  1. I know this is a version of the TAB 1, but couldn’t Samsung just put all their resources in JB altogether? Devices that are able to run ICS should be able to run JB just fine

  11. BIG Fail Samsung!

  13. Do you really think Samsung cares about such “old” devices like the P7500 or i9100? Noo, for each new Android version, a new phone will be released, that’s how lame they really are.

    I’ve already evolved to a nexus device and I can’t wait to get rid of my P7500 for a brand new nexus 10. Samsung just ain’t worth it.

  14. @Hornedfiend: Bollox, the Note 1 for instance went from 2.3.x to 4.0.x and will at least get 4.1.x. If you were right then we would be at Note 3 already :’)

  15. Any screenshot? Can you make calls now?

  22. Thanks! I have downloaded this and successfully installed on my P7300 UK 32Gb 3G 8.9 Tablet; and also managed to root it too. Why on earth Samsung don’t make this easier for us I don’t know… probably the last time I’ll buy Samsung, but for the moment I’m happy.

    Great update that transforms the tablet – much faster :)

  23. Flash player did not work after p7300 last updated to ICS.

  24. Do you have permission to make gsm voice calls?

  25. Seems that this rollout has either been stopped/stalled or cancelled. Began in November 2012 and still roughly half (a bit less than a half actually) of regions have received ICS. Just a handful of regions received ICS this year comparing to November/December rollouts. Maybe when 2nd gen Tabs and Note will have their JB rollouts completed, Samsung will continue with 8.9 i dunno :(
