    Samsung Shares List of First Galaxy Devices to get Android 4.0/ICS in Early 2012

    Samsung today announced that they will be updating a slew of Galaxy devices to Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich early next year.  Samsung indicated that the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note will get the update first, then the others will follow at some time within that quarter. They made no specific announcement of whether the U.S. versions will receive the update at the same time as the international versions. Considering that it is just a software update, you would think they could release them simultaneously, although that could stretch their servers thin.  You can see the list of devices after the break.

    Transformer Prime Magnetic folding Cover Accessory

    We meant to bring you this news a couple of days ago, but got swamped with more high-profile stories.
