Google Nexus S gets official Android ICS update

If you decided to buy Google Nexus phone earlier this year than you are a lucky one. According to the official Nexus Twitter account, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update started rolling out today and will continue for the rest of the month to your device.

The update will be made available over-the-air, so you can manually check on your phone or wait for the notification to appear. This version is actually the 4.0.3 that was just announced by Google and even the Galaxy Nexus is not running it at the moment. Update is only available to the GSM/UMTS version of the Nexus S for the moment and not the CDMA version used by Sprint customers in the US.
