This is utter nonsense, Samsung is going along the same way as MIcrosoft, you want a new product then buy it... all the users should get the option of upgrading to ICS it they wish to.. if the Guys at XDA can make it work so does Samsung... Samsung need to remember its we the users who have their brands work and its time to show some gratitude towards us...

One thing worse than Samsung's behaviour is their excuse on their own inadequate hardware on a flagship product which is the same as ICS running Nexus S and their own resource hog TouchWiz which nobody wants or asked for!
I think that is it for Samsung. They will soon be relegated from consumer product vendor to component supplier of Apple, Sony!
I have a Samsung Galaxy S, and I won't bother waiting for a "value packed update" or even ICS... I've already had enough problems with this phone. So the only thing I'm waiting for is an entirely new phone, and not any of the new Samsungs either.. Their Battery Talk times are so terrible that they should have designed the phone with a permenantly attached power cord because it will be charging all the time anyway.
Don't know what all this will finally end up into, but just got an OTA for my Galaxy Tab 10.1 which upgrades it from 3.1 to 3.2, here in India :-)
Its the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (3G version)
Samsung says their products are better than apple... One thing I don't understand is how samsung can make such false claims.... Apple updates the software of even their outdated products like the iPhone 3G...... But Samsung on the other hand tries to cover its incompetence by blaming the hardware they themselves created.... Ask any galaxy s user about the crap Samsung loads in their phones in the name of touch wiz....no one needs that.. All we need s ice cream sandwich... And we r being given this crappy value pack... ... When icecrean sandwich runs flawlessely on nexus s how come galaxy's hardware becomes incompetent of running ics.... Software team of Samsung must give up their jobs and let xda members be in charge... They have ported ics brilliantly on galaxy s....
One more thing.... U certainly are doing a great job building up ur fan database....
A few more of such policies .... And within a few years Samsung will certainly dissapear
Uncle Sammy, 29 Dec 2011Please don't ive damn to these rumours defintely Samsung will give upgrade. But its up to the ... moreHi, sammy uncle.
thx for cheering or maybe u r the one that should be cheered ?
who purchases a phone thinking about whether it will be upgraded in 18 months or not, seriously though...
what about i9003? it ll be receiving icecream sandwich or the value pack?
damn cheap phone...hahaha,really UGLY design always same in every level prince
never interest to buy samsung even with high price
Please don't ive damn to these rumours defintely Samsung will give upgrade. But its up to the user to decie GB or ICS. GB is the most stable version until now from Google. But yes definetly there will be choice for the users.
Samsung never disappointed anyone and will.
This is wrong... value pack is based on ics not gingerbread.. samsung wont dissapoint us

AnonD-35689, 28 Dec 20113GS doesnt support all features IOS 5 has to offer.even so but at least its still running the latest software even though its not all of it
tan, 28 Dec 2011seems like my infuse got confused. nvm samsung you proved that you are no different than apple... moreat least apple lets you update their older phones (depending how old) to the current firmware
cotsios105, 28 Dec 2011what do you mean by adding new features to the phone u mean that the workers of sumsung can no... moregreat point i couldn't have said it better myself i got myself an iPhone 4 (the original) not long after android 2.2 (Froyo) was released because there was so many bugs in it that it rendered my SGS (I9000) nearly unusable and even though i said i'd never get an iPhone because of me playing around with a friends iPhone (the very first one) turned me off with the way it was so confusing until my auntie suggested that i have a play with it and the layout of the icons is a lot more better than the galaxy
these overlays has to stop... all have to provide stock android. it will be easier for them as well as better for the users.
