Ottime notizie arrivano sul fronte del Samsung Galaxy Note, del quale ieri vi avevamo fornito la notizia di una possibile interfaccia che si poteva presentare sul terminale con l’aggiornamento di Android Ice Cream Sandwich installato su di esso. Oggi invece arriva una conferma ufficiale dalla stessa Samsung per quanto riguarda le caratteristiche che verranno apportate con l’update. 

Il Galaxy Note, infatti, non solo riceverà Android 4.0 ICS durante il Q2 (tra Aprile e Giugno) ma riceverà anche una Premium Suite volta a migliorare e ad introdurre nuove funzionalità mirate a potenziare ulteriormente l’esperienza di utilizzo dello smartphone con l’S-Pen. La Premium Suite includerà alcune applicazioni specifiche proprio per l’S-Pen, tra cui vi è S Note, un’applicazione con la quale sarà possibile combinare i contenuti digitali con quelli inseriti a mano. S Note a sua volta sarà collegata ad altre due applicazioni, Shape Match e Formula Match con le quali sarà possibile correggere ed eventualmente risolvere delle formule od equazioni inserite a mano con l’S Pen. Un’altra interessante applicazione sarà My Story, con la quale sarà possibile creare delle digital cards ed editarle a proprio piacimento, il tutto sempre attraverso l’S Pen.

Dunque, ecco spiegato il motivo vero del “ritardo” dell’aggiornamento per il Galaxy Note. Contenti?

Vi lasciamo infine al…
