T-Mobile just announced via Twitter that its iteration of the Galaxy S II will be getting the Android 4.0 bump come June 11th.

No update doc is yet available on T-Mobile's website illustrating the changes, but one should be coming sooner rather than later.

Finally, after a bajillion years of waiting, the first Android tablet is finally getting its very own update to Android 4.0, finally. Finally. As some of you may recall, the WiFi model received an ICS update months ago, but the 3G/4G version, which has been plagued with problems since launch, including lack of advertised flash support and an actual 4G modem, is only just now set to get the OTA update.

  • Email messages will display properly when the text size is set to large.

Samsung-Conquer-4G-01

Sprint just updated its support docs for the Samsung Conquer 4G with details of a new OTA update set to begin rolling out at any moment. It's a rather small and nondescript update that just brings a couple of fixes and enhancements:

Enhancements/Fixes:

  • 4G Modem Update - not customer impacting 
  • Lock screen changes - swipe in any direction to unlock

Like I said, it's minor. The update should begin rolling out today or tomorrow and will complete its rollout process within ten days.

The title should make this one obvious. HTC has published a brand-new list of its devices to get Android 4.0, but the difference between this one and previous lists is the level of detail. Most phones have a target OTA deployment range of 2 months, significantly more precise than the typical "quarterly" guestimates we see manufacturers publish generally. Here's the list:

DROID Incredible 2 by HTC: To be determined (by the end of August)

HTC Amaze 4G: May-June

HTC Desire S: June-July

HTC Desire HD: July-August

HTC EVO 3D: June-July

HTC EVO 4G+: May-June

HTC EVO Design 4G: June-July

HTC Incredible S: June-July

HTC Sensation: March-June

HTC Sensation 4G: March-June

HTC Sensation XE: March-June

HTC Sensation XL: April-Jun

HTC Rezound: June-July

HTC Rhyme: June-July

HTC Thunderbolt: July-August

HTC Velocity 4G: March-June

HTC Vivid: March-June

A few notable absentees include the Inspire 4G (which is a Desire HD variant), EVO 4G, EVO Shift 4G, myTouch 4G, Status, and Wildfire S - though most of those weren't expected to get the update in the first place.

perfection-tf300

Looks like an OTA update started making its way to the ASUS Transformer Pad 300 over the weekend that brings a handful of enhancements to the device, including Face Unlock, battery usage details (finally!), and a considerable boost in performance.

What do I mean by "considerable boost in performance," exactly? To put it mildly, the TF300 had a bit of... lag when too many things were running at one time, but it suffered the worst hit when app updates were installing from the Play Store.

Motorola has been pretty transparent about the update process to Ice Cream Sandwich, keeping users in the loop regarding when updates for newer devices should be available. In that light, It just posted an updated to its Upgrade News page with a whole slew of new information, including which devices should see ICS before the end of Q2:

2012-05-18_14h28_02

Considering it's the only one in the "testing" phase, I wouldn't be surprised if we see the Verizon XOOM get its update first, with the Droid RAZR/MAXX twins following after that.
