Galaxy S owners still have a glimmer of ICS hope
Alright Galaxy S and original Galaxy Tab owners, prepare for another whip in the wind of Samsungs mood swings! As I’m sure you’ve heard, Samsung’s buzz in regards to delivering a tasty Ice Cream Sandwich to us in the form of a Galaxy S update has been, “No, we won’t” “Yes, we will” “No, we won’t” and now, thanks to the uproar of users who are rightfully upset, they’ve swung back to the “Yes, we will” side of things. Although I’m already running ICS on my Vibrant, I’m ecstatic for stock users, even if they are still in the “Internal discussions” phase.
The kicker in all of this is the reason they are having trouble at all. You’ve met the Nexus S, the less popular cousin of the Galaxy S. It runs pretty much identical hardware, with the exception of the NFC chip, and Nexus S users are enjoying their updates already with no problems. So why aren’t Galaxy S users as quick to get updates? Their OEM TouchWiz bloatware, that most people I know replace with a different launcher anyway. Apparently, even though 512 MB of RAM is plenty to support ICS, it can’t also manage the bloatware Samsung has packaged with their Galaxy S devices.
While Samsung has once again said they’ll find a way to deliver ICS, we’ll believe it when we see it. So is anyone out there using a stock Samsung Galaxy S? Do you think Sammy will come through with ICS? Let us know in the comments!
