I can't play the blaming game here but if I were to play it, Vodafone wouldn't be where I would point my finger.... It would be Samsung for not providing support to their product and neglecting it when launching the other 10.1 and disregarding this tablet as if it was never produced.
Vodafone can only assure network services (3g,4g, calls, texts,etc)
Samsung is the only responsible for device servicing

You could blame Samsung but you would be wrong. If Vodaphone had wanted ICS on the 10.1v, there would be ICS on the 10.1v. Simple as that.

Quite probably Vodaphone just doesn't care because they didn't sell enough of them.

I don't see how Vodafone would have anything to do with it since it's not their job to develop software.
Sure they could pressure Samsung and what good would come out of it? None because Samsung doesn't give in to "peer-pressure"
Vodafone's prime directive is to provide services and make sure the devices they sell work with their network. The moment something happens, they report back to Samsung with the issue which proceeds to the actual fix.

Vodafone makes most of it's money with the services and not with the devices...that's Samsung's turf. Just a small percentage goes to Vodafone and not a very significant one.

From the economic point-of-view, Vodafone doesn't win anything with pressuring Samsung in launching ICS to the Galaxy Tab 7100. And Samsung is launching this update so that their contract of providing updates within 2 years is met. This update is basically a big "shut up" shout to Vodafone and their clients.
And they won't launch ICS to it because this device is not being sold anymore so there is no point (on an economic point of view) to launch ICS.

In conclusion: Vodafone can't do anything and Samsung doesn't give a rat's ass

I am amazed at the way that vodafone has handled this. Completely unprofessional. There was no point in getting everyone's hopes up unless they were on the verge of releasing it.

I am pretty happy with the 10.1v on ics but I do wish I had the camera back. It is a reasonable camera on this thing. The one irk I have is the lack of accessories...

Dude, the 10.1v is not like any other branded device. This is not like for example a Galaxy S2 on Vodaphone - in which case you would be correct. This doesn't happen often, actually aside from the 10.1v I only know of a number of Sprint devices that have been sold in this way. In this case, Samsung will provide updates only when Vodaphone pays them to. But why do I even bother, you don't listen anyway.
