Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 and others to get Ice Cream Sandwich

Samsung UK have confirmed their rollout plans for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) on Galaxy tablets. The first ones to line up to the ICS van is the Galaxy Tab 10.1, with the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 to follow shortly after. TechRader spoke to Samsung UK, who said:

Samsung UK can confirm the roll out of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus WiFi and Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi devices is live. Any further updates for the Galaxy Tab range will be announced in due course.

The update looks to only be splashing down on UK tablets at the moment, with the US having to wait a while before ICS arrives. Personally, this is such a bad move by Samsung (and other companies) as well as Google, because it creates a massively fragmented market, with each tablet having a different OS, based on its locale, etc. Apple, are perfect at pushing iOS to their latest generation devices, keeping them [mostly] the same.
