Samsung confirms 'no Android 4.0' for Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab

Despite Samsung’s reported willingness to explore ways of bringing Android version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to its original Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab devices, it would now appear all upgrade hope is gone for owners of said smartphone and tablet computer.

Moreover, Computerworld has today revealed an official statement from Samsung that seemingly confirms both of the above mobile platforms are simply unable to support Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

“A full update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Galaxy Tab (7-inch) and Galaxy S is not practicable due to hardware limitations,” rubberstamped the Korean electronic giant.

However, if you look at the wording of that statement (i.e., “A full update”), it seems to suggest Samsung is perhaps toying with the idea of bringing select Ice Cream Sandwich features to the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab—which supports related rumor regarding an Android 4.0 ‘value pack’.

After being pursued with regard to the possible delivery of a pseudo upgrade release, Samsung simply said there is no further information to offer on the subject at this juncture.

The plot it doth thicken.
