A couple of days ago, Samsung officially confirmed that it won’t be upgrading the Galaxy S and the original Galaxy Tab to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, due to ROM and RAM constraints on the device. This came as quite a shocker for many, since the Galaxy S and the Nexus S have similar internal hardware specs, and the latter got its ICS update just last week.
Ever since Samsung’s announcement, various blogs over the Internet have slammed the company for its decision. It is quite clear here that now Samsung has made all the money they could with the Galaxy S, the company is no more interested in bringing software updates to the handset.
This news particularly did not go down well with the 15 million+ Galaxy S owners, and they have started online petition so that Samsung releases an official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the handset. Galaxy S owners, and other readers, who would like to show support to this petition can do so by signing it up here and here.
