Android 4.0.4 Rolling out to Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Xoom WiFi
Ladies and gentleman the update for Android 4.0.4 is officially rolling out for the GSM Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S as well as the Motorola Xoom WiFi variant in the US. Seeing as though we solely use the GSM network in Australia we will see the updates to our GSM-enabled Nexus devices arriving sooner rather than later. None of us here at Android Australia have received the update as of yet, however, it is said to be rolling out as we speak. We can’t be sure of how long this will take to reach our shores down under but at least we know the update is ready. If your Nexus is updated by Google you can expect the update very shortly, however, if it is updated by the carriers there may be a waiting period of up to a few months – sigh.
The Xoom WiFi variant in the States is also having the update pushed out, yet there is no word yet in regards to Australia.
The Xoom WiFi update supposedly includes these enhancements:
Quicker screen rotation
A new setting to choose whether the power button immediately locks the device or not
Microsoft Exchange improvements with additional EAS policies
Better phone number recognition
Camera and image quality improvements
We can assume that the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S updates will include similar updates, especially as the Nexus S will finally be receiving the ICS update. If you can’t wait for the Nexus S update we’ve found a link on the mighty interwebs that will lead you to install it early. Check it here!
Has anyone out there received the update(s)?
