T-Mobile. Of course, owners of this device would probably prefer to see Jelly Bean come to their device. Still, it's hard to complain about a free upgrade for your device. Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G is sitting on Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. This move will bring them up to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Owners of these devices should be quite happy about the major jump between 2.3.6 and 4.0.4. The update will roll out gradually starting now and it should be available to everyone sometime tomorrow. Some users are reporting that the update is available for their Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G right now, but your results may vary. Either way, if you do not see the update yet, do not fret, because it will be there soon. When the update becomes available users can update over the air or manually. If you choose to go the manual route, you will have to use Samsung Kies to do the update. Make sure you are using the latest version of Samsung Kies before you attempt to update your device.

Samsung? I know they've been overloading the market as of late but this time around it's all about the music. This is certainly no flagship or top-tier smartphone, and will instead be a budget aimed device -- probably for teens wanting to have some exceptional audio quality from their smartphone. Lets take a look at the leaked details below.

Galaxy S owners, you don't want Ice Cream Sandwich, do you? No, that great performance and all those posh new features are for snobs who buy more than one phone every two years. Surely you'll be more than satisfied with a few ICS imitation features added to reliable old TouchWiz via a "Value Pack". Sarcasm aside, that's the attitude that Samsung seems to be adopting with its add-on Value Pack for Gingerbread. The first country to get the update for the Galaxy S is Sammy's home state of South Korea.
SamMobile got their hands on an early ROM. The package was intended to placate angry customers who were upset that Samsung refused to upgrade the older phones to Ice Cream Sandwich, claiming incompatibility with TouchWiz.
ArtStation Pro dock for the various Galaxy Tabs, I had a feeling we'd be seeing a few more model-specific docks coming out, and just today the Nook Color and Nook Tablet got the treatment via ReaderDock. Samsung itself has announced a new series of audio equipment, all of which will work out of the box with Galaxy S (and presumably Galaxy S II phones).
The Next Web reports that Samsung has abandoned even the trifling "Value Pack" you might have gotten in lieu of a real Ice Cream Sandwich update. The Value Pack had been rumored from the South Korean manufacturer after customer outcry at the news that there was no planned upgrade to Android 4.0. Ladies and gentlemen, ready your torches and pitchforks.
no plans to update the various original Galaxy S models and the Galaxy Tab to Ice Cream Sandwich. Users of the popular devices were less than pleased, especially when the company noted that one of the primary reasons that their phones wouldn't be updated was the presence of the TouchWiz interface overlay.
