Samsung has been taking its own sweet time to update its devices to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The company started rolling out the ICS update for the Galaxy S2 back in late-March, and followed it up with the Galaxy Note, AT&T Galaxy Note/S2, and more recently the Galaxy Tab 7.7.
The Tab 7.7 was the first tablet from Samsung to taste Ice Cream Sandwich, thanks to its similar internals as the S2/Note. Starting from today, the Korean company has started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for its first 2011 tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1. As of now, the update is being rolled out for the Wi-Fi or 3G variant of the tablet (P7510/7500) depending on the region.
A quick reminder of all the new features in Ice Cream Sandwich include a new keyboard with next word prediction, improved performance and stability, enhanced notification bar, revamped UI elements and much more.
The Motorola XOOM was among the first tablets to get Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean, but Motorola did not update the kernel version of the tablet to 3.x. Thankfully, Samsung has updated the core kernel of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the Ice Cream Sandwich update to 3.1.10, which should help improve the overall performance, battery life and stability of the device.
