Samsung has announced that they would not be coming up with the Android 4.0 update for their Galaxy Tab devices, something that caused quite a bit of stir among users of the company’s 2010 flagship tablet. There is however news that Samsung is reconsidering their stand and there is indeed the possibility of Android 4.0 ICS update being made available for the Galaxy Tab users.
Ajnews and MSNBC, both news casters based in Korea have confirmed this change in thought process on part of Samsung, which they say has resulted due to strong pleas raised by the users of the company’s first tablet device. The main reason for Samsung to have decided against the Android 4.0 update for these devices had been the custom UI that exists on these devices, namely TouchWiz. This software at present does not gel or is not compatible with the Android 4.0. Samsung has earlier cited hardware incompatibility for not upgrading the Galaxy Tab to Android 4.0. Of course getting rid of TouchWiz would be the easiest way out to have Android ICS on board the 7 inch tablet though what is also true is that its something that Samsung is least likely to do.
Samsung has not yet confirmed this bit of information though a word on this is expected soon.
