Um, I already said that, in my reply to D-U-R-X about the G number.....
Have you not noticed, that phone networks DO NOT all get the new stuff at once??
first its 3..
then the rest of the much smaller companies...
ages ago, when 3 got it ( a new phone or upgrade), it was more than a YEAR until it was available on Orange..
PLEASE do a search on orange ICS, you will find there are many promised dates, and many broken 'promises'!!!
there is NO mention of orange in my linked article... I hope you are not relying on a very vague reference on another article that page links to..
Only good news I have found, is some programmers are making a version of Nova for android 2.1 up..
