Samsung's Galaxy Note and S II getting Ice Cream Sandwich soon

New flagship phones will join Galaxy Nexus to run Android 4.0 by end of March

Samsung says Galaxy Note users will be able to catch the Gingerbread man, and throw him out.

After launching on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, Android 4.0 will soon be migrating to the company's other new flagship phones, the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Note.

For months now, we've been hearing about Samsung's new Galaxy Note tablet/smartphone hybrid--the company prefers to call it a "super phone"--that comes with a 5.3-inch HD super AMOLED display and resurrects the stylus. But this month Samsung has been filling in the specifics. We now know it will debut on AT&TFebruary 19 for $299.99.

Then this post on Samsung Norway's Facebook page confirmed that it soon plans to roll out Ice Cream Sandwich to not only the new Note, but also the third in the Korean company's holy trinity of big new releases for the new year--the Galaxy S II.

In the meantime, all Galaxy users--with the exception of the Nexus, of course--are stuck with Gingerbread, which is getting staler by the minute.
