Sprint today announced that the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (what a mouthful!) is ready for its Android 4.0 update.

A post on the carrier's official message board provides the build number and basic details for the Ice Cream Sandwich update, indicating that it will run from July 12 to July 20. Unlike AT&T's recent update for the Galaxy S II, users will not be required to download or install Kies Upgrade Program.

Typically, carriers wait until the last minute before going public with update announcements, so I suspect that things have already gotten under way for some. Seeing as this will be released in stages, don't fret if your phone doesn't have a notification waiting for you until next week. In addition to the standard Android 4.0.4 update, Sprint advises that the S:D710.10S.FF18 build includes e-mail enhancements and Google security patches.

While some Ice Cream Sandwich is certainly welcome on a hot summer day, Android enthusiasts are already looking ahead, anticipating 4.1 Jelly Bean.
