Three will make Android 2.3.6 available for the Samsung Galaxy S next year, after scrapping plans to bring the older 2.3.4 version of Google’s platform to the handset.
In response to a Galaxy S owner's enquiry on Twitter as to the whereabouts of the long-awaited 2.3.4 edition of Android, Three stated: “We decided to release 2.3.6, which will be available in Jan. This brings more fixes than previous 2.”
Whether the Galaxy S will get the next major edition of Android, aka Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), when it starts making its way to phones other than the Galaxy Nexus or end up stuck on Gingerbread in perpetuity isn’t yet clear. But you'd have to say that it's lack of a dual core processor doesn't augur well.
ICS will, however, definitely be coming to the Galaxy S’s successor, the imaginatively named sales-behemoth that is the Galaxy S2.
