Samsung issued an update for the Galaxy Note 5.3" monster of a phone, and some usability tweaks are in store, taking advantage of that massive screen real estate.

Yeah, i did like it. Now we have some first problems fixed they better just concentrate on 4.0 and a new Touchwiz.

I didn't get it, anyone know when the rest of the world'll get this update? I heard it's only distributed across europe.

I wonder if this device will have the "phone" look of ICS (like what's on the Galaxy Nexus) or the "tablet" look of ICS (that looks like an updated version of Honeycomb).

Phone-look, i guess. Resolution and performance are good enough for tablet-graphics, but for consumers poor eyes it would be a bit to small.

bah! Come on Samsung.. by the time ICS comes out to Galaxy Note, a better phone would be trumping the elegant device. Great OS, WEAK support. :(
