Ottime notizie per i possessori del Samsung Galaxy Note. Samsung ha, infatti, pubblicato nel suo canale ufficiale un video teaser che mostra il Note con l’aggiornamento ad Ice Cream Sandwich (atteso per il Q2 di quest’anno, periodo quindi aprile-giugno). Oltre a ciò viene introdotta la cosiddetta Premium Suite, una serie di nuove funzionalità e mini software in grado di migliorare ed arricchire l’esperienza dell’S-Pen su questo device.
Come possibile vedere dal video, la Premium Suite introdurrà alcune nuove funzionalità specifiche per l’S-Pen, tra cui segnaliamo S Note che permetterà di integrare contenuti digitali con appunti presi a mano e My Story con la quale sarà possibile creare delle cartoline digitali ed editarle a proprio piacimento, il tutto sempre attraverso l’S Pen.
Ecco dunque spiegato il motivo del ritardo nell’aggiornamento del Galaxy Note al nuovo Ice Cream Sandwich. Vi lasciamo con il comunicato stampa ufficiale di Samsung:
