As some Android users await the official OT Jelly bean update, some are still stuck at GB and Honeycomb waiting for an ICS update. If you’re one of them and you own one of the newer versions of Galaxy Tab, then that long and agonizing wait is about to be over.
Our source said that an Android 4.0.4 update has already begun rolling out for some Galaxy Tabs and the global update is imminent in the coming weeks.
Here’s the list of those slates:
GT-P6210 Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WiFi
GT-P6200 Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WiFi + 3G
GT-P6810 Galaxy Tab 7.7 WiFi
GT-P6800 Galaxy Tab 7.7 WiFi + 3G
GT-P7310 Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiF
GT-P7300 Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi + 3G
GT-P7510 Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi
GT-P7500 Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi + 3G
Although there’s no word on the exact date when the update will be rolled out here, we suggest to start checking for the ICS update on Samsung Kies or on your tablet once in a while some time next time next week.
If you’re an owner of one that tablets above, you might feel a bit disappointed about the late release of the update. I know I’d be. And what adds insult to the injury is that it’s not Jellybean. But looking at the brighter side even if the update was late and it’s not the Jelly bean update that you’d hope for, at least Samsung has still made an effort to bring you up to speed and a step closer to the new OS.
