No Ice Cream Sandwich for LG Optimus 2X


Recent sources have revealed that the LG Optimus 2x will NOT be getting the Ice Cream Sandwich update. LG have confirmed they won’t put Ice Cream Sandwich on the Tegra 2 Optimus 2X. LG were clearly listed on the page showing who had signed up, the Optimus 2X has hardware which is equivalent to most of the Honeycomb tablets which will receive updates, and it’s well within the 18 month time frame stated at Google’s IO.

This will have surely hurt Android users on the Optimus 2x. Confusion follows as Google look untrustworthy for saying there was an upgrade guarantee, LG looks untrustworthy for not providing an upgrade to a phone which appears to be clearly capable of supporting it, and a whole bunch of users who saw the 2X advertised as a dual core ‘phone of the future will now be stuck on an out of date OS.

Android has surely let us down and this would have in no way lead to smiles among LG Optimus users !! Wonder what phones next would be cancelled off from Ice Cream Sandwich’s update list.
