Samsung Italy apparently confirms what we already guessed -- new Tabs, Galaxy S II, and Galaxy note to get Ice Cream Sandwich

According to the Italian blog Android.HD, Samsung has confirmed that they will be providing the Ice Cream Sandwich update to their latest top-tier devices. Phones and tablets set to get a bit of the latest tasty treat are:

  • Galaxy S II
  • Galaxy Note
  • Galaxy Tab 10.1
  • Galaxy Tab 8.9
  • Galaxy Tab 7.7
  • Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

This is a pretty obvious list, and we came up with something very similar ourselves.  Samsung is playing it safe by not announcing an ICS update for devices like the Galaxy W, or the original Galaxy S line, which we never really expected to see the Android 4.0 update anyway.  While there's no official timeline, expect the updates to start rolling out early next year -- then again in 2013 for the US carrier versions.  Yeah, I went there.

  • I was sold on the 7.7 from day one, but so far it's been two months and not a word on price or release for US... :(
  • My tab is rooted and ready to flash the first ICS build to drop from any country.
  • thank God for root. atleast your not completely forced to wait on carriers
