Ice Cream Sandwich Update Begins to Roll Out to Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi Tablets

This morning, owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 were waking up to a pleasant surprise. Ice Cream Sandwich! Back in June, Samsung mentioned that Ice Cream Sandwich would be coming to their Galaxy Tab line, but it’s almost September and it’s finally here for the 8.9 variant. Better late than never I suppose.

Galaxy Tab 8.9 owners, you get your update yet?

Cheers everyone who sent this in!

    Got it yesterday for my 8.9. Very happy, except . . . flash no longer works? Can’t watch flash videos on web?? Not compatible with ICS? Am I missing something?

    • Sideload flash, search xda or google as there are plenty of threads with links to the apk

  • No love for the AT&T variety….:(

    W T H! NO update available?!?? WTF!

  • Jroc869, Cool story bro

    I Looooooooooooooove Android and couldn’t see using any other OS but man this is just sad. I look forward to the day when updates to devices are closer together that months upon months. Maybe all this Samsung vs Apple heat will start to push OEMS to put out vanilla devices. Wouldn’t it be sweat justice if the very thing Apple was so proud of, actually pushed Android in a direction that made it infinitely better.
