Google Gives Workers Ice Cream Sandwich Update for Nexus S

One of the steps that Google goes through before a software update is let out the doors is internal testing. It sounds like the internal testing is ramping up at Google with reports that Google workers are receiving updates for Nexus S smartphones to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The updates will presumably be coming to the public in early 2012.

The process is being called dogfooding, which means allowing the workers to test the OS in a controlled environment before it ships publically. One of the workers talked, apparently too soon, about the update. One guy going by Adel put up two Google+ posts that have now been deleted.

The posts read "Just got Ice-cream Sandwich update on my Nexus S & it's looking great" and "Yeah an OTA, but it's an early one for Google employees so we test it further so it's even more awesome when you guys get it. So sadly I can't comment on it more at this time..." I wonder how much trouble he got in for posting those.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
