Samsung should start pushing out their Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update to their Galaxy S II (GT-i9100) models on March 10. Yes, we're that close. The update should be pushed out via Kiez, and should sport Samsung's TouchWiz UI.

The first and only version to get the ICS update (for now) is the global version of the Galaxy S II, the GT-i9100. According to Samsung's notes, we should expect Face Unlock, Android Beam, and data usage included. On top of this, multi-tasking and some apps will be "improved".

 

Samsung's site also states that because of "ICS OS feature", Flash and Bluetooth 3.0 HS won't be supported. The update should roll on to individual carriers, and their own GS II variants over time, after a fair amount of testing. I for one, cannot wait and I'm anxiously sitting here waiting to get my first lick of Google's Ice Cream Sandwich.
