When Samsung came out and announced that no update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich would be provided to the Galaxy S, the Android community got a little heated. They backtracked a day later and said that they would consider a “value pack” of sorts that would give users something for not getting the bump to ICS. Now, rumors are dashing those hopes as it seems like no upgrade of any kind is on the horizon for the original Galaxy S. A Samsung spokesperson said that the phone likely will not get the upgrade due to the hardware limitations, saying that they are “limited to and fully optimized for Gingerbread.”
I can only imagine that this is going to make the situation worse than it was originally with getting hopes up and then coming back with a worse answer than before. The Galaxy S was a huge seller and many people still own the phone in a 2 year contract. Will Samsung really deny this huge swath of customers an update of any kind?
