Now that Android OS 4.0 (ice cream sandwich) has been announced for release in November 2011, does anyone know if the Samsung Galaxy S ll, Epic 4G Touch will support this new OS? If so, will the Sprint network be offering this an an upgrade at a later date?

I am very interested in this phone and I want to stay with Sprint, but with Android 4.0 coming out so soon I want to know if this device is future-proof and will run this new OS.

Anyone know?

Thanks.

CNET News Reporter Marguerite Reardon does a column for them called Ask Maggie. She recently answered the question, "Will my Android get Ice Cream Sandwich?" In it, she answers your question:


"Here's a quick synopsis of how I think the major Android manufacturers will handle the Ice Cream Sandwich update:

Samsung

Given that the first phone to be released with Ice Cream Sandwich is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, my guess is that several of the more recently launched Samsung phones will also get the Ice Cream Sandwich update, including the entire line of Nexus S phones on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile USA. I also think the Samsung Galaxy S II phones that were just released this fall will also get the Ice Cream Sandwich update."

Hello- Samsung has guaranteed that the GSII phones will all receive ICS, you can read their statement on the 4.0 update by typing it into Google. Hope this keeps you with Sprint!! :-)
