Samsung Nexus S

Are you a Nexus S owner that's been wondering where your taste of Ice Cream Sandwich is ever since Google detailed the update in October? Wonder no more, friend, as Google has announced that it's going to begin rolling out Android 4.0 to the Nexus S over the coming month, and the upgrade starts today. Google's also gone ahead and thrown together a handy little guide for Nexus S owners upgrading from Gingerbread to ICS, showing users how to do things like take screenshots and view recent apps in the new version of Android. You can find that guide right here.

It's no surprise that the Nexus S is being updated to Ice Cream Sandwich, but it's good to see an update happening already, especially considering all of the attention that the Android 4.0-preloaded Galaxy Nexus has been getting as of late. There's no mention of when Sprint's Nexus S 4G might be joining in on the update fun, but it's tough to imagine that Google will keep those users waiting too long. If you've got a Nexus S and the ICS update makes its way to your neck of the woods, be sure to give us a shout in the comments below!

Skylor Mitchell People, the update is for the GSM version of the Nexus S. They do have an At&t version, but it's not as common as the GSM version for T-Mo. As for Google Wallet, I don't see why anyone would use their phone to pay for something, and I believe Wallet is a waste of data space.

David McClellan
David McClellan I'm guessing they're holding off on the 4G due to a lack of Google Wallet for ICS. Unless of course someone can point me in the right direction for Google Wallet for the Galaxy Nexus GSM. I know the Verizon version didn't get it.

Dakota Jayne just the GSM right now , not sprints 4g
