Re: Will Jelly Bean be released on the Tab?
I don't believe that statement about touchwiz to be true, either. Out of all of my Samsung Android devices that have had OS updates, I have not had any lag issues, but have had problems with the wireless radios.
I am not sure why you seem to have issues with touchwiz, but I have seen more people on these forums complaining about the issues with vanilla Android rather than touchwiz. Most complaints I see about Samsung's devices are hardware related somehow. Things like the amoled screens and lack of more memory.
My original tab I had came with vanilla honeycomb. Samsung added touchwiz with a later software update. I had some hardware issues with the tablet from day one, and so did others apparently, as the tab 2 was released with the exact hardware specs of the original (cpu, ram, storage etc.), probably to fix some underlying issues that couldn't be repaired with software patches.
My thoughts on the original tab possibly not being able to "support" jelly bean are based solely on whatever Samsung changed in the tab between versions 1 and 2.
I have read that there are nexus devices that were brought to their knees by jelly bean, so I have to believe that there may be some beefier hardware requirements needed to run jelly bean out of the box efficiently.
There is no doubt that if the tab was rooted and rommed, it could run jelly bean, I don't doubt that, but how much tweaking would be needed to allow multi window as well as other features to run concurrently on a device with only 1GB of system ram. Features that are considered a code part of jelly bean.
