Thanks to a new page put up by Samsung, everyone can see which Android-powered phones and tablets are set to receive an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. The support page breaks down the phone models by carrier but does not give specific dates to expect the updates by. The page, available here, at least gives hope to the owners of listed phones that they will eventually get the update.




For Verizon, owners of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or the Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet are destined for Ice Cream Sandwich.


For AT&T, the Galaxy S II, Galaxy S II Skyrocket, Captivate Glide, Nexus S, Galaxy Tab 8.9, and Galaxy Note is on the list.


For Sprint, the Nexus S 4G already has the update and the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch is sitting around waiting.


For WiFi only, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, Galaxy Tab 8.9, and Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners will be happy to hear they are getting the update.


For T-mobile, you guys are a bit out of luck as nothing specific has been given. It only states that Samsung 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 and will provide updates as we have additional details to share."
