Samsung is giving out Ice Cream Sandwiches! See if your device is on the list

Despite releasing the flagship phone for Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), the Galaxy Nexus, Samsung has been a bit slow and cagey about its plans to upgrade devices. Until now, at least. The South Korean manufacturer has posted a list of U.S. handsets that will get the ICS update “as quickly and as smoothly as possible.” Things are looking good if you’re on any carrier outside of T-Mobile. We’ve posted the full list below. 

AT&T

  • Galaxy S II (SGH-i777)
  • Galaxy S II Skyrocket (SGH-i727)
  • Galaxy Note (SGH-i717)
  • Captivate Glide (SGH-i927)
  • Galaxy Tab 8.9 (SGH-i957)

Sprint

Verizon

  • Galaxy Tab 10.1 (SCH-i905)
  • Galaxy Tab 7.7 (SCH-i815)
  • Galaxy Nexus (Just kidding! You are currently king of the Android world)

T-Mobile

  • “We are in close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible devices are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months and will provide updates as we have additional details to share,” writes Samsung.

Wi-Fi Tablets

  • Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Wi-Fi (P6210)
  • Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi (P7310)
  • Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi (P7510)

It’s good to see Samsung taking updating more seriously, though it has already been five months since ICS came out. For more information on why you want ICS, check out our Android 4.0 feature breakdown. HTC has also claimed that 16 of its devices will get ICS in the near future. Hopefully, these updates actually happen.
