Android 4.0 update for the Galaxy Note pushed back to Q2

Samsung had finally launched the Android 4.0 for Galaxy Note which was to come in the first quarter of 2012.

Samsung equipped with all the excitement and joy has revealed the release of a new “premium suite upgrade” with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which is now headed to Galaxy note owners and will be received sometime soon in the second quarter. This news comes as a surprise of course, but Samsung did expect to launch the same in the first quarter of Galaxy Note in 2012.

Now with the wrapping up of Q1, it seems as if the announcement of the upcoming upgrades amount to a note from Samsung asking all the Galaxy Note users to excuse the being tardy of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

A recent statement from Samsung encoded that the upgrade package will now also include some multimedia features and new apps optimized for the Galaxy Note’s S Pen Stylus. Of the various features, one is the so called “S note” which according to the company will further integrate written or sketched content with many other kinds of data.

S Note will include some pretty innovative Shape match and Formula match applications which digitize and correct the geometric shapes drawn.  Drawing tables and grids are a lot easier as the drawn grids and tables are instantly digitized, saving the user time and effort. These applications can even solve numeric formulas which are hand drawn with the S Pen thereby, increasing the efficiency and productivity. Searching and obtaining results and information will be a quite easy as the S Note’s integrated knowledge search engines are very handy and fast.

Samsung has also come up to offer the standard consolation prize of global digital culture, the Angry Birds so as to ease the delay of the Ice Cream Sandwich update. Now, for the Galaxy Note, there is brand new Angry Birds Space which covers special extra levels. Also, a special package of 30 extra levels is available for free for all the unpacked Galaxy Notes for the next three months.

This Angry birds strategy is working good for all the users and even getting more customers for the Note while other devices are being upgraded to the Android 4.0 and even Android 5.0.
