If recent products such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 or the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet there will be entitled, two notable devices lack the appeal: the Galaxy S smartphone and Tablet Galaxy Tab 7.

The Galaxy S is the smartphone launched in 2010 which enabled Samsung to take a significant position in the market of smartphones, flowing more than 10 million copies and helping to make more visible Samsung on this sector with a reference model.

Similarly, the Galaxy Tab 7 tablet was the first one of the first to Android and to be a response to the Apple iPad tablet, launched in April 2010, and there also has to show that Samsung was ready to fight on all segments.

If these two devices have objectivemnt the equipment required to run Android 4.0, it is the presence of the wrapper touchscreen TouchWiz which would be responsible for the decision not to include these devices in the update program. TouchWiz or Android 4.0...mais not both at the same time.
