    Ice Cream Sandwich update to start rolling out a couple of weeks after Galaxy Nexus release | This is my next...

    Andy Rubin has put that schedule (for ICS to arrive on existing devices like the Nexus S) at a couple of weeks after the Galaxy Nexus arrives on the market

    But how long will it be in Sprint's hands before they release it to us?

    I could be wrong, but I read Rubin's statement as saying the updates will actually start rolling out to devices 2 weeks later. I based that on the line of questioning:

    when will it get to devices that are already out?...Andy has put that schedule at a couple of weeks after the Galaxy Nexus arrives on the market

    Jrd,

    I kind of agree with you. I know Google and Sprint are partners now but with the sale if the IPHONE on the sprint network i just don't see this update coming in a few weeks after the release of the nexus phone. Sprint has pretty much sold its soul on the IPHONE and i would not be surprised if apple told them to not push this until a few months after the announcement. Lets be honest I'm sure apple knows it competition and i would be shocked if this was release to us in November.

    Probably one of the biggest reasons I picked up an HTC Arrive (along with lack of hardware acceleration). Sprint doesn't even like Windows Phone, but Mango didn't take 4 months to get to my phone.....


    I don't think I could ever see myself going back to Android (still carry my Nexus S 4G in case things turn around one day tho) because of all the fragmentation that's is going on with that platform; its a mess that actually works for these companies because Android has become the new "hip" like the iPhone was/is (I know people who would call their Galaxy S II devices "Droid" STILL because of that marketing campaign launched on Verizon like two years ago it seems....

    As long as the end consumers are willing to throw up the cash...why bother giving them something we can make them pay for with a new phone with a FEW spec bumps...sad...i guarantee my Arrive could run circles around the Galaxy Nexus when it comes to scrolling with no lag, animations, etc...; the only advantage it would have to make my phone look worse or "slower" is a nicer larger screen that detracts from actual usage and speed...

    If Sprint was all about the iPhone, SPRINT Nexus S 4G users wouldn't be the only ones with Google Wallet.

    Nothing will be in Sprint's hands.

    Wtf?

    If Rubin said a couple weeks it'll be a couple weeks. For you non rooted folks at least.

    I think it will come out the same day source is released for it.

    My prediction is mid November.

    Sprint doesn't touch Google Phones. They would just have to collaborate the radios; and, since they've had the S for months now I could see this being forecasted. When Google says it's coming it's coming. Not going to Sprint.

    My bad, you are correct. I was thinking about how we lost the ability to tether when we received a recent update, but like you said they do collaborate the radios.

    The whole loss of tether, I'm sure, was just a Sprint telling Google they need to do something about it and stop it from happening without payment. I don't think Sprint actually ever touches the software.

    One of the huge points of having a nexus phone is that updates don't have to go through the carrier.

    I'm actually going to unroot for ICS. No, I'm gonna stay rooted, lol. But I'm not gonna run any custom roms or kernels. Not going to need it. (Then again, imagine what the roms are going to be like for ICS. Please stop me.)

    I was running CM7 nightlies and then the stable 7.1 build. They were buggy but I miss them! It's like being rich and having everything and going back to nothing. Haha, <--- Dramatization.

    No, really though. I miss some simple little things from Cm7; but, right now I'm stock with Netarchy. If it weren't for voodoo colors I'd be on the stock kernel right now. If I get bored I'll probably mess with Cm7 again. But, ICS has almost everything if not everything Android was missing and the custom roms were filling the gaps in for.

    However, I could only imagine what others will imagine and add onto it. .

    Anyone notice how smooth the browser looked? MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    I really like the Galaxy Nexus. However, I still like our phones better. Just wish it had the same specs. The OS is what it's all about really. I'll get new hardware next year.

    I don't think that it has much to do with sprint really, ICS is pure Google so sprint doesn't change anything... and i'm pretty sure it is pushed from google servers, but I may be incorrect!?

    All Google All Day.

    I'm surprised Google doesn't have; or, haven't purchased their very own network yet.

    They've been bidding like mad for wireless spectrum, but couldn't beat the existing tel-co's. They did get a n "open spectrum" requirement though, so they're on the right track.

    In addition, they did get a license for Super-wifi (the old TV spectrum) so I could see a new phone with calls over telco and data over Super-wifi in the not too distant future.
