A few weeks ago TELUS created a online document that showed where various handsets stand of receiving the latest OS update. It’s a great idea, shows openness, as they were probably getting hammered by customers asking when their device will be updated. There might be a trend evolving as the first document was dated May 3rd and now a new doc has been uploaded that’s dated May 17th – so we could see TELUS giving updates every 2-weeks.
There has been some important updates to several devices: The “Expected in market date” for the Galaxy SII X to receive Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is June 12th, was previously “Early June.” The Samsung Galaxy Note bump to ICS changes from Early June to Late June, plus the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 upgrade to 4.01 is now Late July. In addition, the Xperia Ray 4.0 upgrade to 4.0 shifts from a firm June 11th to “Late June.” As for other platforms, the only new device addition is the Optimus 7 which should be getting some sort of update, possibly the battery fix or Tango, on June 6th.
