    Samsung just shared their list of devices for each U.S. carrier which are scheduled to receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update eventually. The only carrier that they didn't have any details about was T-Mobile, but they indicated that they are in communication with them and will share more information later. Here's the breakdown:

    AT&T:
    • Galaxy S II (SGH-i777)
    • Galaxy S II Skyrocket (SGH-i727)
    • Galaxy Note (SGH-i717)
    • Captivate Glide (SGH-i927)
    • Nexus S (SGH-i9020A)
    • Galaxy Tab 8.9 (SGH-i957)
    Sprint:
    • Nexus S 4G (SPH-d720) ICS Update is Available!
    • Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (SPH-d710)
    Verizon:
    • Galaxy Tab 10.1 (SCH-i905)
    • Galaxy Tab 7.7 (SCH-i815)
    Wi-Fi:
    • Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Wi-Fi (P6210)
    • Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi (P7310)
    • Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi (P7510)
    T-Mobile:
    "We are in close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible devices are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months and will provide updates as we have additional details to share."

    Sound off if your device's "name was called."

    Samsung really does take the best care of its customers when it comes to updates.

    I still have no idea why they wouldn't upgrade the Droid Charge to ICS.

    From what I understand, Charge owners are pissed at Samsung because of this.

    So none of the Samsung phones on vzw getting ICS. No stratosphere, no charge, no nothing.

    Kind of lame considering HTC is bringing ICS to the Thunderbolt and Incredible 2.

    I wonder if this is Samsung's fault or if it has something to do with Verizon's relationship with Samsung...

    At this point I'm picking Samsung as the reason. The phones they've listed all have dual core CPUs, with the exception of the NEXUS S. Which is an exception anyways cause it's a NEXUS.

    It's possible they've decided that only dual core phones are getting ICS.

    Seems like they forgot about us Charge owners. They just give us a half-assed update, which cut the start up time in half probably which was pretty cool, but that's about it.

    At least you got an update. The stratosphere came out only a month or two before ICS was available, even closer than the charge, and the phone hasn't received one update to deal with any of the bugs, and there are quite a few that I consider major.

    At this point I'd settle for samsung just releasing the source for their RIL or w/e we need to properly figure it out and work with it. At the very least they could make it possible for the rom developers to produce ICS roms and AOSP roms.

    That's why I only buy flagship phones which tend to get more support.
