Samsung starts updating Galaxy Tab 10.1 to Ice Cream Sandwich
Samsung has now finally started pushing the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to some of its tablets including the Galaxy Tab 10.1. It’s a bit ironic that in times when we’re looking forward to Jelly Bean on devices, the Samsung tablets only get ICS. That irony aside, though, it’s true that Android 4.0 is an essential update and brings compatibility with a lot of Android apps you wouldn’t otherwise be supported on earlier versions.

Samsung now reiterated that the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 7.7 Wi-Fi, Galaxy Tab 7.7, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 7.0 with Wi-Fi are all getting bumped up to Android 4.0.

You can hook up your tablet to your computer and update via Samsung’s Kies application, or wait for the over-the-air (OTA) update to automatically appear in which case you’d need a solid Wi-Fi connection for the download.

Samsung says the next tablets scheduled for the update to 4.0 are:

We haven’t yet received the OTA update on our Galaxy Tab 10.1, but we’ll keep on refreshing. Have you gotten the update? Let us know below.

The update certainly has made the tab faster and has incorporated much more of the ics styling,plus the likes of the excellent chrome browser is now available to download. Touchwiz on the tab is fine but with isc apex launcher and nova laucher are now available and the tab certainly flies with smoothly,using one of these launchers is well recommended!

Thank God. My sister has the 10.1 but it is so SLOW. I have a rooted Kindle Fire with a Jelly Bean ROM, and it is so much quicker.I hope this update really helps.

How do you update using Kies? I got connected with it, but don't see how to perform the update. Any help?

Mine showed up as an over the air update through settings on the tab,it might be though that ics is not available fin your region or through your carrier yet. If an update is available for your tab through kies it should notify that its available as soon as kies detects and necognises the tab
