With today’s announcement of the latest build of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, we’re guessing that there are many eager Android users who can’t wait to get their hands on the latest build. We know that HTC has plans to start working on bringing Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 to their more recent devices first, but what about everyone else? While this is in no way a release date for all Android devices all around the world, at the very least Android users will know when is the earliest they can hope for the update.
According to Andy Rubin at the AsiaD event, he revealed that the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 build would be released first on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (that’s a given), and after a few weeks of the Galaxy Nexus being launched (which is expected to be in November) only then will it go out to other Android devices. What this means is that without taking into consideration that the update will first have to go through handset manufacturers and carriers, we can at the very earliest expect the update to hit by mid-December.
