Depends...and there is a difference when it comes with the GS. The GS cannot handle ICS along with touchwiz. If it was small enough, then I am positive ICS would be on the GS officially from Samsung. With phones including more and more memory, there shouldnt be a problem anymore.

So its not the lack of support like other upgrades before...its a matter of can it happen. Samsung is looking in to it but it doesnt look good.

Issue with this statement is that the SGS came with 2.1, got upgraded to 2.2, and then to 2.3, and almost got a half ICS pack though I agree 512 MB is a little low for ICS, so it didn't get ICS stuff. So by your logic, the SGS II WILL get an ICS and Jellybean update, and perhaps the next update after that too.

Nexus S is a similar phone with 512 RAM, yet its getting the update.
See the difference.
It doesn't matter if its nexus or not. People pay handsome amount of money and they don't even get supported for 1 and a half year.

Nexus S....no touchwiz taking up extra space and is updated by Google. And is why it is getting ICS.

Galaxy S...has touchwiz and apps that rely on that interface. Updated by Samsung.

If the Galaxy S didnt have TW, then it would be getting the update.

This sis a thing they should've thought when releasing the phone.
They never thought of the customers and supporting it after sometime.
This is the problem.

How could they think of the size of ICS when it was not even released yet and not much info known about it at the time? Cannot predict the future. And this is one of the things Google is working on and since it took them so long, it will take a while. ICS was the first step...will have to wait and see if things get any better. And with phones coming with more and more memory, this will most likely not be a problem in the future.
