Latest Android 4.0 update news from Samsung
- 1/3/12 - Samsung Galaxy S won’t be updated to Android 4.0 – “value pack” or otherwise
after a brief rumor surfaced that the Samsung Galaxy S variants might see an update to Android 4.0 that stripped out TouchWiz to make room (basically the dream scenario), the hopes of millions of Galaxy S owners were extinguished like so many Alderaanians. (Too soon?). It wasn’t a terribly surprising decision, but considering this was the device that put Samsung on the map for Android users it would have been nice if they could have pulled it off.
