    Great idea for an article - I've needed information like this for a while now.

    I spoke to Telstra Support yesterday regarding Galaxy Note updates, and their best estimate was September. Hopefully they stick true to 27 August instead!

    Anyone else think the picture of the ice-cream sandwich in front of the mouth kinda looks gross?

    Galaxy S for Vodafone should be the Nexus S #corrections

    Haha, seriously! Buy an iPhone or iPad and get your OS update when it's released.

    yeah thanks for the article. I am waiting for the ice cream sandwich for my HTC incredible s too from optus.

    Obviously I don't grasp the complexities of the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Nexus. And I'm glad I don't have a Telstra or Optus Nexus so I don't have to.
    I went to Jelly Bean by using the Google image after a very simple unlock and root on my international Nexus. I'm no expert but really if you can read a few paragraphs on XDA it will take less than twenty minutes.
