The Samsung Nexus S  and Nexus S 4G is getting an ICS update, again! In our words:

I like starting my day in the early morning with a good news, hmm no, great news, don’t you? I’ll just fill you in with the news so that you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee and have a great start today, so here goes.

Back in early January Nexus S 4G update to Android 4.0 was put on hold due to some problems found while the software update was on its way to customers, which means that we kind of knew about a reschedule of ICS rollout by Google for this version.

We found interesting a video comparison of the new iPad versus the Asus Transformer Prime. Here’s what we said about that:

An ongoing debate has started ever since about how a dual-core processor with only 4 graphics cores like the Apple A5X is capable to outperform a quad-core processor with 12 graphics cores  (Nvidia Tegra 3). Watch the video! 

We saw a leaked version of the ICS update for the HTC Rezound. Here’s a cut from the article:

Today’s trend in the mobile world and especially for Androiders is the latest OS upgrade from Google – Ice Cream Sandwich, an Android version released four months ago (November 2011) but still missing on most of mid-range to high-end devices.
