Samsung today announced that it will be distributing a large "Premium Suite" system update to the Galaxy Note during the second quarter that includes Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and other new features. The update will add a number of new S Pen-optimized apps to the Note, including Shape Match and Formula Match, which help correct and digitize geometric shapes and numeric formulas. The Premium Suite also includes My Story, another S Pen app that lets owners create greeting cards using various types of content (photos, videos, etc.). Samsung said the exact timing and delivery of the upgrade is dependent on local carriers. AT&T sells the Galaxy Note in the U.S., and hasn't specified when this update will be available.

AT&T revealed that it will sell Samsung's monstrously large Galaxy Note smartphone/tablet. With its 5.3-inch display, the Note defies categorization.
