Well I get my 8.9 Tuesday. I got a refurbished one for $300. I know it comes with Honeycomb 3.2. Now I am assuming that ICS will not be released for the 8.9 or any other tab 1 until the Tab 2's come out. So is it safe to assume that ICS on these Tab 1's will not happen for at least another 1-2 months?

That depends. If you're Tab is the WiFi version only, you can download an unofficial ICS rom in the Android Development forum. If it's the AT&T LTE version, we're mostly likely going to have to wait for the Samsung update (which should be in a few months, hopefully.)

That's what I figured. I don't think Samsung would release it before the Tab 2's are out. Both the 7 inch and 10.1 inch version. If I had to gues ICS for the 8.9 will probably come late May....

Correction: there are ICS ROMs for the 7300 and 7310 by the Galaxian Soup team. The only caveat is that we're still waiting for camera drivers.

On the AT&T LTE version, you are probably correct.
