T-Mobile Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Ice Cream Sandwich Update Coming Tomorrow

T-Mobile has confirmed the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Ice Cream Sandwich update will roll out tomorrow.

On its support page, the carrier has finally confirmed an official release date for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Ice Cream Sandwich update and August 14th is the lucky day that the software will start rolling out to owners.

T-Mobile will not be rolling out the update Over-the-Air (OTA) which means owners will not be looking for a prompt to update. Instead, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus owners will have to update to the new software manually.

T-Mobile’s Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will get ICS tomorrow.

This means that owners will have to download Samsung Kies and pull the update through that application. Samsung Kies will have to be updated to the latest version in order for the update process to work.

Oddly enough, T-Mobile says that the update will take the tablet to Android 4.0.5, though, that is likely a mistake. Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich is likely going to be the version of the software that hits the device though it’s entirely possible that we could see another version roll out tomorrow.

The carrier says that besides Android 4.0 ICS and all of its features, the ICS update will also bring some bad news as the Samsung Media Hub will no longer be available without Ice Cream Sandwich. Those who wish to continue using it will need to update.

Not that owners won’t want to. Ice Cream Sandwich brings a number of enhancements to the table including Face Unlock, a new user interface, an improved Browser, a new Gmail app, a new Recent Apps feature, and a whole lot more. It’s definitely a big improvement over the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus’ previous software.

Detailed instructions about how to update tomorrow can be found on T-Mobile’s support page and after a few, relatively easy steps, owners will be toting a brand new piece of software that should make the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and even better device.
