    Earlier, Mathias Duarte said we'd get ICS on our Nexus S 2 weeks after it came out. The source code dropped on Nov. 14, so we should get it Nov. 28. (Although, I'm not holding my breath)

    Only time will tell.... I'm sure Google is just as interested in getting ICS out to us as we are... We will be the " beta " testers sorta speak before ICS rolls out to the newer devices, dual cores and UI overlays like TW or Sense... So I'm sure they want it in our hands for general feedback and bug findings as soon as they can get it to us.

    I think Verizon is going to screw everything up... doesn't look like they are in a hurry to release the Nexus and I don't think Google will push ICS to older devices until all flavors of the Nexus prime (or whatever) are in the wild.

    Well, the nexus one got 2.3.x gingerbread before the nexus s was available globally and on all carriers. So, we'll see. Guess work only goes so far.

    Hmmm, I did not know that, I was all webos back then

    ICS is primarily why I jumped off the webos bandwagon, but honestly GB isn't all that bad... I don't know why I waited so long. Anyway, I'll just patiently wait with fingers and toes crossed.

    I could see ICS hitting the International version of the Nexus S by the end of the month, but I don't see Sprint approving the update for our phones that quickly.

    was gonna chime in with this as well....

    Another thing that we should be leary of is its not just google pushing the update.. we have to have sprints blessing (which i think is garbage for a "pure google" phone)... so.. let just hope we get it before 1-1-12!

    Sprint only has to get two apps working on our phones and whatever associated binaries there are, before they could release an already built for Nexus S ICS update to us.

    And if I am not confused, Google will take care of the binaries.

    Sounds like you know what ur talking about... i wouldn't argue. That would be awesome!

    Just out of curiosity, what 2 apps does sprint need to get working?

    I would hope that Sprint and all the other carriers would be given early access to ICS so they could test and verify. Again, only time will tell

    I am not saying it won't take Sprint forever to bless the build. Just saying, they really don't have much to develop.

    I'm putting my money on xda having a working wimax before sprint once we get a full release for nexus s lol It seems we should be able to use the gingerbread wimax settings files over again as long as the drivers needed are there, and don't we have those from gb already, as well?

    Is the camcorder working yet? That's what's keeping me away.

    Since when do you need Sprints blessing? When marketing the phone Sprint acknowledged this was a pure Google phone so all updates will be handled by Google.
