Samsung Galaxy Note spotted with ICS at CTIA, update incoming?

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note is an awesome phone. Its S Pen is a great iteration of a stylus, letting you jot down notes or draw fun pictures whenever you need to – with great accuracy, to boot. But the biggest letdown of the Note for a lot of users is its inclusion of Gingerbread and the lack of an update to Ice Cream Sandwich (or any news thereof). 

This week is CTIA, an event held in New Orleans, Louisiana, that is basically a large gathering of the top mobile hardware and software companies. One of those companies is Samsung, and it brought its 5-inch Note to the show; this one, running Ice Cream Sandwich.

As noted in Android Central's video, not much has changed and most users will be hard-pressed to find any differences at first glance. Of course, the Android Version section of Settings says 4.0.3 and the menus are a bit different, but Samsung has kept TouchWiz in a big way. 

This device is an official AT&T variant, so hopefully the fact that the update is out there and on official hardware means Note owners will get the update for themselves soon.
