The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 designed to work with Verizon’s cellular-wireless network is getting a long-awaited upgrade — it is moving up to Android 4.0, a more recent version of Google mobile operating system.
This version, which has the code-name Ice Cream Sandwich, offers a number of new features, including a Browser Desktop View for Web browsing. Those on a tiered data plan should appreciate the Data Usage widget, allowing users to monitor how much data is being exchanged.
Android 4.0 also offers an updated Quick Panel for faster access to frequently used settings. Additional highlights include a redesigned gallery app with Photo Editor.
Getting the Upgrade
Google and Verizon have begun sending out this upgrade, but not all users will get it at once. It might take several days. Owners of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be notified when it arrives, and prompted to install it.
Those who have the WiFi-only version of this Samsung Tablet can install the Android 4.0 upgrade already.
