Android 4.0.4 Begins Rolling Out To GSM Models Of The Nexus S And Galaxy Nexus

Owners of the HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus, GSM Nexus S, and Xoom Wi-Fi should be noticing Android 4.0.4 hitting their devices sometime this evening. The update, which just began rolling out earlier this afternoon, brings stability improvements, better camera performance, smoother screen rotation, improved phone number recognition, and more. Google announced the update on their Google Plus page, earlier this afternoon.

We’ve started rolling out Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich, to UMTS/GSM Nexus S, Xoom Wi-Fi, and HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus devices, and we’ll be rolling it out to more devices in the coming weeks. Some of you will be receiving Ice Cream Sandwich for the first time, while others will be receiving an update to your existing Ice Cream Sandwich experience with stability improvements, better camera performance, smoother screen rotation, improved phone number recognition and more.

The 4.0.4 update isn’t yet making its way to the Verizon LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus, which is disappointing many. Along with the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus, users are also hoping for Ice Cream Sandwich to hit their Galaxy Note, HTC Thunderbolt, and more — but no new timeline has been given. However, while it’s not officially supported, Ice Cream Sandwich can be installed on almost any rooted device.

We’ll let you know when Ice Cream Sandwich makes its way to more devices, but if your device is in today’s update, make sure you check it out.
