3G-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (P7300) gets Ice Cream Sandwich

Folks in various parts of the world are set to receive Ice Cream Sandwich on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 today as the OEM has started pushing the Android upgrade to the 3G version. To be specific, those with device model GT-P7300 are reportedly receiving notifications to download and install the big upgrade.

We’ve seen reports from the likes of Austria all the way over to Cambodia, and we’re sure the reports won’t stop rolling in there. Some of you with this particular model might not see it right away, but note that the upgrade would be coming through Samsung Kies. Those with rooted devices can look into their own preferred options for grabbing upgrades, but whatever your situation may be just be happy to know that Ice Cream Sandwich is finally here.

But now folks are starting to look toward Jelly Bean — after all, two major revisions have come out since Google has released the Android 4.1. The fact that it took this long for the Ice Cream Sandwich roll out to happen doesn’t bode well for those looking for the chewy treat.

We wouldn’t hold our breath for Samsung to deliver Jelly Bean in a timely manner so if you’re lactose intolerant or if an Ice Cream Sandwich just isn’t enough to whet your sweet tooth then be sure to explore your after market options at places like AndroidForums.com. In the meantime, keep checking Kies and let us know if your country has started to see the new upgrade in the comments section below.

    Still no hope for the AT&T Galaxy Tab 8.9? I tried to update one at work last night and it didn’t have one. Great job, AT&T/Samsung

    I don’t think they even upgrading it to Jelly Bean.

    Also Available on the GT-P7310 (Wifi only version) at least in the UK.

    Not in Spain yet, at least for the 3G model. I really think this is a great device, powerful enough hardware, light, and, in my opinion, the perfect size for a tablet as I can wear it in a coat pocket while the screen is still quite big. This, however, will very probably be my first and last Samsung Android device as my perception about this company is that they have cheated us (their clients) with the actualizations.
