The number of devices that received the Android 4.0 update has increased recently with the inclusion of the Samsung Galaxy Note and Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket of AT&T. This comes as the Jelly Bean Android 4.1 is set to be released with the upcoming Google Nexus 7 tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a 5.3-inch smartphone/tablet hybrid that saw notable sales in the market. The long-awaited release of the Android 4.0 update to the Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket of AT&T was finally implemented even as its successor has already entered the US market.

The Android 4.0 update brings a number of new features into the Android-powered devices including a new user interface, the Face Unlock feature, a new browser, and the Android Beam, which is the latest sharing protocol for Android-powered devices that feature near field technology or NFC.

However some users who received the Android 4.0 update on their Samsung Galaxy Note units have noted that the device seemed to function like a Gingerbread Android-powered device and not like the Ice Cream Sandwich Android found on the Samsung Galaxy S3. The Android 4.0 update also brought a number of productivity applications into the Samsung Galaxy Note.

As the number of devices receiving the Android 4.0 update increase, some industry watchers have started to ask when these devices will be receiving the soon-to-be-released Jelly Bean Android 4.1 update.
