Beginning Nov. 10, ATT customers who have a Samsung Captivate™ Glide will be able to update their phone to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
Android 4.0 simplifies common actions and includes a new typeface optimized for high-resolution screens to improve readability.
The many new features include the new browser with improved page loading, tabbed browsing, offline reading and desktop mode. There are new lock/unlock features such as the ability to unlock directly to the camera, text messaging, phone dialer, or home screen, or you can use Face Unlock which lets you unlock your screen using facial recognition technology.
You can easily swipe away notifications with the new notifications bar and multitasking is easier with the new Recent Apps Shortcut that lets you switch between apps quickly. There’s even a setting to help your track your data usage.
Customers can download the update by visiting www.samsung.com/us/attcaptivateglide/update from a personal computer and following the instructions on the site.
We are continuing to launch ICS on additional Android smartphones, so be sure to stay tuned for the latest!
