in that very situation. All that can be put to one side finally, as Samsung have today started to push out the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the device.
As ever, you'll be seeing the Touchwiz-ified version of ICS, but all the important bits are there underneath. The update isn't being pushed out OTA either, instead you'll have to download it via the Kies desktop application. But, it's here, and it's ICS. Have at it folks. Maybe things will be different when it comes to the Galaxy S III.
