Google rolls Android 4 updates to Nexus S, G Nex
Google confirmed Friday that it was rolling out Android 4.0 to the Nexus S, making it the first device outside of the Galaxy Nexus to get a finished version. GSM versions of the earlier reference phone will start getting the update over-the-air now and finish within a month. They get all the features of the update save for the on-screen navigation buttons they don't need.
Simultaneously, GSM Galaxy Nexus users are starting to get the same 4.0.2 update that their Verizon CDMA counterparts saw the day earlier. It mostly mends early bugs, such as some with the 3G and Wi-Fi links, but also improves the looks of the home screen and when using the front camera.
Google hasn't formally acknowledged 4.0.2 outside of Verizon and so hasn't given a timetable, although the smaller number of GSM Galaxy Nexus phones could see it complete faster.
