    What does ICS do with the hardware buttons on the S II? Does anyone know?

    • cosmix

      ICS disables the on-screen software buttons when it detects the presence of hardware buttons.

    And the original Galaxy S?

    what about i9000?

    Galaxy S and Galaxy S+ users shouldn’t hold their breath.

    What about the Galaxy Tab 10/1 – WiFi ? I got the 32G last summer. I’m in Canada, although I bought it in USA.

    Guess that means us Galaxy S (captivate) owners will have to rely on CM9. Of course it will probably be released before the official version anyway.

    galaxy s 2 skyrocket?

    • Kunal Gangar

      Its safe to assume all Galaxy S II variants will be updated to ICS but the roll out will vary according to region and carrier approval.
