Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update Now Available

After rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S2 and the Galaxy Note, Samsung has finally turned its attention to its Honeycomb powered tablets. The Korean company has started rolling out the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in certain regions of the world.

While the ICS update for the Tab 7.7 will not bring major visual changes, it will definitely bring a nice improvement in the overall performance and stability of the tablet. The firmware also fixes quite a few bugs present in the previous firmware for the Galaxy Tab 7.7, including the ability to transfer data from the internal memory to the external SD card without any corruption or permission issues.

At the moment the update is only available for the Wi-Fi variant of the Galaxy Tab 7.7, and is available via OTA as well as via Samsung’s KIES software. Samsung should hopefully show some Ice Cream Sandwich love on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Tab 8.9 within the next one month.

    @64f0e7acd66c61e336bdc82b8a222749:disqus : This is really simple, you don’t need to manually lookout for Updates. Just make sure to go to Setting > Software Update > Keep is Activated.
    If you have Wi-Fi enabled Internet, it should prompt you. Also if using 3G – same result.
    * You might be Charged for 3G though – approximately 233 MB update of ICS is rolling. So beware.
