    Saw this yesterday on the BBC and was initially very pleased until I got to the line "how quickly owners can update their device depends on their network operator and whether they have unlocked their phone. Some operators may take a long time to push the software out to customers' devices."

    I've got a Galaxy S2 on an Orange contract. Could anyone hazard a guess at how long I'll be waiting for the update, if it comes at all?

    Nope, but it does have an improved design and better software functionality/speed (from what I've seen).

    You know, if Google charged to update the OS, a bit like how Windows charge for the latest version, I think people would be a lot happier with their devices. It's not a closed system so it means they can't update the Apple way (ie. they can't stop networks and manufacturers interfering), nor can they charge since it's open and free to all, but it's just a thought. Free updates don't generate any income for manufacturers or networks, hence they take their sweet time!

    Do you know if the Google Nexus S is getting the upgrade then? Not sure what operating system it is now. Gingerbread maybe.

    I have a SGS2, was looking forward to this update but tbh I dont see nearly any improvement at all really. Its essentially Gingerbread with that task manager thing, an improved settings menu and for some bizarre reason they took off the icons in menus (like when you press menu button at home screen) and replaced it with text - the point? im not sure. For an upgrade from 2.3.6 to 4.0.3 there is very little in this.
