Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich To Galaxy S Devices After All

It appears that Samsung is rethinking its decision to not bring Android 4.0 to all Galaxy S devices (Phone and tablet).  The company started to rethink its decision right after announcing it due to “strong customer demand”.

When Samsung announced its list of devices that would receive Android 4 by March 2012, the popular Galaxy S smartphone and Galaxy Tab tablet were missing from the list.  Samsung stated that the Galaxy S devices did not have enough RAM and ROM for the company’s custom TouchWiz and the new OS.  By contrast, the Samsung Nexus S, which has the same hardware profile as the Galaxy S, can and will be upgraded to Android 4, since it doesn’t have to support the TouchWiz interface and other services like video calling or widgets.
