When is the exclusive deal with Vodafone over? And will that mean future updates by Huwaei will have now Vodafone apps in them. I hope it will mean whatever ICS update they release, they re-release a clean version so customers from other companies will be able to download a copy in case they require to reinstall the rom. I assume they will have ICS pre-installed for the o2, orange, virgin customers....

I think it launched around April 15th, with 3 months exclusive to vodafone. In theory it should be another week until that is over and everyone else can start selling.

So in theory, the Ics update could be next week when vodofones exclusive ends.

Would've expected to see pre order on other networks or maybe coming soon notes, maybe they've extended it. Unless it's sold sim free we wouldn't see a clean version anyway just several operator versions. I doubt ICS would be on the phones out of the box, but it's possible I guess.

I don't see any mention of ICS for G300 on vodafone, unless i missed it, so you would think Huawei have to wait until the deal ends then ICS will be available form Huawei without any vodafone content.

Rest assured it will have Voda's grubby little fingers all over it. I used SUS to update my unlocked Neo, but because it was originally from Vodafone I got to experience their ultra useful additions. Luckily most of it was either uninstallable or could be disabled. Vodafone won't miss a chance to provide their "enhancements to the user experience".

My G300 has been in repairs for nearly 3 weeks, I know taking the right piss, anyway, I phoned up kicking off, and the end result is they are sending me a brand new one wednesday ( yes perfect wednesday) It is coming straight from Huawei, which is odd. Basically vodafone are saying that because I have been waiting over 2 weeks, they are sending me a new one, but it has to come from Huawei themselves, I wonder, will it come updated to ICS :D

If it does, I will make it known, with the rom dump.

perhaps more importantly, will it be a vanilla android rather than a unicom/vodafone branded one, maybe without the locked bootloader.

What difference does bloat make? Just remoce it?

I want OpenGL. That's all that's stopping me jumping :)
