Default Bell to roll out ICS for SGT 8.9 in June

Original article here:

List of Bell Android 4.0 updates appears with timelines for each device

If Bell is rolling it out in June, maybe Samsung will roll it out in May or even April.

We can hope, but my track record with Samsung devices is not great. I'll believe it when I see it, not a second before.

They have made promises they never kept before.....

Default Galaxy Tab 8.9 Update?

I haven't had my Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 on for the past few days, but when I turned it on today, I'm getting a "Downloading" message on the main screen. It's been on for about 30 minutes. Is this the ICS Upgrade?

I don't know what it was doing, but I did a hard reset and it's back to normal (?).

The ICS upgrades will be starting very soon in Canada, and then for the rest of us. It looks like Sammy has done their work and now it's up to the carriers.

Galaxy series ICS updates arriving from today, says Samsung Canada

Naaaah, this device is easy to work with and hard to brick.

In any case, I missed this article at Android Central:
TELUS offers up revised ICS device update schedule



So it looks like late July.

That's the date for Telus people to get the update right? Doesn't that typically meant that the WiFi version will get it sooner? Without a carrier needing to approve the software, upgrades usually hit WiFi Only versions first.

Good news, after long waiting Samsung will finally start with the Android 4.0 updates for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 – 8.9 –10.1.
The updates will start in July but the most updates are planned for August. According to our insider the update will improve your battery and speed. Samsung Canada posted a schedule also when we will see the first galaxy Tab updates. Even they say in July / August.

Another good thing is, when we have the first Android 4.0 for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 we will start making our review about the Galaxy Tab 7.7 If you want to see our first Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 WIFI review please stay tuned. That review is plannend to come online this month.

The next tablets will receive an Android 4.0 update.

I'm surprised you don't have it already. I thought they started with Asia and went west from there. What was that whole thing with Canada about then?

The only reason Canada came up is because we happened to get some info about the Canada release. But I would also assume that the Asia market would get it first. I'm in Asia too (Cambodia) and haven t seen it yet.

IMO - its a OS late and a dollar short. I am in love with the 8.9 inch size or I already would have moved on to the Nexus 7. I'm holding out for any announcements of new hardware for the Xmas shopping season and will sell the 8.9 once I decide what to get.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is rolling out now. I'm guessing we're next and will get it starting in a couple weeks.

Samsung start Android 4.0.4 updates Galaxy Tab 10.1 GT-P7500 | SamMobile

Edit: And the 10.1 WiFi version all in one day:
Samsung start Android 4.0.4 updates Galaxy Tab 10.1 WIFI GT-P7510 | SamMobile

Still guessing mid-August for us.

If Kies is required to update then I am hooped. When I plugin my device 8.9 from Rogers Canada, it states my device can not be updated via Kies.

No clue why this is happening...

Thanks, Fitch! I merged your post with our ongoing thread of ICS news.

BTW, only ICS for the GT-P7310 has been released at this point. Those of us with the 3G and LTE versions are still waiting. My guess is we'll have it before the month is over (3 more days!).

Update your Galaxy Tab 8.9 WIFI to Android 4.0.4 in USA | SamMobile

No worries! Just wanted to get the word out to as many as possible. It's a nice surprise to finally have ICS on both my tablet and phone (galaxy nexus).

The first thing I did was download Chrome. Oh how I hated that stock browser!!!

I have the above model and am still waiting. It's so frustrating. I really like ics on my note and have found honey comb a bit laggy

Well, I started this thread in March and I can close it saying that I got my ICS update today. Since Kies doesn't work on any of my 5 pc/laptops, I did an OTA update and am quite happy so far.

If you have a P7310 you can update with Samsung Kies.

I'm guessing Samsung will out them today or tomorrow. But I also guessed before the end of July, the middle of August, etc...

Seriously Jesslynh, thanks for opening this thread. All of us have gained from it.
