Back to it After the teacher has spoken
screen shots just in
Well what a mess really they should be a screen shot of gingerbread version and then we can do a spot the difference
The stock one is from the Samsung Galaxy Nexus
Thankfully XDA are working on a Stock Launcher so you can then install and choose stock Android or Touchwiz but this does not look good
some of the key features are still there ish the screen that shows what's running to get to that you have to press the home button then you just swipe them off the camera app looks the same as the old ginger bread but has the new features on it
These comments from a Samsung Engineer
So perhaps we should start a list what is there and what's not
But here is the most upto date date form Gsm Arena

I wonder how many members are going to be dissapointed by the lack of visual difference that having TouchWiz launcher in place will make?
Flavours of Android is what makes it interesting, and TouchWiz has some strengths. The Clock and Calendar Apps are the best I believe. Also the lack of impact on the System is also a major winner compared to say, HTC Sense that of late has been a System Hog.

There are reports that Samsung are developing a TouchWiz 5 launcher with emphasis on less obvious visual differences whilst retaining the Samsung flavour.
We shall see...
TBH TouchWiz isn't that bad. It's something people can only control with their wallets though!
I actually like the colourful graphical nature of TouchWiz, but as N-dj said previously, the look is getting rather old!

Soup the rumours are right there is a touchwiz 5 on its way but it sonds like it will be on the S3 as there looks to be no home button Grrrrrrrrrr
The opinion of my local service centre were well nothing to right home about
They even tested it on theer boss who after five mins found out it was ICS he said what rom is that
He was then told, He said OOOOHdear
The XDA lads are bevaring away on this, Ramad one of the rom developers said that test are good at the moment
It will be pagaged as a apk so we can use both, but he said some developers at first wanted it just for there custom roms
so we all might see the laucher
The HTC version seems to be a better Launcher they have listerned

If you are on XEU firmware you are on the current firmware. (2.3.4)
VOD firmware is currently on 2.3.5.
However the Samsung ICS firmware is currently being rolled out. The UK XEU ICS firmware rollout should start on Monday. So try and connect via kies on Monday and you should be offered ICS. The VOD ICS firmware will be rolled out via OTA when Vodafone have added there bloat to it.

i was on 2.3.4 gingerbread before I upgrade my firmware. And it is still 2.3.4 after I upgraded. I am in UK. So ics is out right?
As stated 2.3.4 on your phone is still the latest firmware when kies offered you the update it would of told you what the update was, did you see what it offered you ?
Not herd of this
I would wait for Monday and see what happens
