Android 4.0 lands on Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets

The 10.1-inch and 7.0 Plus tablets have already received the update, but the rest of the lineup is still on the waiting list.

Samsung has rolled out the Ice Cream Sandwich flavor of Android to a couple of its Galaxy Tab tablets.

Android 4.0 is now available to owners of the 10.1-inch and 7.0 Plus models in the U.K., and can be downloaded over the air or installed via Samsung's Kies software application. But the company is so far mum about the rest of its tablet lineup.

The company's U.K. division told TechRadar that "Samsung U.K. can confirm the roll out of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus WiFi and Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi devices is live. Any further updates for the Galaxy Tab range will be announced in due course."

No word on when the update might cross the ocean to the U.S., but TechRadar said that consumers in the U.S. will possibly have to wait a bit longer.

CNET contacted Samsung for comment and will update the story when we get more information.

Updating all of its tablets make take Samsung a while given its hefty lineup. Beyond the 10.1 and 7.0 Plus, the company has to deal with the Galaxy Tab 7.7, the Tab 8.9, the Tab 2 10.1, the Tab 2 7.0, and the original Tab 7.0.
