Back in March, we brought you the news that the Samsung Galaxy Note would take a little longer to receive Ice Cream Sandwich – pushing the release back to the second quarter 2012, though there weren’t any reasons given for the delay. We’ll just assume it’s because they were working on some awesome for you.
It seems they were.
Not only is the Galaxy Note already a popular ‘little’ (not literally) device, but my guess is it’s about to become more so, as the update to ICS is just around the corner, but it doesn’t stop there – not only do you get the latest Android release for your phablet, but you’re about to get a heap more too. The latest release will bring “Premium Suite”, a software package containing a bunch of extra apps that take advantage of the device’s S-Pen.
Shape Match and Formula Match are among the list of these apps. They can be used to correct and digitize geometric shapes, tables, and grids drawn with the S-Pen, and will even be able to solve numeric formulas. If you don’t think this is cool, watch the video below – I can see the Galaxy Note replacing the iPad for a lot of people who’d otherwise use one.
Next on the list is the My Story app, that allows you to design your own personalized digital cards. Last but not least, an extra Angry Birds Space level will be made available exclusively to Samsung Galaxy users, along with 30 additional “Danger Zone” stages for extra fun.
If you have the Note, and you’re looking forward to this, let us know in the comments. For a preview of what’s to come, check the video below:
