Doesn’t it feel good to be a pure Google device
, even more when you’re part of the beloved line of Nexus smartphones? Well, if you happen to own a Google Nexus S
, you’ll be elated to know that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
is coming to you very quickly
– that’s if you own a GSM variant of the handset.
The good news came directly from big Google themselves, as they specifically mention that GSM/UMTS variants
of the Nexus S will be getting the tasty ICS update starting today
– with the roll out expected to go on throughout the course of this month. Obviously, that spells wonderful news to the AT&T and T-Mobile versions of the handset, but as far as the Google Nexus S 4G for Sprint is concerned, it’s anyone’s guess still on when it’ll get the anticipated update.
Clearly there are going to be a lot of people around the world, but let’s see how long it’ll take some of the other manufacturers to bring venerable Android devices up to spec. In any event, you’d better keep a close eye on your handset to see if that nifty notification has landed.
