Samsung Galaxy S not getting Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0

Samsung certainly doesn't seem like they are in the Holiday spirit as news has broke that they will NOT be upgrading the Samsung Galaxy S to Android 4.0. This news is really a surprise given that the Nexus S, which in every sense is simply a Galaxy S with stock Android, is getting ICS RIGHT NOW. According to Samsung Tomorrow ICS + TouchWiz would simply be too much for the Single Core 1GHz Hummingbird CPU. We are extremely disappointed in this news and will keep tabs on further developments.

Hopefully Samsung can have a change of heart (like HTC did with the HTC Desire and Gingerbread) and maybe could come up with an alternative upgrade instead of a widespread OTA roll out. The HTC Desire which is identical to the Nexus One was slated not to get Gingerbread. After the uprising of several HTC customers HTC reversed their decision and made available a Gingerbread update that was to be downloaded at the user's discretion instead of an Over the Air Update.
