LG initially announces plans to release Android 4.0 ICS to the Optimus line of devices

LG has officially announced their plans in pushing the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to a number of their Optimus line of devices. LG, on their Facebook page, announced that the LG Optimus 2X, Optimus Black, Optimus 3D, and the Optimus LTE are the Optimus-es that are expected to get the update. Apparently, the phone maker is still testing the OS on these phones and the list might change when LG actually pushes the updates. By December of this year, LG is scheduled to push the Android 4.0 updates to these devices, if they don't pose a problem with the platform. If that happens, LG is set to be the world's first phone manufacturer to update their existing phones to the latest available version of Android. Cheers! LG owners!

In a more personal note, LG is doing a great job here. They were late with the Gingerbread update but they are surely making a great "come back" with this announcement. Hopefully, nothing goes bad or wrong with their December schedule. Other OEMs are scheduled to push Android 4.0 to their own devices by next year, so LG is ahead this time and I am really crossing my fingers this will be realized.
