Samsung Galaxy Note Android 4.0 Upgrade Pushed in Q2
The Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy Note is rumored to have been moved for release during the second quarter of this year. Currently, this device which is a hybrid between a smartphone and a tablet, runs on Android 2.3 Honeycomb.
The delay in the release of the ICS update is due to the inclusion of new enhancements. Samsung calls it their Premium Suite upgrade. These updates enhance and take full advantage of the experience of the 5.3-inch display that the device sports as well as its stylus, the Samsung S Pen.
Among the features of the Premium Suite upgrade is S Note enables users to put together notes and doodles with digital content, allowing them to explore ideas better. To deliver an optimal note-taking experience, Samsung incorporated Shape Match and Formula Match functionalities with the S Note, which work to give accurately-drawn digital equivalences to the drawn geometric shapes.
Another feature is My Story, which lets users create digital cards using a wide range of digital media. In addition to this, users may also expect exclusive levels to the new version of the immensely popular bird-pelting game, Angry Birds, called Angry Birds Space.
The availability of the ICS update, however, will vary depending on the market and the wireless carrier.
