Samsung Galaxy Note Gets Ice Cream Sandwich Update

    May 10, 2012

If you’re an owner of Samsung’s Galaxy Note phone (tablet?) who’s been eagerly awaiting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it looks like today is your lucky day. It looks like Samsung has started rolling out the update globally. It began in Europe this morning and should proceed around the globe throughout the day.

In addition to the standard upgrades that come with Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy Note-specific version adds a few new features to the tablet (phone?). It includes new versions of S Memo, S Note, and other apps that make use of the Galaxy Note’s stylus S-Pen.

The folks over at Android Geeks got their hands on the new update and have posted a video of Ice Cream Sandwich in action on their Galaxy Note phablet (??):

Those of you with an unlocked Galaxy Note can download the update manually from the device’s settings. Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait until you get the notification that the update is ready.

Do you have Ice Cream Sandwich on your Galaxy Note yet? If so, what do you think of it? Was it worth the wait? Let us know in the comments.
