AT&T Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II Skyrocket ICS Updates Released

Samsung Galaxy Note Ice Cream Sandwich - recent apps

AT&T announced this morning that the Ice Cream Sandwich update has finally made its way to the Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II Skyrocket handsets.

In a blog post this morning on the AT&T Consumer Blog, the U.S. carrier announced that two more of its Android family of devices have been updated to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.  While the Skyrocket received all of the usual ICS features, the Galaxy Note received some extra goodies that we first detailed yesterday:

  • New productivity features include: Shape Match, which refines hand-drawn shapes – such as circle, square, lines and arrows; Formula Match, which recognizes and completes complex math formulas; and Knowledge Search, which enables the user to quickly research information from a hand-written note via Wolfram Alpha database.
  • To help to professionalize communications, S Note provides templates for seven commonly used documents such as an idea note, travel notes, diary entry, meeting notes and recipes. An idea note not only captures ideas, it can record the creation process and replay it in the order it was developed. Meeting notes captures agenda items and attendees and will link the meeting to a calendar entry.
  • S Note also allows users to import and annotate a PDF file and convert dictated or hand written memos to text with the Continual Voice Input and Handwriting-to-Text features.

The updates are active right now, and all you need to do to get them on to your phone is to make sure you have the Kies desktop app installed, connect your phone via a sync cable and you should be set to be enjoying all of that Ice Cream Sandwich goodness.
