Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 7.7 is a beautiful tablet, we reviewed it earlier this year and fell in love with it. At the time one of the only negatives was Honeycomb 3.2 holding back the full potential of the hardware. Well last night Samsung released Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich for lucky owners in Austria, but that doesn’t stop Tab 7.7 owners everywhere flashing it now courtesy of SamMobile and Odin. Warning, at this time ICS is only available for the 3G version of the Tab (P6800) NOT the wifi only version (P6810) found in Officeworks and other local retailers. The wifi version of ICS is likely to be released in the next week or so (hopefully sooner).
I flashed the ICS rom to my own P6800 last night and the performance improvement is impressive, it’s like a whole new tablet! For those considering the Nexus 7 but disappointed in the specs, the Tab 7.7 running ICS just became a real contender.
