LG confirms it will update the Optimus 2X and others to Android Ice Cream Sandwich
LG issued a rebuttal on its Facebook page, of the rumors that it will leave the first phone with dual-core chipset, the LG Optimus 2X, out in the cold regarding Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The ICS update is being planned for testing right now on the Optimus 2X, and will be probed for the other high-end smartphones in LG's portfolio, the company said.

"LG firmly denies the rumours that claim LG will not be providing the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS update for the LG Optimus 2X. These rumours are NOT true. LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update for the LG Optimus 2X as well as other LG high-end smartphones. Detailed information on the ICS OS update schedule for specific models will be announced, once the ICS OS is publicly released by Google. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG."

Considering that the Gingerbread update is just rolling to the handset, LG might have as well gone directly to ICS with the Optimus 2X and some of its other Android phones.

How you take this news depends on how charitable you want to be toward LG. "LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update" could be taken to mean they're planning the update but are nowhere near starting work on it. They could be planning the update for Q4 2012.

Yeah yeah yeah, LG sucks, and Sammy and Apple are perfect and spit-shining flawless. Haters!

LG did the same thing after the Optimus came out, saying that it wasnt powerful enough for Gingerbread so they weren't gonna port it, then Google corrected them and they changed their mind and said they would bring it. Then, they dragged their feet for 10 months or so before they brought it. I expect a similar outcome here.
