Samsung lists ICS eligible US carrier devices

While those in the UK are currently enjoying the Ice Cream Sandwich update to the Galaxy S II, there are a multitude of products in the United States that are still stuck with Gingerbread six months after the Android 4.0 debut. Samsung has announced its plans to update various devices going forward, which includes both smartphones and tablets.

On Verizon, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 7.7 will be seeing the update, as well as the WiFi-only versions of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 8.9. The Epic Touch 4G will also be getting an ICS treat, along with AT&T’s range of Samsung devices.

The Galaxy S II, Galaxy S II Skyrocket, Galaxy Note, Captivate Glide, Nexus S, and Galaxy Tab 8.9 will all receive the update. Unfortunately for T-Mobile users, there isn’t a detailed list of upgradeable devices, but Samsung say that it is in “close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible devices are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months.”

As for exactly when everyone will be seeing their updates, well, that’s not clear either. Keep the faith, true believers. In the meantime, you can always import unlocked devices, or maybe root the one you have and trundle through xda-developers for an ICS ROM.
