We have told you why you need Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), but now we want to keep you up to date on if/when you will get ICS on your Android handset or tablet. This is the most up to date information we have available straight from the phone/tablet manufacturers, and will we be continually updating this post when new information comes out. If you do not see your phone on this list and don’t currently have Android 4.0 on your phone that means you most likely won’t be getting updated. It should be noted that Google is expected to announce the latest version of Android at Google I/O at the end of June.
