Samsung Galaxy Note ICS update coming in Q2 with Premium Suite in tow

Samsung Galaxy Note ICS update coming in Q2 with Premium Suite in tow
Listen up, Samsung Galaxy Note owners: we bring you both good and not-so-good news today. The good one is that an update to Android 4.0 is indeed coming to the phablet, and along with all the Ice Cream Sandwich goodness, it will bring a "Premium Suite" containing a bunch of extra apps that take advantage of the device's S-Pen accessory.

Shape Match and Formula Match are among the list of these apps. They can be used to correct and digitize geometric shapes, tables, and grids drawn with the S-Pen, and will even be able to solve numeric formulas. Next on the list is the My Story app, that allows you to design your own personalized digital cards. Last but not least, an extra Angry Birds Space level will be made available exclusively to Samsung Galaxy users, along with 30 additional "Danger Zone" stages for extra fun.

And now for the not-so-good news: the Samsung Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich update will be released during the second quarter of 2012, and not by the end of Q1, as previously thought. Oh well, at least we hope it will be worth the wait. For more information on the ICS update for the Galaxy Note and on the Premium Suite, check out the press release below or simply watch the video that we have embedded.

Wrong. Q2 means the 31st of June. They NEVER release updates at the beginning of a quarter that they promise. It's always at the very end.

Too bad this means probably June 31st, given the way manufacturers wait until the last possible day of a quarter to release an update.

Even if Samsung releases it on April 1st AT&T will still need to add it's bloatware and Isis apps screw with the UI then release it to us in Nov.
