OK I found out that the 7/26 goo.im gapps is REALLY outdated. It contains some apk from ICS 4.0.x for calendar syncing and all the other APK are not from the official Nexus S release...but rather it's from the 4.1 leaked gapps that are very old.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
