Late last week, Samsung announced that it won’t be updating the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Tab to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, even though both the devices are more than perfectly capable of running it. The company stated that it cannot fit all its TouchWIZ related enhancements and Ice Cream Sandwich on Galaxy S and Tab. The Nexus S packs similar internals as the Galaxy S and Tab, and is receiving its Ice Cream Sandwich update at the moment.
The company faced quite heavy criticism from more than 15 million Galaxy S customers. In fact, ever since Samsung’s announcement, Galaxy S/Tab owners all over the globe have started online petitions so as to force Samsung to update both the devices to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Now, according to a Korean website – ajnews – Samsung has backtracked its statement and is currently evaluating to see if it can manage to install Ice Cream Sandwich on the limited memory available on the Galaxy S and Tab.
