AT&T Galaxy Note Tastes Ice Cream Sandwich With Premium Suite Of Apps

Here is some Ice Cream Sandwich filled news for AT&T Galaxy Note owners. Samsung and AT&T have finally started rolling out the Android 4.0 update for the ‘phablet’. The Android 4.0.4 update for the Note barely brings any major UI changes that Google introduced in stock Android. There are a few minor UI changes though, including new Wi-Fi/Bluetooth toggle buttons, and a revamped Settings menu etc.

Apart from the visual changes, the Android 4.0 update brings with it quite a lot of new features including Face Unlock, a new lock screen with quick access to the camera, the ability to access the notification bar right from the lock screen, People’s app, enhanced copy and paste functionality and more. The ICS update for the Note will also enable the hidden NFC functionality in the phone, thus allowing access to features like Android Beam.

The update also brings with it Premium suite of apps specially optimized for the Galaxy Note and its S-Pen, including enhanced S-Note and S-Memo apps. The update is being rolled out via KIES at the moment, so if you own a Galaxy Note, you need to download and use Samsung’s KIES software to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich on your phone..err..tablet..phone.

A guide on how to manually install the Ice Cream Sandwich update on the AT&T Galaxy Note can be found here.
