T-Mobile Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi Taste Ice Cream Sandwich In The United States

After rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the various Galaxy Tab in different regions of the world, Samsung has turned its attention to the United States. The Korean company has start rolling out the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the T-Mobile Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.

The ICS update for both the Tabs brings some much-needed performance and stability improvements, UI refinements, new features like Face Unlock, in-built Data Monitoring tool, updated Google Apps and more.As of now, only the Wi-Fi variant of the Tab 10.1 is receiving the ICS update.

Owners of the 3G/4G LTE variant of the Tab 10.1, need to wait until the OTA update is ‘tested’ and approved by their carriers, which can very well take up to a few months. The 254MB OTA update should be available to all Wi-Fi Tab 10.1 owners within the next couple of weeks. T-Mobile Tab 7.0 Plus owners need to use Samsung’s KIES software to get Ice Cream Sandwich on their device.

Hopefully, Samsung will roll out the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the forgotten Tab 8.9 owners pretty soon as well.
