There’s some good news with TELUS’ upgrade schedule: it keep getting smaller, which means they are following through on their promises to upgrade devices to the latest OS. The newest schedule to be released is dated June 28th reveals a few changes, but nothing yet on Jelly Bean. Here’s where everything stands:

– HTC Desire HD upgrade to OS 4.0 ICS “Expected in market date” July 17th (was July 25th)
– LG Optimus LTE upgrade to OS 4.0 ICS “Expected in market date” August 7th (was Mid July)
– Samsung Galaxy Note OS 4.0 “Expected in market date” is Late July (was July 13th)
– Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 OS 4.0 “Expected in market date” is August
– Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 OS 4.0 “Expected in market date” is August

    I really appreciate Telus’ committment to transparency for its software updates much more than Roger’s “No Comment” or Bell’s random internal leaks. Putting this information on your public website and updating every few weeks is a great example of keeping your customers in the loop. Hopefully that transparency is something that can grow on the industry as a whole.

    Great the updates are coming but 8 months after ics is released? I’m with telus and I didn’t think they it any bloat ware on their phones.

    As a Rogers customer seeing something like this from one of their competitors just drives me nuts.

    It would be so easy for them to do something similar, yet there is virtually zero chance of it happening.

    Doing so would help restore a little goodwill between the company and it’s customers, something it has little of these days.

    So far it’s an opportunity missed- very disappointing.

    We don’t want 4.0 we want 4.1

    Why do you say “Apple No updates planed” Did you forget iOS 6 coming in the fall.

    I’m running Mango on my Optimus 7 and Telus has indicated it would be updated on June 20th. Today is July 3rd and I haven’t seen the update yet, so take the update schedule with a hugh grain of salt!

    Hey Andy,
    Thank you for note, your correct Microsoft does state that updates are released in stages. However, Telus is being more specific by stating:
    “Notifications and updates: LG
    Optimus™ 7: As of June 2012,
    software version 7.10.8773.98 is
    available for the LG Optimus 7″.

    While I completely understand and agree with the Microsoft roll-out strategy, I completely disagree with the Telus communication strategy. Simply put, if the update isn’t actually available until July then don’t indicate on the phone’s support page the update will be available in June. Least they could do is revise the .8773 release date on their site so users (like me) expectations aligns with the published roll out date – because right now, it doesn’t!
    Cheers
