Verizon's Galaxy Tab 10.1 getting Ice Cream Sandwich


very little shutter lag is not the same as zero shutter lag which the Galaxy Nexus and S III have. This sounds like a cut and paste by verizon

Its amazing how often shutter lag is really the time it takes to fetch and play the shutter sound. Especially on older phones.

Yeah, the Tab WIFI only got 4.0.4 with an old touchwiz a few weeks ago. Eww. I never even tried it out, been running rooted 4.0 since the day I got it in March. Now I'm running JB on it
