The Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade should be coming to the Samsung Galaxy Note in the U.S. quite soon.

At a recent media event, AT&T displayed the device running the new software.

"AT&T is currently holding a little shindig at CTIA in New Orleans," said 9to5 Google. "During the event, the company put a Galaxy Note on display running Ice Cream Sandwich."

Android Central was in attendance and filmed a short video of the Galaxy Note running the new software.

"The only real difference seems to be in the menus," added 9to5 Google. "At any rate, if you have held off for ICS on your Galaxy Note, it looks like the update is in the pipeline."

Rumors of the Android software coming to the tablet-smartphone hybrid have been surfacing on the internet since December of last year, and now it seems like it is finally time for the major U.S. carriers to begin rolling it out.

Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades have begun to roll out for many of Samsung's devices overseas including the Galaxy S2, however, the U.S. seems to be last on the company's priority list.

AT&T recently blamed the delay in getting the software to new devices on Google.

"Google determines what platform gets the newest releases and when," said AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson in a recent Q&A session. "A lot of times, that's a negotiated arrangement and that's something we work at hard. We know that's important to our customers. That's kind of an ambiguous answer because I can't give you a direct answer in this setting."

Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich debuted on the Galaxy Nexus in December of last year.

The handset launched as a Verizon exclusive, but now is available to Sprint customers.
