Talk about Samsung putting its foot in its mouth. After previously putting a lump of coal in the stockings of Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab owners, the company is since reconsidering the thought of not upgrading the devices to Android 4.0. Why you might ask? Well according to The Verge, the company will review the “viability of the upgrading those two devices in response to strong customer demand”. While Google mentioned previously that Android 4.0 can hypothetically work on any 2.3 device, Samsung famously said there’s not enough room on the Galaxy S and Tab’s RAM or ROM for both ICS and TouchWiz. That alone sparked much controversy and criticism on the part of Samsung because most feel while TouchWiz is a great UI skin, it should not be a reason to not update the popular devices especially as they are still popular worldwide. Moreover, Samsung has been quoted as saying “it’ll investigate ways to try and make it work”.
When there’s a will, there’s a way. Perhaps the company saw how HTC famously reversed their stance on upgrading certain devices to Android 2.3 just six months ago after immense criticism as well. We know the fine engineers at Samsung can work their magic and make everything work smoothly. After all, if they didn’t do it, we’re sure some crafty developers would port ICS to the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab in no time. Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab owners, there’s now a glimmer of hope for you to see Android 4.0 someday. It may be faint hope, but it’s hope nonetheless.
