Simon Stanford is the VP of Samsung Telecommunications and Networks UK and Ireland. Simon says (see what we did there?) that the last group of Samsung Galaxy S II owners to receive the Android 4.0 updatewill be those rocking a model that is SIM-free. The Korean based manufacturer says it has to wait for all of the carriers to finish sending out updates so that Samsung can test the "blanket" release of Android 4.0. Stanford said, "As an open-market
customer you will be on a variety of networks, so it's got to
work on whichever network you have chosen."
desperate to get [updates] out as fast as we can, there's no reason for
us not to. We don't like to have unhappy customers, it goes against
everything that we do. We do take it very seriously. It's communication
sometimes we need to work on - I accept that."-Simon Stanford
The Samsung executive admitted that his company could have done a better job with the update. Stanford agreed that communication between Samsung and its customers about the ICS update could have been handled better. Hopefully this will lead to a smoother process when the Samsung GALAXY Note gets updated to Android 4.0. While the update for the phablet has been delayed, Stanford says that once the process starts, rolling out the updates on different networks will be faster this time. source: Pocketlint
