Google has released an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system update for Nexus S smartphones. The new update includes a number of optimizations and bug fixes for mobile phones and tablets running Android 2.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. One of the major changes is that contacts are now located in the Peoples menu, versus to the older Android 2.3 Ice Cream Sandwich release, where contacts were available in the Contacts menu. This new update allows for integration to the social network accounts (Gmail, Email, Google+, Facebook and others) your contacts may be using and monitoring the activities handled by your contacts in social networks from the same menu.
The new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update has improved calendar and camera capabilities as well as improvements in graphics, database, spell-checking, screenshot taking and the Bluetooth connectivity. Creating a new folder becomes even easier now – all you need is to drag and drop applications, contacts, and more on top of each other to create a new folder. Google informs that with the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich release you may need to upgrade some of applications running on your Nexus S smartphone to make them functional on the latest operating system version. The new version of Android Ice Cream Sandwich is supposed to be available this month for all Android users worldwide. The update was released just one day after the Verizon Galaxy Nexus was launched. Google also announces the minor upgrade coming for the users of the older Android 2.3 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
