Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus UK are now rejoicing as the South Korean tech giant has begun rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ICS update in the country.
The move comes as Samsung tablet users worldwide continue to wait for the ICS update even as ICS has been launched by Google and Samsung in October 2011 and its successor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, was introduced in June this year.
The report comes from UK publication TechRadar which said on Thursday that some readers informed the site that they are receiving the ICS update for their Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus tablets.
Furthermore, in an update, the site says that Samsung UK has confirmed the ICS update rollout.
The site, quoting an official statement from Samsung UK, published:
Samsung UK can confirm the roll out of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus WiFi and Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi devices is live. Any further updates for the Galaxy Tab range will be announced in due course.”
This means that Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can now update their tablets via Samsung’s Kies application.
Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus owners in other regions like North America, the rest of Europe and Asia will also likely get the ICS update soon from Samsung.
