Android 4.0 ICS update for the Samsung Galaxy Note gets the green light in the UK
Needless to say, there has been a lot of praise surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note of late, but everyone is still wondering when they’ll be able to experience Ice Cream Sandwich on the mighty smartphone. Well, as we already know, our German friends have been living it up with the ICS update early last month, but now we’re hearing word that it’s coming to the folks in the UK as well!

From the sound of it all, the software is being made available as an over-the-air update and through the Samsung KIES desktop software. Of course, UK Samsung Galaxy Note owners should be seeing a notification hitting their smartphone, but if not, you can always check it out for yourself through the KIES software. As for the new update itself, it brings forth all of the Premium Suite of apps that have been designed exclusively for the Galaxy Note – such as the new S Note app and a new S Memo widget for the homescreen.

Slow and steady might be the process for now, but for those AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note LTE owners out there, we’re sure they’re starving to experience the new software as well. Nonetheless, it’s only a matter of time before it happens – albeit, let’s hope that it’s not going to be a long wait. Heck, the Galaxy Note is still one relevant device on the market that’s sure to stand tall against all of the new competition out there.
