Samsung Nexus S Owners Irked as Ice Cream Sandwich Update is Still Missing

March 15, 2012, By Sanjeev

As you all know, the Samsung Nexus S handset hasn’t yet got the Android 4.0 update. This, in effect, has left owners of the smartphone an irked lot.

Samsung Nexus S Owners Irked as Ice Cream Sandwich Update is Still Missing

The reason behind their complaint is genuine as the open-source code for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was published four months ago. Google had once released the official Android 4.0 update for the Nexus S, just a month after the posting of the OS’s source code. Unfortunately, Google was forced to pull back the update instantly, as the handsets were reported to have problems with battery and Wi-Fi capabilities.

After this, both the companies haven’t shown any keenness to roll out the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for the phone. Though users can root the phone and use a custom ROM, it is really irritating for them to know that Google hasn’t rolled out the formal update pack for a handset under the Nexus line up.

In addition to this, the control of Verizon over the new Galaxy Nexus and troubles with other CDMA phones have been a worry for Google and Android fans.

We just hope Google will realize customer demand and soon launch the Android Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Nexus S handsets.  Do you think that is going to happen soon?

    If after 4 months Google can’t update “Nexus S” for Ver2.6 to 4.0 I am not sure they are competent to make any future update to “GOOGLE NEXUS”.
