LG Spectrum is ready for Android 4.0, all that is required is 'OK' from Verizon
An LG employee on a support forum page revealed that the Android 4.0 update could be sent out to owners of the LG Spectrum at any time, and that all that is needed is the high sign from Verizon. According to the employee, the update should be very close to being released. In late May, an Android 4.0 ROM  was making the rounds, so we know that the idea that all that is required is a green light from Big Red is not far fetched.

Sporting a 4.5 inch True HD (no Pentile display)  720p screen with a high pixel density of 326ppi, the LG Spectrum has a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor under the hood. 1GB of RAM is aboard while only 4GB of native memory is on board. Still, the storage can be expanded with the 32GB capacity microSD slot. An 8MP camera is on back, capturing video at 1080p while the 1.3MP front-facing shooter takes self portraits and enables video chat. An 1830mAh battery powers the device and right now, Android 2.3 is installed. Let's not forget the LTE connectivity.

The LG Spectrum is available from Verizon for $99.99 with a signed 2-year act. Which reminds us, just where is that green light, Verizon?

I think the spectrum would be amazing with ICS Goodness. I love that device but LG's Skin is so damn heavy.

You can pick up an LG spectrum NEW off ebay for $250, I was considering it to play with, but the skin is holding me back too..

The new LG optimus 3.0 skin is nice. Almost stock ICS looking-ish and every icon can be customized.

I can not wait. This should have been out over a month ago. What is Big Red waiting for?

The one good thing about apple is the fact that they control their updates. Android isn't really slow on updates, carriers are.

Actually the manufacturers are slow as well. Especially Motorola and Samsung.
