Recently, ASUS announced through its Twitter account that it will soon roll out the upgrade of the latest Android operating system known as the Ice Cream Sandwich to its United States model of the Eee Pad Slider. Asus made a confirmation that the Android 4.0 update will be available to the owners of the device very soon so owners of the Slider should regularly check their update button. All four of ASUS' tablet line already runs on the ICS OS.
The Android 4.0 upgrade for the Galaxy Note of Samsung should be available to the United States very soon. In a recently held media event, AT&T showcased the Galaxy Note running on the latest operating system. Google said that AT&T is presently having a little event at New Orleans' CTIA. In the event, Samsung displayed the Galaxy Note that runs on the ICS OS. Android Central was present in the shindig and took a brief video of the Note with latest software.
Google said that the only actual difference appears to be in the menus. In any case, users who have not yet obtained the ICS OS on their Galaxy Note device will have the update coming to them very soon.
Speculations of the Android software reaching the phablet or the hybrid between the tablet and the smartphone have been coming out the World Wide Web since December of 2011. Currently, it appears like it is already time for the main carriers of the United States to start the Android 4.0 ICS OS roll out.
Upgrades to the Ice Cream Sandwich have already started for a lot of international devices of Samsung which includes the Galaxy S2. But, the United States appears to be last on the list of priority of the company. The Galaxy S3 of Samsung will be available in Europe before May ends and it is pre-installed with the ICS.
