Nexus S 4G

Android 4.0.3 delayed for Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S

Google's highly anticipated Android 4.0.3 update will finally bring Ice Cream Sandwich to the Nexus S, and hopefully fix a few bugs concerning the Galaxy Nexus battery life. It has been a real problem getting a full day of use on a single charge with Verizon's Galaxy Nexus - even with the extended battery. The update to ICS for the Nexus S has almost been perfected, unofficially of course, so those that are rooted may not see much of a difference. Unfortunately, the update has been flagged for further review.

Nexus S and Nexus S 4G get early Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs

Those lucky Nexus owners, they get everything sooner. In this case, it's a relatively stable AOSP version of Ice Cream Sandwich for the previous generation of Google's developer phone. The ROM is available for eager Android fans right now - the only thing that appears to be missing is a reliable video record function.

Ice Cream Sandwich SDK ROMs already in the works

Ideally, ROM developers wait for the open-source, AOSP version of the latest Android release before building a new ROM. But there is something of a work-around: industrious programmers can take pieces of the SDK and cobble together a working phone or tablet ROM. A good example is the various community-authored versions of Honeycomb based on its Software Development Kit. Now preliminary versions of Ice Cream Sandwich based on the recently-released SDK are already making their way onto the Nexus S.

Google Wallet launches officially on Nexus S 4G

It's the 4G version of the Nexus S that'll receive the update to Google Wallet first, Google tells us, this brand new NFC-based electronic payments system working with Visa, American Express, and Discover right out of the gate. This system will allow you, as you may already know, to tap your device to an in-store payment device and instantly pay your bill with your "Wallet". Your update to full alpha Google Wallet functionality will occur in an over-the-air manner, meaning that if you've got a Samsung Nexus S 4G, you'll be seeing a notification right away immediately if not soon.
