Being the priced low and that too the fact that this tablet is loaded with android 4.0 may be something which may be making its demand high. But for actual data we will have to wait a little.
Google previously released the Android 4.0 update for the Nexus Slast year in December but the Nexus S 4Gfor Sprint was left out. A couple of months ago an Android 4.0.4 ROM leaked for the device, which made people hope that the official OTA update would arrive soon but that did not happen.
And now, we have another leaked ROM for the Nexus S 4G. This will update your phone to Android 4.0.4, bringing all the features that other Nexus S users have been enjoying for months, it has also got some improvements to the WiMAX reception, due to the updated base band.
Google recently started giving the Android 4.0.4 update to the GSM versions of the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus S but not all have received this update, in fact few have actually received the update so far, with most choosing to simply flash it manually.
Latest version for the android phones and tablets is the ice cream sandwich. Well its something edible. Its the name given to the latest android 4.0 version. Few quick things to be looked upon as its main characteristics are easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and deep interactivity.
Android 4.0 makes common action more visible and helps you navigate through simple and intuitive gestures. it becomes interesting and keeps us engaged due to its refined animation and feedback throughout the system.Multitasking is a key strength of android and its made even more easies and visual on android 4.0
