    Samsung announced on it's Google+ page that the GALAXY Note, GALAXY S II LTE, GALAXY Tab 8.9 and 10.1 will soon be rolling out ICS.

    This is after GALAXY S II update that started yesterday.

    Been a loooong wait since November.

    Is this the 3G version only or the WiFi as well?

    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.....

    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 (?).

    I haven't heard of any updates going out. Perhaps you got an update to Honeycomb?

    Do you think it's worth rooting it or waiting for Samsung to release ICS?

    I'd probably screw it up and brick the thing so I guess I'll wait. :(

    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.

    At this point, were not counting on anything. Sammy has been late on lots of releases.
