Samsung announced just last night that the on-again-off-again Android 4.0 update would begin rolling out to the Galaxy S II in several European markets and Korea, and now we're hearing the date of March 19th for the UK variants of the device -- with carrier approval, of course.

Further dampening the excitement, Samsung also notes that "the availability and scheduling of the software update and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers' requirements." So, basically, they're saying that users in the UK may get the update beginning on March 19th, as long as that their carrier gives the nod. But, on the other hand, anything could happen that puts the update on halt. So, really, it's more of a non-announcement until the update actually starts rolling out and we know which carriers have approved the update (can't imagine any of them actually shooting it down, though).

As usual, there's no word as to when U.S. GSII owners can expect, well, anything to happen on the Android 4.0 front.
