Vodafone Oz serving ice cream sandwiches by the Galaxy

Still no Jelly Beans on the menu as Samsung "preparing update"

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Vodafone Australia will soon start to serve Ice Cream Sandwiches, Android-style, to owners of Samsung GALAXY Note handsets.

The upgrade process starts at 1:00PM AEST today (August 7th), at which time some lucky punters will have the chance to upgrade their handsets. Only those who acquired their Galaxy NOTE handset through the troubled carrier will be able to download the upgrade. Even that's no guarantee of success - the telco has warned of a staged process in which "...not everybody can update at the same time".

Weeks after declaring there's a problem with the next version of Android - 4.1 a.k.a Jelly Bean - that prevented it from making emergency calls on Samsung's Galaxy S, the company can only say owners of the handset should "stay tuned".

The news is better for owners of GALAXY Nexus handsets, as Vodafone says Samsung is "preparing update for submission to Vodafone for testing." ®
