Last year Samsung’s Mobile division announced its plans to upgrade some of the GALAXY line-up devices which includes the Samsung GALAXY S II and GALAXY Tab 10.1. This was the good part, the bad part is that Samsung GALAXY S and GALAXY Tab 7 (Original) are not included in this scheme due to Samsung’s personalized TouchWiz UI and low RAM on both handsets.
A couple of days after, new rumors emerged in which Samsung Mobile was reconsidering a possible upgrade for both SGS and GTab Original to Android 4.0 ICS OS or just a “Value Pack,” to integrate some of ICS features into SGS and GTab Gingerbread OS.
According to TNW (The Next Web), Samsung is not even taking in consideration a “Value Pack,” upgrade for the GALAXY S and likely GALAXY Tab 7 included. If it is true, this is like a punch in the face to the million’s who own one of these two devices. However until we hear something official directly from Samsung we recommend to take this with a pinch of salt.
I myself, am an owner of a GALAXY Tab 7 and honestly I’m getting fed up with this back-and-forth story, people need to hear an official statement from Samsung Mobile to clarify everything.
