Google’s next version of their operating system would be known as Ice Cream Sandwich, where the launch date did not accompany its announcement at the Google I/O event earlier this year. Guess all of that is going to change now, as Google’s chairman, Eric Schmidt, has just revealed that Ice Cream Sandwich will roll out this October if all goes well, and if things go pear shaped before that, there is always November to depend on.
What’s so special about Ice Cream Sandwich? Well, it will bridge the gap between the current two Android operating systems – with Android 2.3 Gingerbread targeting smartphones, while Android 3.0 Honeycomb being good with tablets. Ice Cream Sandwich will demolish these boundaries, uniting both kinds of devices with a single operating system, making things more efficient from the developer’s point of view, while providing less headaches for those who want to upgrade their firmware.
Whatever the case is, we look forward to the next Google superphone known as the Nexus Prime or Nexus 4G, which is said to ship with Ice Cream Sandwich in tow.
