Galaxy Note ICS upgrade delayed by Samsung till Q2, but with a good reason (video)

Thursday 22nd, March 2012 / 15:13 Written by

Although Samsung Galaxy S II users have been enjoying their Android 4.0 goodness, it seems the Galaxy Note has been slow off the mark. Samsung originally announced the Galaxy Note would be getting Ice Cream Sandwich along the Galaxy S II in the Q1 of 2012, but has since moved this back to Q2 instead. This however, does come with it’s advantages, mainly the fact that is will be arriving worldwide as part of the new “Premium Suite” software upgrade packed with exclusive applications aimed to emphasize the unique abilities of the S-Pen stylus. Such applications include the S Note, which allows you to combine notes and drawings with pictures or even other apps such as Formula match and Shape match which are also new to the scene to assist recognition of hand drawn formulas and geometric shapes. The final app bundled into this upgrade is My Story, designed to help you create personalized e-cards using any type of content including notes, video content, photos, text or voice. And for those looking to be less productive and have a bit more fun, Samsung have provided a treat in the way of an exclusive Galaxy Note level in the new Angry Birds Space game and free access to 30 “Danger Zone” levels available within the 3 month period.

Now don’t worry, like the Galaxy S II upgrade, the Galaxy Note will be receiving new Android 4.0 features such as Face Unlock and Snapshot . The upgrade will also include swipe to dismiss notifications and the ability to terminate recently opened applications by just swiping them away.

So go ahead and watch that video kindly provided by Samsung and get a preview of what is to come for the Galaxy Note and the “Premium Suite”.
