Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE gets Ice Cream Sandwich

If you’re the proud owner of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 with Verizon 4G LTE we have some good news this afternoon. Verizon’s just posted up the details and changelog for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This means Verizon and Samsung are finally ready to update the slim tablet to Ice Cream Sandwich which should improve the tablet across the board.

Back in June Samsung stated they’d be updating the entire Galaxy Tab family to ICS, and for the most part have finished that plan. As usual carrier branded devices have to wait a bit longer, especially if they’re on Verizon, but today the Tab 7.7 can be checked off that list as the update is on the way.

While we’ve not received reports yet that the update is actually hitting tablets, usually when Verizon posts the details (seen here) that means the update is only a matter of days if not hours away from being available. The update will run you about 283MB in size and might take a few minutes to download and another 10 or so to install — but you’ll be enjoying Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich once completed.

This brings an enhanced user interface, improved performance, Face unlock features, and a re-designed homepage layout. Samsung’s Touch Wiz UX is present but works great so users should be plenty happy after the update. Stay tuned as this should be arriving any day now. I’d be hitting that settings > about tablet > check for updates button starting this evening. Let us know once you get the update folks!
