Samsung is just about a week away from a huge announcement. Of course we’re expecting the Samsung Galaxy S III but we’ve also heard rumors of a new tablet. Perhaps the re-work of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be officially announced. Perhaps we will see a quad-core processor on it’s way back out to market.
One of the exciting things we’re expecting is that the Galaxy S III will be announced as the official phone of the Olympics. Now word on the interwebs is if you’re headed to the Olympics you may not want to take photos of the athletes with that shiny new camera, you could get into big trouble, but what better event to partner with on the worldwide launch of such an awesome device.
Today Samsung made their US customers very happy (and some a little sad) when they announced the list of their Android devices that will get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, even though this is an official list, remember it’s subject to change and timelines are rarely kept.
One of the things that’s interesting is that the Samsung Galaxy Note is showing for an Ice Cream Sandwich update on AT&T. We’ve heard through numerous sources, including Samsung that the Galaxy Note is getting some kind of “Premium Suite” and not full blown ICS. We’re not sure if this is different for the AT&T version or if AT&T is counting the “Premium Suite” as ICS. Stay tuned and find out. For now here’s the list:
Galaxy S II (SGH-i777)
Galaxy S II Skyrocket (SGH-i727)
Galaxy Note (SGH-i717)
Captivate Glide (SGH-i927)
Galaxy Tab 8.9 (SGH-i957)
Galaxy Tab 10.1 (SCH-i905)
Galaxy Tab 7.7 (SCH-i815)
Nexus S 4G (SPH-d720) ICS Update is Available!
Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (SPH-d710)
Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Wi-Fi (P6210)
Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi (P7310)
Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi (P7510)
We are in close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible devices are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months and will provide updates as we have additional details to share.
