Some lucky fellas have been enjoying the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update on their Galaxy S II units since this morning, but those based in the UK will have to wait another week.

Poland, Hungary, Sweden and Korea are the markets in the first wave of the update roll-out, with UK (among others) to follow shortly. The exact quote that Pocket-lint.com managed to get from Samsung is that the update will start seeding in Britain in the week commencing March 19, which is exactly 6 days from now.

And with the Galaxy S II update already rolling out, the Samsung R&D center is already shifting its attention towards the Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II LTE and the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 duo. Those should be the next devices in the company’s lineup to get official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates.

Finally, Samsung confirmed that it will be delivering Android 2.3 Gingerbread Value Pack updates for the original Galaxy S, the Galaxy Tab 7″, the Galaxy S Plus, the Galaxy W and the Galaxy from the end of March. The update will be bringing Face Unlock and other ICS features to the smart devices that won’t be getting to taste Android ICS officially.

In case you haven’t heard, a new version of Angry Birds is being released. But unlike the original version we have seen on iOS, Android, PC, Google+, and Facebook, Angry Birds Space will be available exclusively to Samsung Galaxy Note. I could hear a chorus of consternation nearby.

Rovio’s latest creation was formally unveiled at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Angry Birds Space, as you can tell from the title, puts the laws of gravity and weightlessness into the fray of this physics-based trajectory game. Users will find a bonus level of play, as well as a free Danger Zone add-on, which consists of 30 levels that would be available to the public as an in-app purchase.

Angry Birds Space will officially debut on March 22.

Despite its oddball proportions the Samsung Galaxy Note phoneblet has manged to be quite popular among those with big hands (and pockets). The first million mark was passed in just two months after the launch of the device and now two months later since that event, the Galaxy Note has crossed the 2 million mark.

Of course, these are not the actual sales but merely the number of devices that have been shipped till date but nonetheless it’s quite an achievement for a device in a fairly new category that a lot of people believe shouldn’t exist in the first place. In comparison, however, Samsung managed to ship over 10 million Galaxy S II in the first five months. And let’s not even get into comparison with the iPhone 4S, which Samsung often chooses to mock in its ads, that sold 4 million units in just over the weekend after its launch.

However, Samsung has much higher expectations from the Galaxy Note. Talking to Forbes, it has revealed that it intends to ship another 10 million units before the end 2012
