Samsung Captivate Glide gets its Ice Cream Sandwich update

Samsung Captivate Glide gets its Ice Cream Sandwich update
Released last November, the Samsung Captivate Glide came to market with Android 2.3 on board. Now, the device is being updated to Android 4.0 which should make owners of the device very happy. The update allows AT&T to make good on a promise it made back in March to take the Samsung Captivate Glide to Android 4.0. A month later, Samsung confirmed that the update was coming.

The new features include an improved browser with better page loading, tabbed browsing, offline reading and the ability to see sites in desktop mode. The update brings the ability to unlock your phone directly to the camera, the dialer, text messaging or the home screen. When you're done with a notification, it can be swiped away and the Recent Apps shortcut lets you switch between apps faster, allowing to multitask with the best of them. Face Unlock lets you look at the camera to unlock your phone.

Because the update is not coming OTA, you need to hook your phone up to your PC or Mac and go to Samsung Kies to download ICS. And if you're phone hasn't yet been updated tyo Android 4.0, keep your fingers crossed. The carrier says it will continue updating Android handsets.
