    or are they going to launch a new version of samsung galaxy note with iceceream sandwich softtware in it? please help me ans make me understand.

    • Yes. Samsung’s Galaxy Note will be receiving Ice Cream Sandwich as an over the air update. It’ll work just like the upgrade from Froyo to Gingerbread. Users will be asked to upgrade via their network or carriers

  2. So how are you supposed to update a Galaxy Tab 7+ if you have the WiFi version only?
