Samsung Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich Update Available in US

AT&T customers in the U.S. now have the option to update their Samsung Galaxy Note to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.

The carrier announced yesterday that it would be rolling out the software for the smartphone-tablet hybrid along with a new feature known as Premium Suite.

The Galaxy Note ICS upgrade was originally expected to launch earlier this year, however, it seems that it took a lot more time to perfect the software on the device and have it running at an optimum level.

AT&T also began rolling out the ICS update for the wildly popular Samsung Galaxy S2 at the end of last month.

Unfortunately the carrier has not yet released any information on when it will come to the 4G LTE variant the Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, currently available exclusively on AT&T.

Ice Cream Sandwich will also be available on the Samsung Galaxy S3 when it launches in the U.S. this month.

Google seems to have already moved on to the next plateau with its recently unveiled Android 4.1, JellyBean software that seems to perfect some of the newer features on ICS.

The new OS will officially launch on the Google Nexus 7 tablet.

It does not seem like the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S2 will receive the software due to the company's determination to market new devices.

Some tech publications have reported that the S2 does not have the right set of specifications to support the new software. That seems like false information, though, since the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S are scheduled to receive it.

Those devices have similar specifications to the Galaxy S2.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is also expected to receive Android 4.1, JellyBean in the fourth quarter of 2012.
