Android 4.0 Adds More Pen Powers to AT&T's Galaxy Note
Samsung and AT&T have revealed that the Galaxy Note will receive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich starting July 10. In addition to updating the device from Android 2.3 to Android 4.0, the new system software also adds what Samsung calls the "Premium Suite." The suite chiefly adds more functionality to the S-Note application. Some of the new features include a range of functions that make it easier to write and format text, re-draw shapes into proper polygons, and convert handwritten text to typed text. S-Note also now works with Wolfram Alpha, and can be used to work out math problems. Users simply draw the equation on the screen and Wolfram Alpha delivers the result. Last, the update also adds a S-Memo widget to the Note, and made it easier to create custom greeting cards with the My Story app. The update may reach some users as early as today, but it scheduled to roll out in waves beginning Tuesday.
