Google employees getting a bite of Ice Cream Sandwich on the Nexus S
A few Google employees took to various social media outlets to brag about receiving an internal OTA update that puts Ice Cream Sandwich on the Nexus S. Apparently they must have taken their joy to the web a bit too early, because over the course of the day, most of the postings have been deleted.

It seems that Google is definitely dogfooding this update, which is when a company tests a product prior to releasing it to the public in order to correct glitches and bugs. Since it seems that official info is tight on this one, we’re left to speculate on how soon we could see Ice Cream Sandwich available to everyone on the Nexus S.

As the U.S. patiently waits for a release date on the Galaxy Nexus – the first phone to officially run Android 4.0, some are wondering if the Nexus S might be sporting Android 4.0 before that release even happens.
