The Samsung Nexus S 4G isn't the only Sprint phone to tuck into an Ice Cream Sandwich update .

Today, Sprint announced on its Web site that it's readying over-the-air ICS updates for Android smartphones that include the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, among others.

Sprint has promised to "begin to roll out Google's latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, to our customers in 2012," but isn't sharing its timetable or the complete list of handsets it'll support. With more than half a year to go before 2012's close, Sprint's guidance remains vague.

For now, Sprint customers with Android phones will have to continue playing the waiting game and hope that Sprint will spoon out more details sooner rather than later.
