Only the vanilla USA (WiFi) ICS has been released. Carrier specific versions and 3G/LTE haven't come out yet. The last rumor I heard is December for the rest.

I cant argue with that. Here's an interim solution for you. It's a development ICS rom for the 7300. It works really well on mine:

Sammobile is now showing ICS for the UK and Ireland 7310. Hopefully the 7300 isn't far behind!

Suderio, welcome to Android Forums

Yes you can use this ROM and it comes with Espaņol. It does install via Odin and since it's a stock Samsung ROM meant for the device, the risk is minimal.

Hope that helps!

And there was much rejoicing! At SamMobile.com:

Samsung start Ice Cream Sandwich update Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE SGH-I957

There is a "default" version and AT&T version on their firmware download page.

Default Done!

Since I've never used Odin before, I was a little bit afraid. So I read about it in the internet and decided it was not a big deal...

Soooo simple! Everything worked just fine!

Downloaded the firmware from Sammobile (links above), flashed via Odin, and now enjoying Ice Cream Sandwich running smoooooth in my galaxy tab 8.9.

Really recomended!

No more waiting for Sansung to realase it via OTA here in Brasil.

Anyway, is there any chance of Jelly Bean????

No chance of getting official Jelly Bean from Samsung, but you can get CM10 from Kallt Kaffe (spelin?) over at xda.

Terrible update. Everything is glitchy and slow. Browser bookmarks don't work anymore (force closes the browser) and more lag. It allows worked perfectly fine before. The only help option is to factory reset but I really don't want to lose all my app data (and no sd card on this piece). Sheesh. Nothing I can do about it now.

Sadly, a factory reset is pretty much mandatory after such a big update like from Honeycomb to ICS. It will work much better afterwards.

Rooting the 8.9 is really easy. If you did so you could backup your data with Titanium Backup and restore after the reset. My $0.02.
