Looking for a bunch of anxious Nexus S 4G owners? We've got 'em

If you've got a Sprint Nexus S 4G and have been waiting on pins and needles for your Android 4.X Ice Cream Sandwich update that supposedly was dropping Feb. 16, it's time to get some sleep. It didn't happen. And we're really not that surprised.

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Updates happen when they happen, and they don't happen until they happen -- regardless of what some internal web page might say.

And for everyone asking why tablets like the Acer Icona Tab A200 are already getting while the Nexus S 4G -- a friggin' Nexus phone! -- doesn't yet have it? It's simple: The Nexus S 4G is not the Acer Icona Tab A200. It's a smartphone. It has cell radio stuff to content with (and CDMA at that). That's just the way it is, folks

The update is coming. Of that, we're (pretty) sure. Do you want it now? Or do you want it right?

Anyhoo. If you're one of the many anxious Nexus S 4G owners waiting on ICS, you're not alone. In fact, we're having jackets made.
