This is getting really annoying now. I was planning to sell the NOTE and then ICS comes along - thus I delay selling the handset yet no update arrives. The anxiety of just waiting is drowning me.

samsung always mess up firmware updates look at the first galaxy s,its a case of were huge your not so you get it when we decide the s2 has ics and the notes a bigger version of that basically so if you dont mind samsung and google taking your cash and sticking the middle finger up at you carry on buying their products im not an iphone fan but apples updates are ran far smoother.....

I connected my Note to a laptop and also checked software update on my cp but no update yet. How is it done on Kies? Is it supposed to be automatic when cp is connected via cable to a laptop and Kies is opened? I really want ICS on my phone.

You have a lot more options in email, bold, colourd font, italic, highlight and its easier to attach contacts pictures etc.

The one handed keyboard (calculator, typing and dialing) is really handy. Flip to landscape and you get the full keyboard.

Screen grab is the same (Home and power) but you have to be more exact.

It came out in Australia this PM. (im on telstra).

I cant figure out how to screen grab!!!

Other thoughts so far.
- Multi tasking looks really nice but could be 0.3 sec quicker
- Text select, copy paste is better but not perfect.
- 1 handed keyboard is useful for calculator, texting etc. Should be a really quick way to change.
- Email app finally had ability to mark multiple as read
- generally quicker and better looking.
