Samsung explains why SGS and GALAXY Tab 7 will never receive official Android 4.0 ICS OS upgrade


After Samsung announced its 2012 list of devices that will receive an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software upgrade a lot of users felt frustrated with the South Korean handset manufacturer decision to exclude the best smartphone of 2010 Samsung GALAXY S (I9000) and the first 7″ Android tablet GALAXY Tab 7 (P1000).

Company’s justification is that both SGS and GALAXY Tab Original apparently do not have enough ROM and RAM memory to run Android 4.0 OS smoothly. This is due to Samsung specific programs like TouchWiz UI, Samsung widgets, video calls, carrier and country customizations, said Samsung.
