Android Ice Cream Sandwich for the Tablet S, Galaxy Note

In the wake of CTIA, a number of Android devices have gottenupdates to Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

First up there’s the Sony’s Tablet S, which I’ve alwaysthought to be one of the nicest Android tablets going thanks to its combinationof multimedia features tapping into Sony’s consumer-electronics expertise.According to Sony Canada’s announcement, this upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwichadds a panoramic camera feature, enhanced gallery, native screenshots and more.The update is already rolling out, so if you have the Tablet S and haven’tgotten an update notification, you can head into your settings to look for itmanually.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note is also receiving the Ice CreamSandwich update. Before its launch several months ago, many thought the Notewould come with Ice Cream Sandwich already onboard, since the Galaxy Nexus hasalready launched with the newer OS, and were therefore disappointed to see it shippingwith Honeycomb. Even though there doesn’t seem to have been an officialannouncement yet, this update is already starting to roll out, so keep youreyes on your Note for the update.

Asus also made an announcement over its Twitter account thatthe Eee Pad Slider SL101 is also starting to receive ICS in the US. Again, itshould be an over-the-air update, so if you have this unit and haven’t receiveda notification, you can try to head into the settings to look for the updatemanually.

Meanwhile, you know who won’tbe getting the ICS immediately? Users of the LG Optimus 2x, if we’re to believethe comment left on Facebook by LG Mobile Singapore, indicating it’ll be Q3before users see the update. (The smiley face tacked onto the end of that postis a pretty good object lesson as to how NOT to deliver bad news to customers,incidentally.)

And the fun continues.
