Samsung Galaxy S II to get ICS update (pulled)

Looks like we jumped the gun here--Samsung's twitter account has tweeted that the date is wrong. Alas.

Good news everyone! Well, everyone who is using a Samsung Galaxy S II that is. The promised update to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) OS will be available tomorrow (March 10). You will be able get ICS via an OTA update or through Samsung's KIES 2.0.

The patch notes indicate that there are some caveats to take note of, however. Phone book data, SMS messages and your pictures will not be wiped, but it looks like app settings may be erased. Samsung recommends that you backup your phone through KIES before upgrading (which you should do anyway).

Visit the Samsung Web site for more information. Do note that the patch notes seems aren't written in perfect English and may be tricky to decipher.
