Samsung Bungles Galaxy Note ICS Update; Let’s Hope The Tabs Fare Better

While Galaxy Note users in the States continue to await updates bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to their handsets, distribution is well underway for the international edition of the Note. Not everything has been going smoothly, though, with reports coming in from France that the ICS update for the Note there is causing crashes and even bricking.

Samsung has acknowledged that something is amiss, and is inviting users who have run into such problems to contact its technical support department. In the interim, it’s halted distribution of the ICS update, at least in France. Hopefully Samsung will be able to get to the bottom of what’s causing these bugs quickly, and be able to resume update distribution without the threat of any more bricked handsets.

In other Samsung ICS update news, just a couple weeks ago the manufacturer announced upcoming ICS updates for its older Galaxy Tab models, all set to arrive during this month and August. Sure enough, the first of those is now out, with Tab 7.7 owners in Australia reporting the ICS update becoming available to them through Kies; it shouldn’t be much longer now before the rest of us start seeing these, too.
