Android 4.0 ICS update arriving on Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi in the U.S.

by: Bams SadewoAugust 29, 2012

Back in July, Samsung said that they will push out the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9  in August. After months of anticipation for Android’s once coolest iteration to arrive, the new firmware is finally available for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 (P7310) WiFi model.

The Android 4.0 OTA update for Galaxy Tab 8.9 is currently being rolled out by Samsung, which means it’s only a matter of time before you see the notification update on your slate. If you’re getting impatient waiting for the OTA to arrive, the file should be waiting for you on Kies – if it’s your lucky day.

While owners of the Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE  (P7300) have to sit this one out, we imagine it won’t take long for Samsung (or Verizon) to release the update for your variant as well. You can wait with Canadian folks who won’t get the ICS update until September.

Anyone seeing the ICS update notification yet on their Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi?

    I guess now that its out in the usa the rest of the world is irrelevant to samsung. Is there really that much difference between the us and uk firmwares that it takes this long?

    I dont reckon its coming and have given up the wait. Ive now got a tab from a company who cares. So sammy, hope you lose many many more customers :-)
