Bob, will existing SII users be able to update or will it only be available to new purchases?

As I understand it, it will be offered as an OTA update. Either that or you'll be able to connect it to your machine, run Kies and install it. I knew it was coming which is why I held off rooting my phone TBH, I just didn't know when it would be coming (until now).

Hot Chocolate was better.
The update may be good as long as the apps you want get updated as well.
With the android markets update, version 2.1 and below handsets are already being made to look outdated which is not exactly a great advertisement for android.

Further reading seems to suggest that any upgrade for branded phones will be down to when the supplier (T-Mobile in my case) are ready to release it.
You can do the upgrade yourself if you root the phone first but that could void any warranty. Think I can wait Wink
