Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 upgraded to Android Ice Cream Sandwich
Samsung has begun rolling out Android Ice Cream Sandwich to its Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 via the Kies updating software
Android Ice Cream Sandwich is now available via Kies for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7.
Bringing tons of features and improvements, Android Ice Cream Sandwich is a significant update that’s been shown time-and-time again to dramatically improve user experience on Google’s Android platform.
Samsung is said to be releasing the update in bits, so if you plug into Kies and it’s not there, fear not, it is on the way. If you’re the impatient type and don’t like waiting you can always install it manually by visiting this website.
However, the update will not be available over the air (OTA) just yet.
Since the launch of Jelly Bean it’s difficult to get excited about devices getting Ice Cream Sandwich. Partly because the operating system is now nine months old, but most because of just how good Jelly Bean actually is. Check out our review of Jelly Bean running on the Google Galaxy Nexus, to find out more.
We also got a hands-on preview of the Google Nexus 7, which also runs Jelly Bean. The ultra-affordable tablets makes a good impression but today’s news that UK-versions won’t be getting access to Google’s music, magazine and TV services is something of a disappointment.
We’d still probably take a Nexus 7 over a Galaxy Tab 7.7, though. Just saying.
