The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 gets its ICS update at long last

Samsung is finally reseeding the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Tab 8.9. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 didn’t gain much traction though I have always considered this screen size to provide the best combination of portability and big-screen user experience.

Back in July, Samsung started seeding an Ice Cream Sandwich update to most of its tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 was on the list but the update for it was stopped in its tracks due to some pending issues.

Now, we hear, the updates are seeding again. But seriously? An Ice Cream Sandwich update in the end of December?

You would expect that Samsung would at least have the decency to jump straight to Jelly Bean now that even the cheaper Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 got a hold of it.

Worst of all, the update isn’t yet available to all markets. already has it ready for download for anyone interested, but it’s best that you wait for the official update for your device to come via KIES or OTA. It should be any day now. Here’s hoping.
