Google begins to push out Android 4.0.4

Earlier today Google’s Jean-Baptiste Queru has given word that Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 will soon be available through the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). This build apparently brings about an incremental update with “a few hundred changes over Android 4.0.3,” although it is not yet clear what many of these changes are.

Some Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi users have received the update already and users are reporting faster screen rotations, better Microsoft Exchange support, improved camera and video performance, a new lockscreen delay after the display has been turned off setting and various bug fixes and stability improvements.

It is up to OEMs like Samsung and HTC to push out the Android 4.0.4 update to their devices but Google launch devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S,  as well as the previously mentioned Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi are currently being updated.

Kitguru says: Many Android devices will never see the light of Android 4.0.4 but it will bring welcome improvements to those that do.
