LG details its Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade plans

LG logoLG unwrapped more details about its Ice Cream Sandwich software upgrade schedule for existing LG Android smartphones.

The news, which popped up today on LG's Facebook page, confirms much of what we already knew--that Optimus phones like the Optimus LTE and Optimus Black (known in the US as AT&T's Nitro HD and Sprint's LG Marquee, respectively) will indeed receive the latest Android operating system in 2012.

More specifically, the global updates will begin in the second quarter of the year for the LG Optimus LTE, Prada phone by LG 3.0, Optimus 2X, Optimus Sol, my Touch Q, and the Eclipse.

The third quarter will see Ice Cream Sandwich land on the LG Optimus 3D, Optimus Black, Optimus Big, Optimus Q2, and the Optimus EX.

Updates present a huge customer challenge for the manufacturers and carriers; pressure is high to release stable software quickly and smoothly.

While the second wave of LG's Android owners will surely chafe at having to wait months before receiving their Android 4.0 update, sharing plans usually helps keep the angry pitch fork-bearing populace at bay just a while longer.
