Samsung Galaxy Note ICS update live, Premium Suite delight

By Alan Ng - May 10, 2012

We have some fantastic news for Samsung Galaxy Note users now, as it looks like Samsung has now started to deliver on their highly anticipated Ice Cream Sandwich update, which comes packaged as part of the Premium Suite upgrade announced a few months ago.

We told you back in March that the ICS update had been delayed, to obvious moans and groans from the Android community. At the time though we told you it wasn’t all bad since Samsung had plans in place to make the ICS update worth while since it would also come bundled with some other new functionality for the phablet device.

According to a thread we spotted on XDA Forums, the update is now rolling out sporadically, with users in Germany said to be getting the update first. However, the update is now appearing in other countries as well, so it’s a good idea to check your Kies software updater to see if the upgrade is available.

We have word that the update is 318MB in size and just as Samsung promised, it includes the Premium Suite extras as well. These are the My Story app, the new S Note app and also an app to scribble down some quick memos. Let us know if you have received the notification in the US and other parts of Europe – we have a feeling that it will be available to everyone before the end of the weekend, since that’s usually the case with major Android updates.

It has been a long time coming, but for those that are already running Android 4.0 on the Galaxy Note – is the wait worth it? Let us know how your Galaxy Note handles now with a brand new interface.

    Great news making a very desireable device even more so and more useful.

  • Currently updating via Kies – will let you know when it’s done, pre-update said “Android 4.0” was in the list so fingers crossed …

    •  Update done, gone back to using TouchWiz to test the update, running fine, all apps seem ok – Gmail App is already heaps better, after it’s initial laggy start due to re-installing apps it seems to be running fine – will post again after a while of using …
