Nexus S to Get Android Ice Cream Sandwich, Google Confirms!
Fresh after the Android Ice Cream Sandwich announcement from today, Google let everyone know that the Nexus S will be among the first handsets to get the upgrade to the new OS. It’s pretty logical, considering the Nexus S was the first Gingerbread phone, so it has some priority…
As far as the Nexus One goes, this one is a mystery for now, when it comes to Android Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade. Google’s Gaben Cohen is claiming that the Nexus S will get this OS, while he and Matias Duarte also said that most Gingerbread devices will get their own upgrade of Android 3.0. Theoretically, the software should work on any 2.3 device, so that’s incredible news for everyone with such a device.
The problem for me is the way to dumb down the experience to fit it on lower end models such as the older Xperias, HTC Wildfire S and HTC ChaCha, that have below 1GHz CPUs. And what about the tablets? Are we to believe that Motorola Xoom has an upper hand here?
