Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab after all?

Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab after all?South Korea’s favourite son, Samsung, recently announced the Sammo devices that are confirmed for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) action, but there were two notable omissions – namely the original Samsung Galaxy S and 7in Samsung Galaxy Tab.

As one might’ve expected, in the days following the announcement, Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab owners wept openly before Samsung’s feet, and resultantly the manufacturer is said to be considering a cheeky u-turn on its previous statement.

The news comes via Korea’s ajnews, which reports that Samsung has had a change of heart in response to strong customer demand. Samsung has yet to comment officially.

Last week, Samsung explained that both the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab play host to an abundance of deeply engrained Samsung elements, such as TouchWiz, making it super difficult to introduce Ice Cream Sandwich.

The manufacturer also cited RAM and ROM restrictions as a problem, and suggested that Ice Cream Sandwich stability on either the Samsung Galaxy S or Galaxy Tab was an impossible dream. Or is it?

This all smells very similar to the HTC Desire Gingerbread (Android 2.3) debacle. HTC initially said it was impossible, before backtracking and releasing the update. Sort of.
