Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update finally starts rolling out

Remember the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9? The original Galaxy Tab 10.1’s smaller sibling, launched alongside the bigger device last spring? Well, Samsung seems to have suddenly remembered that this tablet exists. As such, it’s started rolling out the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Galaxy Tab 8.9.

As of now, the update is only out for Wi-Fi-only units sold in the US. The update is rolling out over-the-air, so when it’s ready to download and install, your tablet will pop up a notification such as this one:

As you can see, the update weighs in at a pretty hefty 313.96 MB. If you’re impatient, you can force a check for the update by going to Settings > About device > Software update.
