Mobile news can move pretty fast, but there's enough of it out there that we seldom write two stories updating developments on the same subject on the same day.
But such has been the PR fiasco surrounding Samsung's very public debate over whether to produce an Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy S that we're happy to break our normal practice.
Earlier today we brought you up to speed that Samsung has been forced to review its earlier decision to exclude the Galaxy S (and the original 7in Galaxy Tab, for the record) from the list of Android devices that can expect an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich over the next few months.
The initial decision, we reported, had been met with such a wave of protest from the millions of Galaxy S users out there that Samsung had reportedly been stung into a change of heart.
Now it's looking like Samsung's solution is to dish up a Value Pack offering many of the features found in Android ICS, but without delivering the full package that it says the handset simply can't cope with. Among those elements said to be present are improved web browsing, multi-tasking, and new widgets.
The problem, though, is that even the name 'Value Pack' smacks of Samsung trying to get away with giving users less than they've been promised, which is pretty much what all this is about in the first place.
Would anyone really have had that much of an issue had Samsung come out in the beginning and said Android ICS would be heading to certain devices, while certain others wouldn't be getting the full update but would be given as many of the key features as they could support?
Or would that be too much like treating us like adults?
