The rollout will begin for device owners with a number of European countries — including Poland, Hungary and Sweden — and it will also include those in Samsung’s native Korea. There is no confirmed date as the final details are in the hands of the local carriers, who will review the upgrade and make any necessary tweaks, as the company explains:
The availability and scheduling of the software update and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers’ requirements.
The update comes with a rather generic, but happy sounding, quote from JK Shin, President of Samsung’s IT and Mobile Communications Group, who says:
We expect that our customers will enjoy an enhanced experience with their Galaxy device through this upgrade. Samsung is committed to satisfying our customer needs.
The firm has also promised that Ice Cream Sandwich updates for the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II Lite and Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 will “follow soon”. Let’s take these updates as we’re told and not even go there in trying to estimate a date for them
