But they are leaving out a bunch of phones, including my Samsung Infuse.

Sorry if this may seem a silly question, but quite frankly I have no idea what the answer is. I am new to tablets, only had the Samsung 7.7 for 7 months. Love it and...

Really want to go to ICS (have Honeycomb right now) so thrilled about the news ICS is coming. Upgrading the OS is a BIG thing. So how do you back up your whole tablet to anything? My cloud account is only 6.5Gb, the card slot is in use and the SD card probably needs to be there. Previous experience in IT says you always back up comprehensively before something major like this - but it isn't as if I can just whack an external tape drive on.

A USB cable connection - version 2.0 - will take forever.

And then, how would you back up? Or is a feature of the upgrade to guide you through a backup procedure?

Any thoughts or links would be welcome.
