Google So, somewhere in the middle of the night (at least for me) Samsung and Google held a joint event, in which they announced both the new Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus, and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. While the Galaxy Nexus is a pretty impressive phone, what we got to see from Ice Cream Sandwich surely didn't drop too many jaws.

and I'll be able to install updates as soon as Google releases them, instead of having to wait 6 months for the vendors to feed it to me.


That's what I was thinking before buying Nexus One. After it took Google more than half a year to release 2.3 for it, I'm not so sure any more. Let see if 4.0 will be released for Nexus One. Apparently it should be compatible (probably quite slow)

If I remember correctly, Nexus S had problems with self rebooting 2.3 systems. So updating Nexus One that don't have most of the hardware that 2.3 was developed to support would perhaps not have been such a good idea until they had solved the problems.

I would also guess that they needed to develop other drivers for Nexus One than for Nexus S. Nexus phones usually gets updated if its technically possible.

As i remember Gingerbread was released in the middle of December and Gingerbread became available for the Nexus One on 22nd of February (you can check in the xda forums) ... SO your "more than half a year" is just not true.
