ICS Port Surfaces For The Nexus S
Just as we said a few days ago when the ICS SDK and sources surfaced across the web, it was simply a matter of time before we started seeing devices with ports all across the web. The first one that apparently showed up during this past weekend was the port for the Nexus One. Now, it was brought to our attention that several other devices are getting ports although a few of them are having some issues getting off the ground. The Nexus S seems to not be having this problem because XDA member HAKA has released a working port for it. As it has been the case since the beginning of time on xda, the ports are always works in progress, but this one seems to be doing rather well to be so young (about 4 days old and counting). It seems that the core functionality is all there including a buggy but usable camera, 3G, and a few other things that are normally broken in most ports, until they get fixed, that is.
Again, do not expect this to be a “working out of the box” kinda deal, but you can certainly get a taste of what is yet to come before the year end hits. Please take it for a spin and leave some feedback so that the dev can keep ironing out the bugs.

Google Drive for Work, Google Apps for Work (paid edition), Education and Government customers will not be affected by these changes and can continue using...
One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
