The Galaxy Tab 7.7 (GT-P6800) has an update to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich available on Kies. Kies is a desktop application that you can sync and update your devices with. I am not sure why this is not an over the air update.
SamMobile is reporting that the Galaxy Tab line will receive an update to Ice Cream Sandwich very soon. The updates will apparently start in July, but most are planned for August. Keep reading for the list of Galaxy Tabs to get the update then. It appears to be the entire Honeycomb lineup.
Engadget just posted its tablet buyer’s guide for spring and the Galaxy Tab line was listed three times. Only two Galaxy Tabs are on the list though – Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and the Galaxy Tab 7.7. The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is listed on the the budget category and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is listed under both the 7 inch category and the 3G/4G category.
Samsung released their upgrade plan for United States tablets. All Wi-Fi Galaxy Tabs that are currently on Honeycomb (3.X) will receive an update to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0). On AT&T, both the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich. On Verizon, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will receive the update to Ice Cream Sandwich. Samsung has not released any information about tablets on other US carriers though.
Verizon is going to be getting the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in stock in just two days (March 1st). They will be selling it on a two year contract for $499.99. It sports a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor that I assume is Exynos like the Galaxy Tab 7.7 announced at IFA last year. It will launch with Honeycomb 3.2 and will likely be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich eventually.
