Samsung might backtrack on Android 4.0

Written by Nick Farell



Galaxy S and Tab might get it afterall


Samsung is apparently rethinking its decision not to bring Android 4 to the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab.

Earlier the outfit said that neither device could be updated due to the size of Samsung's TouchWiz interface.  The news created a bit of a stir with users sharpening scythes, pitchforks and lighting torches to go on a lynching. Now word on the street is that the company is considering backing down on its decision due to "strong customer demand."

Samsung said that the devices did not have enough RAM and ROM for both the company's custom TouchWiz interface and the new OS. However for some reason the Samsung Nexus S, which has the same hardware profile as the Galaxy S, can and will be upgraded to Android 4, since it doesn't have to support the TouchWiz interface and other services like video calling or widgets.

A Korean news site ajnews quotes an industry official as saying that the company is currently reviewing whether the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab can support Android 4.
