Telus delays ICS update for Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 until September
Owners of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 may want to read the news sitting down, for Telus has once again bailed out on its initial promise to bring Android 4.0 ICS to the two tablets. The carrier has just updated the ICS upgrade schedule for the umpteenth time, bringing along the not so thrilling news.
The new schedule now puts the ICS update for both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 8.9 on track for a September release. You know the signs are not really encouraging when the carrier doesn’t put a specific date and instead just planks down a month. But hey, we have our reasons to be skeptical.
Back in June, Telus said that the ICS update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was to come in late July. Meanwhile, the old schedule put the update for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 in August. What’s even disconcerting is the fact that the “Testing Status” for the two tablets hasn’t changed a jot. You’ll still see the same “OEM not yet submitted” entry.
As for the LG Optimus LTE, the handset can expect to get ICS as early as August 20. By the way, the update has just hit the Optimus LTE on Bell.
We’re sure you’re quite disappointed with the latest delay in getting Ice Cream Sandwich on the device. Go ahead and let your feelings and frustrations be known in the comments below.
