It's official: no official Ice Cream Sandwich update coming for Dell Streak 7

Although we knew that an official Dell Ice Cream Sandwich update would never come, the official word always stings a bit. Today, Dell's "Social Media Outreach" Twitter feed, @DellCares, confirmed what we all knew already. 

Here's exactly what the tweet said:

"@giveen Unfortunately, no plans to develop ICS for Streak7. See here if you are interested in unofficial version del.ly/6018RUTp -AB"

The link leads to a DJ_Steve YouTube video, showing off his pre-alpha ICS build for the tablet. 

Even though this is bad news, it was to be expected. That's the beauty of Android, though: developers can do basically anything they want with devices, and oftentimes support them way longer than the original manufacturer had ever even thought of. 

Thoughts? Cares? I honestly don't have many feelings on this issue since it was basically a given.

[@DellCares tweet] Thanks, Giveen!
