    I think this pretty much nails down where the issue for updates comes from. The carrier.

    Unbranded gets update with in months. Every one else tack another 6+ on. Not hard to see it is the carriers holding it up.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread & checking for an OTA update, not a fan of the Kies software at all so that'll be a last resort

    For the International variant, yes, it should be, unless you have a carrier branded one, for which you either wait (who knows how long) or just flash a stock unbranded firmware. For the latter case, just wait for the firmware to be available on SamMobile.

    Me! I don't know why I want it, and I'm sure I don't need it, but that's not going to stop me :)

    Does anyone know whether JB fixes the MTP/ OSX incompatability issue?

    I had an international unbranded S2 and the updates were released by region. I waited about a month an a half for ICS from the official release date. My region was XEF which is France. So Samsung will probably push it out the same way. From what I can remember some UK regions got it first.

    With Sprint there is no telling. Hopefully by the end of the year. I'm hoping for sometime around Thanksgiving. I just hope Sprint does not make us wait pass the end of the year.

    You can download the offline content for voice recognition

    I can't find the setting right now, but there's also a flashable zip you can flash if youre rooted. Check what's available for your device.

    I'm on a generic handset like my s2 was. The generic s2 got ics after some of the carriers which was mad but it wad actually 3 that got it first in the uk if I remember correctly.

    Yep. By region, in batches. So there will be several released scheduled for UK or XX (however Samsung manage it).
