Android News Update: Droid Incredible 4G LTE Launch, AT&T Galaxy S II ICS


Last week, we learned about a new potential launch date for HTC’s long-overdue Droid Incredible 4G LTE, as well saw AT&T getting ready to bring Ice Cream Sandwich to its users with the Samsung Galaxy S II. Some additional information has now arrived concerning both of these stories, giving us some dates to look forward towards.

It’s been seven weeks since the Droid Incredible 4G LTE was announced, and there’s still no official release date. Last week, we heard that July 5 might be when the handset finally sees the light of day, but there wasn’t wasn’t any evidence at the time to lend support to that rumor. Now we get a leaked screenshot to add some credence to that claim, backing-up the idea of a July 5 launch.

As for the Galaxy S II on AT&T, it looked like the update was in the process of being released last week, but then AT&T pulled back the reigns, explaining that it was still running tests in anticipation of the update’s release. This time, our update comes straight from the horse’s mouth, and the carrier has posted an update on its own site informing users that ICS will be officially available as of tomorrow. There won’t be any OTA distribution for this one, so you’ll need to use Kies to pull it down and install it.
