Samsung has been very late for determining whether its Samsung Galaxy S will be getting and upgrade to Android 4.0. Even though its been a year and a half of launch with Android 2.1 Eclair, the device now gets a Gingerbread update. Recently Samsung announced that some of its Galaxy devices will be getting a Android 4.0 upgrade starting March next year. Since the fate of Samsung Galaxy S of getting the Ice Cream Sandwich was unsure, lots of Samsung Galaxy S users are disappointed.
But the mighty developers at XDA have released a stable release of Ice Cream Sandwich for Samsung Galaxy S. This is sure going to cheer alot of Samsung Galaxy S users. The latest update is a Release Candidate (RC1) so it won’t be very smooth like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone. Here’s a video of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running on Samsung Galaxy S I9000.
