Samsung Galaxy S & Tab official ICS update Flip Flop continues

A few weeks ago, there was quite a buzz surrounding Samsung’s older Galaxy S & Galaxy Tabs on its upgradability to the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. At first, Samsung announced no plans to offer such upgrades but later retracted and is reconsidering their options.

Some are saying that Samsung will be releasing Value Packs as mere enhanced Android 2.3 Gingerbread update while XDA reported that it might be Ice Cream Sandwich with lite-version of TouchWiz.

Now it seems that the Galaxy S will not be getting anything at all according to the latest update by TNW, citing that hardware limitation that’s optimised for Gingerbread experience. There’s no mention of Galaxy Tab but it is likely to face the same fate as well. Is this the end of it? Or will we see another U-turn reaction again?
