Android 4.0 ICS update for the Samsung Galaxy Note gets the green light in the UK
posted by John V. / Jun 01, 2012, 11:40 AM
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.

I strongly suspect that once again the carriers are to blame for the slow pace of updates here in the US. Hate to say it, but the manufacturers need to take a cue from Apple and just tell the carriers straight up that they need to be able to push updates out faster, and that they won't put out phones for the carriers unless the carriers agree to help cut down update time and not try to control the phones as much.

I wonder if they fixed the hard brick bug from the faulty emmc firmware yet? Just don't do a factory reset on ICS.

just tried the OTA update and nothing there. Open Kies and upgraded the version and Firmware update screen popped up. Can't complete the ICS upgrade for the minute as the system is telling me my battery is too low. It's here and now in the UK. BTW i'm on vodafone
