Well we fall into the 18 month upgrade policy with the Nexus S 4g to Jelly Bean?

Well on May 9th 2011 Sprint and Google released the Nexus S 4g onto the world. The original Nexus S (gsm) was released on December 16 2010. So for the Nexus S4g should fall with the time frame of the 18 month upgrade but the regular Nexus S does not... So will we get it? I think Goog may say that well no since the original Nexus S shipped in Dec 2010 but since it was about 5 months late to market with the cdma nexus s 4g that should as i think get us an official update to JellyBean. If we do not get it then we should mail in jellybeans to google hq and demand an official update. Granted we can wait for the devs to get something but would it only be asop which to me sucks since no *#*#code#*#* codes are supported in asop which is a deal breaker for me.

I think if the nexus s 4g will get it the gsm nexus also will get it as they have the same hardware exept the radio. And the radio doesnt affect the performance so if ns4g gets it we also will get it. (My opinion)

I'm sure devs will do something even if both don't get it.

This. But I think the NS can definitely run JB, if they won't bloat it with RAM usage, we have plenty of system space for even a bigger OS.

anyone notice that if you take the ics stock non rooted it is slower way way slower then GB? I then rooted the phone and then flashed and stock ics that is rooted and that was slow still. I then re wipped again and flashed the performance mod from the stock rooted ics and its a bit better but still just a tad bit slower but not bad. i hope that JB is faster... I think that JB will be android 4.1 and not really 5.0 sort of like how windows 7 is not version 7 but version 6.1

First off, the 18 month policy doesn't actually exist. Google proposed it last year but it never took off. Sure, some companies said they would support it but it has been since been thrown to the wolves.

One of the best things about Google phones is that they are well supported. That is why I wouldn't fear that we will not get Jelly Bean.

Even in worst case scenario if there is no official update from Google, there will be plenty of unofficial ROMs, built from original sources.
