Samsung details ICS update path for US carriers

Samsung details ICS update path for US carriers
The migration to Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest of Google’s Android platform, has been a long one. ICS was announced back in November, and for nearly six months carriers and phone makers have been working on delivering the update. 

Now, it’s arrived on some devices and Samsung has officially confirmed the update path for the rest of the devices available on US carriers.

Up until now, Samsung has confirmed that the following devices will get ICS. We’ve broken them down by carrier and listed the model number for absolute clarity:

on AT&T: 

on Sprint:

on Verizon:

on T-Mobile:

So there you have it - the full list of Samsung devices about to get ICS. You can hit the source link below to voice your (dis)satisfaction with Samsung’s plans, but in the meantime you’d still need to wait for a couple of more days until you get the updates.

Dude how can anyone control carrier bloat ware? That is not our fault. The carrier does what the carrier does. What do you use two cans & a string? I have Verizon, their service is immaculate. Sure I need to deal with some bloat but I root & my device has been clean of bloat ware for as long as I have had my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Basically your comment is the text book definition of TROLLING! Or just plain stupidity, you take your pick!

You could buy an unlocked phone that's not carrier branded, and then just take it to the provider of your choice. It gets pretty pricey though for the price of the phone

"You'd still need to wait for a couple more days" does this mean we get it this week? There's no date listed.

The Nexus S isn't on AT&T I don't think. I thought that was a Sprint phone only. Anyways... I downloaded the official leaked AT&T version of the GS2 Skyrockets 4.0.3 version and installed it on my stock phone. I'm just wondering if anything will change when the roll the update out officially. And if I downloaded a final, official build, why are they not releasing this update when it's completely ready to go.
