I think this is worth celebrating as the first officially-released, skinned Ice Cream Sandwich update on a carrier-backed smartphone in the USA. AT&T never promised Q1. I’m not expecting an update to The Skyrocket until early Q3. The fact that the Vivid is already getting it is amazing. Four months is longer than we should have to wait but much shorter than we have had to wait for previous updates.
