PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And another case of the internet apparently wielding more influence than it seems to. To much dismay, Samsung announced last week that several of its popular smartphones, most notably the Samsung Galaxy S, would not be getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. The internet backlash was palpable, and today, word on the street is that Samsung is reconsidering its position.

512 RAM?

Where the hell did that RAM limit come from?

The manufacturers always make up an absurd HW limitation, then Google has to go on record saying there are really no such hardware requirements from them.

Also, the 2011 Sony (Ericsson) phones are all getting ICS and they all have 512 RAM (128 of which is reserved for the GPU). And these phones have some customization too.
