Samsung Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich Update Available In India

Earlier this month, Samsung had started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Note in certain regions of the world. Beginning from today, Samsung has started the phased roll-out of the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Note in India.

The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Note brings with it lots of new goodies like Face Unlock, Bluetooth tethering, along with some UI enhancements. The update will also install some premium suite of apps optimized to take advantage of the S-Pen stylus of the handset. Galaxy Note owners in India can download and install the update on their handset-tablet hybrid by using Samsung’s KIES software.

It is quite surprising to see that Samsung India has already released the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Note, while the update for the Galaxy S2 is still not available. The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the S2 was rolled out way back in March. In fact, the retail boxes of Galaxy S2 in India now ship with Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box as well. The official Samsung India twitter account tweeted that S II owners should “stay tuned for updates.”

I used to enjoy the Note and now with this new s/w the phone has become extremely slow. it makes me wonder why did I even change from ginger bread. Can some one help or advise what I can do to improve its performance?
