Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate Android 4.0 ICS Update Now Available

It looks like that official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for device will continue to come till the year end. While the customers have shifted their attention to Jelly Bean, there are many devices which still haven’t received the love of Ice Cream Sandwich. This is something a sad part and neither the manufacturers nor Google should be blamed for this delay. It’s so because Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich itself is the biggest Android update that requires a rigorous testing.Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate

Does anyone remember Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate smart phone? Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate was first announced in CES 2011 and it was launched in June last year. It didn’t make a much impression as it was low on specs and features thus this is priced at $ 50. Back in December 2011 as Android 4.0 was newly announced, Samsung included this device in the list of device to be upgraded to the Ice Cream Sandwich but didn’t said of any tentative dates of its availability.

The 4G LTE powered device has just received an unexpected surprise waiting for the customers. I am sure by seeing this, Galaxy Exhilarate users would be very much excited to update their device as soon as possible. Starting from today, AT & T will be able to push their device for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update from Android 2.3 Gingerbread directly. Surprisingly this update isn’t available via the Over the Air and this is launched via the Samsung KIES the PC connectivity tool. Assuming that you have Samsung KIES, the latest version ofcourse on your device you should be able to update your device once when you connect your device to the PC using the original USB Cable.
