Android Ice Cream Sandwich Slipped into Samsung Galaxy S II and LG Optimus 3D

November 19, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The brand new Android Ice Cream Sandwich has been weaving in and out of news for some time. Google had released the source code of their latest Android OS last week and all the developers are busy importing the codes onto their devices for checking the compatibility of the OS.

Now, the Alpha version of the Android 4.0 is available for the Samsung Galaxy S II and LG Optimus 3D. The Android 4.0 platform works smoothly in the devices but the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, audio, modem and quite a few other things are not functioning now.

This is to be expected as the alpha pack is what the devices carry. It is believed that all the Ice Cream Sandwich features will soon be seen in the handsets as the next versions are released.

Since the LG, Samsung, and other companies do not have their own custom drivers now, it would be better to wait for the release of the official version to upgrade your devices. From the video, it is clear that the Samsung Galaxy S II responds with no problems in the touchscreen and the swiping functions on it.

You can find the virtual Android keys on the screen along with the physical ones too. The Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for the handset is available here.

It will not be surprising to see more devices coming with the Alpha build of the Android 4.0 in the following days. Stay tuned to know more about the devices that shows compatibility with the new Ice Cream treat.
