Samsung Galaxy Note Android Ice Cream Sandwich update edges closer

The Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update for the Samsung Galaxy Note got a stage closer to reality this week, with the news that an early, official version of the singing-est, dancing-est edition of Android is already on some owners’ phones.

The alpha ICS ROM, clocked on a Chinese tech forum by the good chaps at the XDA Developers site, is only compatible with Chinese models of the Note and isn’t terribly slick right now. That’s something born out by lukewarm testimonies from tech-savvy Note owners who compare it unfavourably to the Gingerbread build that the Note shipped with.

Even so, after some of the update debacles and delays we’ve known with certain manufacturers, it’s heartening to know that work on the Note ICS platform bump is progressing apace.

Earlier this year, Samsung confirmed it plans to bring ICS to the Galaxy Note and the blockbuster blower that is the Galaxy S2 in the first quarter of 2012.

Features Android 4.0 brings to handsets include a smart unlock function that harnesses face detection technology and revamped versions of native apps.
