Not for North American Versions so far only T-mobile will have ICS when it's released in a week or so.

for the record the galaxy note comes with Gingerbread, the note was waiting for ICS and it was rolling out in Europe (read the update brick issue) so only US is missing the update for now

Instead of including a custom cover, Samsung should include a pair of pants with pockets big enough to carry the phablet.

you can keep the 1080p. you cant tell the difference between 720 and 1080 at that level... however it will eat up much more battery life and processing power.

better would be SA+ RGB 720p at 330ppi.

however, ghost, you want a full PC in your pocket.. lolol.

mathmatically 720p res at 330ppi with 5.5" will be impossible

Remixfa true about the resolution on the screen but were just dreaming here right now and a high ppi would be just as good to me.

Berzerk000 yeah a "portable" computer would be a better term than a smartphone haha
