No Ice Cream Sandwich For Galaxy S And Galaxy Tab

Chris Velazco, writing for TechCrunch:

“Sorry Galaxy S owners — even though your device has a near-identical spec sheet to the ICS-friendly Nexus S, Samsung has announced on their corporate blog that the company’s first Galaxy device won’t be getting the offical bump to Android 4.0.
The original Galaxy S isn’t the only one to get the snub, as the 7-inch Galaxy Tab won’t be able to join in the fun either.”

Makes you wonder how the shiny, new Nexus S will fare in the coming year. Will it receive the follow-on version of Android?

Here's a handy chart showing Android device manufacturer's track record, and Apple's. Not looking too good for customers using the "open" mobile OS.
