    I have been hearing about android 2.3.5 since December but I could not find out when it would be released. Does anyone know when it will be GA? Once it is released, how do you upgrade the OS? Is it automatically pushed through the market place? Is there a place you have to go to request it? Are the OS patches hw dependent?

    As far as I was aware, aren't Google in the process of rolling out 2.3.4 to the Nexus S? I don't think they'll see 2.3.5 for a while.

    To upgrade, you can either do a manual check or it will be pushed automatically to your device. On my DHD, I can check by going in via the settings menu.

    Settings -> About Phone -> System Software Updates -> Check Now

    If an update is available it should let you know and ask you if you want to install.

    They are H/W dependant, kinda. Google, will tweak it for the Nexus, HTC will tweak it for their handsets, Samsung for theirs etc.

    Does all that help?

    2.3.4 came out last month - at least that's when it came to my Nexus.

    You're probably thinking Android version 2.5, which back in December was what people were thinking the version number for Ice Cream Sandwich. As we know now, Ice Cream Sandwich will be version 4.0.

    Android 4.0 is expected with the release of the Nexus 3, likely due sometime this November.

    So will all releases of the OS for the Nexus S be 2.3.x?
