Looks like the Galaxy Note or its successor is all the news today, the Optus software update page has also been updated to advise that just like Vodafone they have approved the update for their network and are waiting on the manufacturer to roll it out to customers, Samsung has yet to comment on the rollout for the phone on either network but I would again urge Galaxy Note owners to ensure that their Kies software on PC or Mac is up to date in case Samsung decides to roll it out via their desktop software rather than FOTA.

Still waiting on word from Samsung or any of the carriers as to the status of the Galaxy Note Premium Suite that was included with the Ice Cream Sandwich update in other markets around the world which brings updates to the S-Note Productivity Tool, the My Story App and an S Memo Upgrade. Samsung themselves released the video below highlighting the updates in the ICS Premium Suite and that Stylus just really makes me want a note or maybe a Note 2.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

So I have tried updating through kies and FOTA to no avail 🙁


Be really good if there was more communication regarding this. Poor effort on both Samsung Australia and the Australian Telco’s regarding support and updates for the Galaxy Note.


unlreated to the Note but where is the Australian ICS release for the Galaxy Tab 7.7!!
