Samsung recently announced the list of devices that will receive the new Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich update in 2012. However, the list did not cover the Galaxy S (I9000) or the original Galaxy Tab (P1000) which irked a lot of users.
Samsung has now justified why it cannot give the Ice Cream Sandwich update on both the devices. Galaxy S maybe similar to the Nexus S but Samsung says the smartphone and the Galaxy Tab run Samsung specific elements like TouchWiz UI, video calls, Samsung widgets, carrier and country customizations that makes difficult to run the new OS smoothly. The RAM and ROM storage are also an issue, Samsung said.
