What's this?

I thought that Nexus phone will ALWAYS get update directly from Google?

So, if you buy from T-Mobile, there is a chance you need to wait from T-Mobile as well?

I don't get it.

NOTE: Before people shouting that this should be put specifically to the Nexus One forum. I think this is still valid information for us, who will buy Nexus S just because of the Google experience, like the old Nexus One. Hoping to get first update directly from Google when Google releases any new update. Apparently, that might NOT be the case! Well, hope NOT *finger crossed* ...

I cant speak for the rest of the world but US customers always get their updates directly from Google.

I have a Nexus One right now and have gotten 3 over the air updates directly from Google.

you can always root the phone and load the stock built from google. But being an android enthusiast i rarely do OTA as you lose root and have to wait, i rather wait for devs to build new roms or optimize the official roms.

Regardless if the Update is pushed from Google or pushed from Samsung it will be the First phone to get it, quite possible along with the N1 so what does it matter?

Im pretty sure Google can handle the software and OTA's on their own, they did well enough with the N1

I didn't say they couldn't. I prefer Google handles them because I am still sitting here with a Fascinate running 2.1

Vodafone had a different build of Android for the phones they directly sold, I believe. No massive changes, but the update process is in their hands for their N1s
