Seeing as how jelly bean isn't officially released yet. I'd say 4.0.4 is up to date and not behind.

Go Samsung. Release this update to all your tabs before the end of August and you will be good.

nice, the 7.7 is a really solid Tablet offering. ICS will make that Exynos truly shine.

Hmm, tablets are rather easy to port as they are not as heavily skinned as the phone versions. That's why Samsung could update almost all their tablets so quickly.

hahah it says 1Ghz RAM
also my VZW 7.7 probably won't see ICS for another four months seeing how verizon botched Galaxy Nexus update release for roughly four months

Note to Samsung : Please redo your kies software it sucks
And please deliver your updates OTA like HTC

This is a disaster. I have not been able to get Kies to work for me on three different Windows machines! It always disconnects the USB as the download is starting!
Kies DOES NOT WORK!!!
