The main concern is, they have promised this before. Yes, this is a new year, new time, and probably now they have the full use of staff to perform the tests and do the roll out. But, having tried to do the update a few times since the tweet, so far I have nothing.
As a result, we have sadly lost a lot of respect for O2 in the process. All other providers have had the update roll out about two weeks prior to Christmas. This means that O2 customers are around a month late. It also means that we shall seriously be considering the Google branded android phones in the future, and probably avoid any other make and model.

We have a reply from +O2 in the UK in the comments section:
I have just posted it as a picture so people can see it. Sadly, this is once again, another show of the varying comments coming from the O2 social media team. Who knows when I’ll get the update, if ever!

Further response from O2 now. Sadly, it is just another one of a series of contrasting answers from various people from O2.
Anyway, keep checking on the provided link, though going through 24 pages of comments is not really going to be fun.

My friend from Twitter, Keiran actually informed me that his mother, who actually owns an HTC ONE S, has already had the update from O2 on Xmas day. He has kindly allowed me to publish the following images from his mother’s HTC ONE S:
So far, I have had nothing, but I’ll keep you posted if I get the update!
And so the saga ends. I have successfully received the update to my HTC ONE X. In the coming days I shall be posting my impressions from the new update.
Thanks for all the update and reading and leaving your comments. From all the Twitter comments I am getting, I am seeing a lot of people are also receiving it now.
