Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 gets Android ICS in SA

Samsung South Africa announced on Twitter today that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 P7500 can now be updated to Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” in South Africa.

The Korean electronics giant has been mum on its plans in South Africa to roll out upgrades to the underlying Android operating system of its smartphones and tablet PCs.

“The availability and scheduling of the software upgrade and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers’ requirements,” Samsung said when asked about Android updates earlier this year.

However, MTN told Mybroadband towards the end of September 2012 that a host of Samsung devices are set to receive updates to Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean”. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was not listed among them.

Android 4.2 (also “Jelly Bean”) recently succeeded Android 4.1 as the newest version of Google’s mobile operating system when the search giant announced it along with its new range of Nexus devices.
