We've talked before about the process of how Android updates actually reach your phone. A point update to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus from Vodafone reminds us why getting updates can take longer than you expect.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
One of the best things about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is that it comes with a vanilla OS: no crapware and no bloated UI skin. But that doesn't mean that you also get updates directly from Google. If you bought your Galaxy Nexus from Telstra, Optus or Vodafone, you're not running the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich, and you probably never will.
If you want a brand-new phone running Ice Cream Sandwich, then you can choose from a stack of carrier deals for the Galaxy Nexus. But if you picked up its predecessor, the Nexus S, during its brief period of availability from Vodafone earlier this year, you might also be in luck.
The hugely anticipated Samsung Galaxy Nexus -- the first Android phone to officially run the awesome new Ice Cream Sandwich build -- officially makes its appearance in Australia this week. Of the three local carriers, who has the best deal if you want to buy on a contract? Planhacker runs through the numbers for Optus, Telstra and Vodafone.
