Samsung Nexus S 4G Ice Cream Sandwich update rolling out now

Alright, Nexus S 4G owners, it's your turn. After waiting on the GSM Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus phones, then the WiFi version of the Motorola XOOM, the CDMA Nexus S is getting its time in the sun with an official Ice Cream Sandwich rollout.

Android 4.0.4 leaked for CDMA Nexus S 4G

Owners of the GSM Nexus S were on top of the world last week, owing to the fact that an official Ice Cream Sandwich update had finally returned with Android 4.0.4.

BriefMobile broke the leak and is hosting the download.
