    Bell Canada has already got one Ice Cream Sandwich phone in its arsenal, and of course it is the Galaxy Nexus. Well it looks as though Bell is preparing to add four more devices to their Android 4.0 lineup in 2012. The HTC Sensation, HTC Raider, Samsung Galaxy S II and LG Optimus LTE have surfaced in a leaked internal document obtained by our friends over at Mobile Syrup. It is obviously stated these are estimated release dates and we can only hope they are accurate as many Bell subscribers are going to be dying to upgrade their Gingerbread phones to that tasty ICS.

    The following Android phones to receive Android 4.0 in 2012:

    HTC Sensation: February 2012
    HTC Raider: March 2012
    Samsung Galaxy S II: April 2012
    LG Optimus LTE: To Be determined
    This is encouraging news for Bell customers! Hopefully we get further detail soon.

    Does anyone know if this is true or not? April is almost over and I have been scowering the internet in search of more answers or hints at this update being released. I currently have 2.3.6 installed on my rooted GS2 and want to confirm kies will get this update before i return my phone to stock to update to ICS lol.

    So far the only good thing I see about it is the voice to text action. It still has the gingerbread feel and look. not complete ice cream sandwich, kind of disappointed. you are not able to use slide, pin the other unlocking code security feature, it just doesnt work. so far thats all i have found....it you press the version a few times a new picture of android pops up. yay lol

    Would be interested in your experience after a few days re: battery life. Many ICS upgrade experiences seem to be negative.

    Does this explain why nothing happens when I click on the orange Firmware Update button in Kies? :confused:

    No it does not...even with a fully charged battery, it will not download. It's like I'm not pressing the button (even though I obviously am).

    Kind of a disappointment really... when I first booted the phone I thought it had never updated lol. Battery life is slightly better... but still sucks. Tried using JD but it causes the phone to reboot itself about 6 times a day lol. Since I want the ICS that the nexus has i'm downloading Resurrection Remix ROM as we speak lol
