you can discuss this in one of the many existing ics threads...
you can blame Samsung USA for this. although Samsung Korea put a lot of effort into updates for the i9000 all of the American galaxy s counterparts have been slow on updates and are lucky to get more than one major update. also the infuse is based on the galaxy s which is almost a year older. when the subject of ics on the galaxy s came about Samsung stated that they didn't have the rom storage or ram to run ics with touchwiz over top of it. while the infuse has the ram it has identical partitions to the galaxy s and has even more usage of the current rom storage.
on one hand Samsung played that game with gingerbread. saying they "might" update the i9000 to gingerbread but then it became the first non nexus device to receive the update internationally. on the other hand they have the s2 as a new flagship with the s3 on the way and might not want to continue with the dated i9000. basically if the i9000 doesn't get ics we have zero hope.
now that that's over with, can we keep the discussion to gingerbread or pending update related talk please.
