Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Ice Cream Sandwich Update Rolls Out in U.S.
While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Ice Cream Sandwich update has already rolled out in some regions in the world, owners of the Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 are starting to see the update roll out today.
We’ve received word from several Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners here in the U.S. who say that the update has rolled out for their device today. There are also numerous reports corroborating what we’re hearing from Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners so it’s safe to assume that a massive roll out is under way for Samsung’s 10.1-inch tablet.
Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for those on Verizon with the 4G LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. This roll out only appears to be for the Wi-Fi only model. That means that owners of the 4G LTE Galaxy Tab 10.1 are going to have to wait for their upgrade to Android 4.0.
That could take weeks or even months as we have no idea how far along Samsung and Verizon are with that update.
As for owners of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Ice Cream Sandwich is here and that means that the tablet has been outfitted with a number of new features that should stand to improve the device overall.
Ice Cream Sandwich brings a new user interface that is vastly improved over the software that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 had on board previously and it also brings Face Unlock, a better Gmail application, an improved browser, and a host of other features that make this an update worth upgrading to.
We also imagine that, like most major Android updates, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Android 4.0 update comes with bug fixes and enhancements.
It might also come with some ICS bugs of its own though.
Owners of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will want to go into the device’s settings to check for the update. If it’s available, there should be a prompt to download and install the update which apparently sits at just over 300MB in size.
That means that it should take a little bit to get up and running but once that happens, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will finally have Android 4.0 up and running.
