It wasn’t too long ago that the official and final ICS build for the the Nexus S 4G was leaked and we knew it was only a matter of time before Sprint began to rollout the update to all devices. We just received word that the IMM76D update has began rolling out today and we even have a change log to go along with it. This will be the first Sprint phone to receive the illustrious Android 4.0 update and users can expect the following enhancements.
- A refined, evolved user interface that is simple, beautiful and useful
- Android Beam™: quickly share web pages, apps, contacts and YouTube™ videos with your friends by simply tapping two Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled phones together
- Redesigned camera, which introduces panorama mode, effects like silly faces and background replacement and a powerful photo editor
- Data Usage helps you avoid data overage charges by allowing you to instantly see your data usage for any period of time or any app – and get notified before reaching your limit; you can even restrict background data for individual apps
- Web browser now lets you sync Google Chrome™ bookmarks, request full desktop versions of sites, see your open tabs in a new layout and even store web pages for offline reading
- People: browse friends, family and coworkers, see their photos in high-resolution and check their latest status updates from Google+
- Improved keyboard with incredibly accurate typing, an inline spell checker and improved copy and paste support
- New Calendar app that lets you add events quickly, sync with Google Calendar™ or Microsoft Exchange and even pinch to adjust your calendar display
- Redesigned Gmail™ app that now lets you swipe between conversations to catch up quickly, and search for emails even without a data connection
- Google+ integration that lets you hangout and video chat with up to 10 friends using your front-facing camera
