We’ve heard in the past that the GSM-based Nexus S by Samsung has received Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but that roll-out didn’t last long and not all owners of the original Nexus S have the newest version of Android on their phones at this point. What’s worse, though, is that Sprint’s CDMA model hasn’t seen an official update at all. But, while HTC Vivid owners are eagerly downloading their own version of Ice Cream Sandwich, Nexus owners are left waiting. But that could be changing here shortly, if a new report from a “trusted source” speaking with Engadget is to be believed.
According to the source, Android 4.0 is coming to both the Nexus S and Nexus S 4G “in the coming weeks,” but that’s all the details they could provide. Honestly, we don’t have any reason to doubt this, but not necessarily because of the source, but because we’re seeing HTC-branded and carrier-branded devices getting the latest version of Android before a Nexus handset. At this point, if anything more than “in the coming weeks” is what is being planned by Google, then the world is in turmoil.
That may be a bit dramatic, but you get the point. So we’ll have to see if there’s an official announcement being planned along with this, or if we’ll just start seeing it funneled to device owners.
If you own a Nexus S 4G, what do you think of this whole situation?
