Google Employees Getting Ice Cream Sandwich Nexus S OTA

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has made its way to the “dog food” stage of its development on the Nexus S. “Dog fooding”, for those who don’t know, is where a company uses their own staff to internally test a product before they release it to the public.

In this round, it’s Google’s previous flagship phone. We suspected an ICS update wouldn’t be too far out, and this step validates our suspicion.

According to the source, the update is coming to internal users via an OTA update, no special update process or PC required! This could change when the final release comes out, and we don’t know if the updates are going out to just the GSM version of the phone, or if Sprint 4G phones are getting it, too.

Regardless, it’s good news that ICS might be coming to more users sooner than later.
