Google Resumes Android Ice Cream Sandwich Rollout on Nexus S

Technology outfit Google has resumed rolling out the much awaited Android 4.0 (more commonly referred to as the Ice Cream Sandwich) updates to the Nexus S, the company confirmed.

The Mountain View based Android maker officially announced via its Google Plus page that the update is finally ready and will be made available for the devices in the weeks to come.

"We're rolling out Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, to GSM/UMTS Nexus S devices over the coming month, starting today. Enjoy the tasty update! Once you get the update, check out some tips and shortcuts for getting started at the Android 4.0 Help Center:", stated Google.

The update was already being rolled out the company until earlier this week after which it was forced to suspend it in the wake of complaints coming from various corners regarding an unexpectedly faster battery drain out following an upgrade.

Apparently, the battery life on certain devices started declining almost dramatically after they were upgraded to the Ice Cream Sandwich. The issue inevitably compelled Google to put a halt on issuing the updates and look into the issue with caution.

It seems that the issue was confined to only certain devices or Google has managed to resolve the issue promptly.
