Google Nexus S 4G maintenance release packs "enhancements to improve performance"

Google Nexus S 4G maintenance release packs
Not only is the newly available Samsung Replenish getting an unexpected software update already, but it appears that the Google Nexus S 4G is also getting its own dose right at the start.

Although it’s not anything major, the latest maintenance release for the pure Google device for Sprint carries along only some “enhancements to improve performance.” However, it’s not explicitly stated as to what those enhancements exactly are – but either way, it’s probably an ideal decision to install it. From the sound of it all, the whole download and installation process should take roughly 5 minutes to fully complete, but it’s still a good idea to back things up prior to installation.

Again, if you haven’t you received the notification, you can manually initiate the over-the-air process by simply going into the Android settings menu. Some might question why we’re seeing an update so soon for the device, but it seems that it’s better to release it after launch as opposed to delaying the handset’s release altogether.

And people are still complaining about slower 4G and bad calling reception. I don't think its software but crappy hardware that cant be undone without a massive recall. It must be Samsung sabotaging its own Nexus just to make the Epic 4G and the Samsung Galaxy S 4G on T-mo that much better. Too many blemishes is stacking up against Samsung!
