Following a few scattered releases in Europe, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is landing in the U.S. by way of Verizon. All of the stuff you'd expect is there, including a new tab for handling home screen widgets, a data usage monitor, revamped settings menu structure, and a few other odds and ends. The full feature list can be found in this PDF.

There's still no word on specific dates, but don't be surprised if ICS becomes available sooner than later. Any Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 users in the house? Anyone tempted to pick one up for $400 now that the software is reasonably current, or is it not worth a second glance without Jelly Bean?
