Samsung Galaxy Note finally gets the official Ice Cream Sandwich

10 May, 2012

Now we've been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for this update to finally come. We even braved to try a leaked ROM to see how ICS would feel like on the Note. What can we say, even the Cyanogen team managed to produce a custom ICS ROM for the device before the manufacturer.

Never mind, the important thing is that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy Note is finally seeding to users across the world. So far there is no official statement by Samsung so the roll-out schedule is unclear. As usual with this sort of things, not everybody would get it at the same time, some regions and SIM-free devices will be first.

If you don't get a notification for the update over the air (as some lucky German users), you can also check with your Kies computer software.

As evident on the screenshot, the changelog is not that long, but the bump to the latest and greatest version of Android (ok, it's 4.0.3 so maybe not ultimately the latest) is certainly worth it and brings along a number of positive changes, which are not that easy to fit in a small changelog like this.

However, Samsung are quick to add additional info on their pre-installed premium apps via a short video ad, which was published about a month ago. Enjoy it below:

If you get your hands on an updated device, please let us know the country and your experience with it in the comments section below.
