While the region awaits the launch of the Android 4.0-powered Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google is said to be issuing over-the-air updates (OTAs) of the latest Android operating system to its employees who own the Nexus S as part of an internal testing.

According to The Verge, news first appeared on Twitter and Google+ posts which were shared by Google employees. Initial impressions of the updates were positive, though most of the comments have since been deleted.

Some of the new features in Android 4.0 include a refined animated lock screen that allows you to access the camera function without unlocking the screen, a customizable favorites tray where you can drag apps, shortcuts and folders for quicker access, and improved text input. 

Being a Google-branded device, it is highly likely that the Nexus S will be the first to receive Android 4.0, followed by the other Android vendors. HTC, LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson have confirmed a list of phone models that will receive the update, although no details have been shared with regards to release dates or regions.
