Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update for Samsung Galaxy Tabs Starts!

Samsung has officially started the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 updates for their existing Galaxy Tab lineup of tablets, starting with the Galaxy Tab 7.7 GT-P6800 which is already getting the update through Kies.

Samsung will continue to roll out the Android 4.0 update for all their tablets in July and continue into August, with more and more regions to get it gradually as usual. Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners will probably have to hold out the longest as it seems to be the last device on the list to get the update.

The next devices to get the update will be as follows:

  • GT-P6210 Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WIFI
  • GT-P6200 Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WIFI + 3G
  • GT-P6810 Galaxy Tab 7.7 WIFI
  • GT-P6800 Galaxy Tab 7.7 WIFI + 3G
  • GT-P7310 Galaxy Tab 8.9 WIFI
  • GT-P7300 Galaxy Tab 8.9 WIFI + 3G
  • GT-P7510 Galaxy Tab 10.1 WIFI
  • GT-P7500 Galaxy Tab 10.1 WIFI + 3G

So, in a few weeks, all the Galaxy Tab will be rocking Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. If you have the Galaxy Tab 7.7, you can connect it to the computer and grab the update from Kies right now. Let us know your impressions of it, in the comments below. To all else, be patient, the update is almost here!

    Cool now that the JB is out soon, we are getting the ICS on the Galaxy. How long we have to wait for th JB update,

    Ice cream, jelly bean I can get at the shops any time, however its likely to be stale by the time I get it on my Samsung tablet. Also has left a very sour taste.

    Samsung you are a disgrace.. Where is ICS for the P7300 that has been promised for over a year??? I will never buy another Samsung product or Android device.

  • Emma

    Still no ICS nor JB update for P7300 🙁
    – Bad press for Samsung

  • Alan T

    3 months on and still no OTA ICS update for GT-P7300 in the UK and the latest Kies update says it doesn’t recognize this device! I have clearly wasted my money here. Goodbye Samsung.

  • GT-P6210 Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 WIFI says unable to update via Kies and there is no OTA update either. What gives? Now Dec 1 and no ICS!!!!
