It doesn't matter if you have 1Ghz or 2Ghz CPU. I really doubt samsung is willing to remove TouchWiz either just to fit the ICS update.

ICS was able to fit in the Nexus S since that phone doesn't have TouchWiz in it. Even if it only had 512MB RAM same as the Galaxy W.

I have noticed that when i receive sms on stand by screen, swippinf
the red mssg circle does not open the mssg instead a error notice appeal, i need to open the mssg manually, hopefully Samsung & Google take note on this, & have a software fix/update soon.

Can someone share whether you have same experience I suffered with my SGW where many software just stopped working resulting in missing out SMS and missed calls? Also when swiping screen, there is a shade of blue at edge?
