Yes Samsung started updating many of its devices to ICS around the world, but what about us here in the States? For the most mart, we had an idea of which existing Samsung devices here in the U.S. would get the coveted ICS update (see exhibit A), though Samsung felt it was finally necessary to give a thorough breakdown for which of its devices would be getting the update. As it stands, specific AT&T, Verizon or Sprint-branded variations of both the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab are slated for the anticipated update. In addition, the Galaxy Note is all set for the Android 4.0 update, though again– you probably knew that already. There’s one thing to note though, T-Mobile is missing from the list, why? Well, Sammy provides this response:
“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”.
So there you have it folks. Be sure to keep in mind that Sammy stops just short of saying when exactly the updates will arrive for the devices, so it may be a while before it becomes a reality. Let’s just hope it’s not too much longer of a wait before we see updated software to those devices.
