Last week, We announced that Samsung will launch a VPU or a Value Update package that will for the Galaxy S I9000 Users, that will Offer them the same experience of the ICS but in Gingerbread (browser, multi-tasking... etc) instead of the CORE ICS 4.0.1 OS Update which samsung said it "could not run smoothly on the galaxy s older hardware, and will not deliver a good experience to the user".
However, a Samsung spokesperson today has said that the company will NOT offer the (VPU) update either due to the hardware specifications of the older Galaxy devices, in that they are limited to and fully optimized for the Gingerbread experience only. The news will frustrate Galaxy S owners that had gotten their hopes up following recent reports, They won't get the ICS nor the VPU, with many still on a two-year contract, they were hoping to see new features on the device.

Samsung launched a new software update for its big Galaxy Note smartphone. Unfortunately this firmware version does not bring Ice Cream Sandwich rather it comes with a number of tweaks that overall improve the phone capability.
- Keyboard now has five rows with the number row being always visible. Moreover, there is a new "one hand" mode that shrinks the layout, making it easier to type with one hand only.
- Preinstalled torch widget that supports three different brightness levels you cycle through them by continuously tapping the widget.
- Ability to set different brightness level for the browser, saving you some battery juice along the way.
- Improved lockscreen with arrows around the padlock, encouraging you to swipe to unlock. A line of text telling you what to do has also been added.
- Calendar app now supports different date formats. If you are not born in Europe you are probably not used to the day/month/year format, so you may want to change that.
