I suppose that’s exactly what Samsung was thinking after releasing a few PowerPoint slides walking European Galaxy S II users through the Android 4.0 update process for their GT-I9100’s.

This will be exactly what GSII users in the states can expect once our carriers finally get around to updating our devices to the TouchWiz’d Ice Cream Sandwich.
