Default First thoughts on ICS for 7 Plus

Hey all... Was just wondering if you all have any first impressions of the ICS update that was recently released for the SGT 7.0 Plus that you would like to share. So far I'm loving it. Installed it Monday morning and have been playing around with it since. Still have about 60% battery charge left... I really think the battery life has improved by alot though cause I've been browsing on wifi, watching some video and reading ebooks and normally I doubt I'd still have 60% charge left at this point.

Other thoughts: The interface is smoother, settings panel at the bottom right corner looks better and works differently in terms of notifications, can now swipe off to close apps in the recent apps panel popup menu, new wallpapers, new widgets (I like the new bookmarks widget which displays way more bookmarks at one time), re-sizable widgets, cool animations and transitions on home screens and in app drawer and lots of other improvements including (most importantly) over all speed and fluidity!

I like the touchwiz interface alot too! I said it... I had to redo all my homescreens but I don't mind. It's just like starting fresh... and I really like the news widget and weather widget and everything else that they put there on the main homescreen by default. I left that screen as is and always check in with the news and weather when I wake up the Tab.

All my installed apps were still there. I use evernote, nook, kindle, shadowgun, Firefox Beta and some others.

Generally I'm very pleased with this update and highly recommend ICS for the Tab 7.0 Plus. Any opinions, thoughts, benchmarks, screenshots or anything? Questions if you haven't updated yet or if you have? Apps to recommend? Thanks in advance.
