Some good news for those of you who are on Vodafone, with a Samsung Galaxy S II.

The network operator has confirmed exactly when the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade, the latest version of Android, will be available.

On Tuesday, the company announced that the ICS upgrade would be available tomorrow, but it turns out that’s not the case. It will actually be available tomorrow, but only via Kies.

Vodafone announced on its support forum: “Unfortunately Samsung have told us this morning that they are unable to make the update available to you as planned.”

“The new plan from Samsung is that the update will be available via KIES tomorrow, 13th April, and via Over The Air update on Tuesday 17th April. If this moves at all, we’ll of course let you know.”

“I know a lot of you, like us, will be disappointed at this last minute change of plan and we continue to challenge Samsung to make this available to you as quickly as possible.”

So if you want an OTA update, you’ll be waiting until next week – it sounds a little like Vodafone is concerned this date might be pushed back again, too. Hopefully, that won’t happen.

If it does, there will probably be some quite irritated S II owners out there, given that some other networks have already deployed ICS to their handsets. Both Three and O2 had the update out last month.
