LG Optimus 3D, Optimus Black and Optimus LTE all in line for Ice Cream Sandwich

LG Optimus 3D, Optimus Black and Optimus LTE all in line for Ice Cream Sandwich
In addition to the LG Optimus 2X, the company announced on Facebook is is planning to upgrade to Android Ice Cream Sandwich the LG Optimus 3D, Optimus Black and Optimus LTE as well, and we hope their US versions will follow suit.

All of these handsets held something "first" in their description when they launched this year, so it's only fair they will be given the ICS treatment by LG. The Optimus 2X was the first dual-core handset, the Optimus 3D the first with a parallax barrier screen and dual-channel memory, the Optimus Black held the "brightest screen" title for a while with its 700 nits, and the LG Optimus LTE was the first handset to be announced with an HD display and 4G LTE connectivity.

These "firsts" didn't translate into big sales for LG this year, but it takes time to bend customer perceptions, and quick upgrades to the newest version of Android is just what the doctors order in these circumstances. Good news is that other LG handsets might also get the ICS update after a functionality review, and the update schedule will be up in December so each owner knows when to expect the goods. Here's the full release:

Does this mean that the upcoming LG Nitro HD for AT&T we got a picture of recently will get an ICS update later on, or come directly with the latest Android onboard? December 1 might tell.

Smart move by LG, for I was deferring my mates to buy an LG phone due to poor software support recently, I think I was wrong. . . Kudos! to LG this time. . .

That would be hilarious. That is the onething that bugs me,the time of when they release it. This Year they snatched the late update crown from Sony Ericsson. LOL

I wouldn't have thought the Optimus Black had good enough hardware. I didn't think its 1GHz OMAP was fast enough graphically.

What's the processor in the SE Xperia Ray? All I know is it's also a 1GHz single core. I don't know what kind. But I guess if the Ray is going to be upgraded to ICS, and also the OB, maybe ICS can actually run fine on 1GHz single cores.
