Ice Cream Sandwich, the much talked about but barely glimpsed Android OS, has surfaced online in the below video found by Engadget. Apparently an unsuspecting fellow ordered a Nexus S off eBay and received this surprisingly enhanced version packing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
As you can see from the unlocking to the vertical multi-tasking menu, there’s plenty of Honeycomb in this particular Ice Cream Sandwich. Another interesting addition – other than the useful four icons at the bottom of the homescreen – is the Google Apps icon. This suggests the latest version of Android will be far more Google integrated with less reliance on phone memory and more cloud-based access. A great idea with Amazon’s Fire utilizing The Cloud and rumours of Apple’s iPhone 5 packing iCloud treats.
Of course this could all be an elaborate hoax, a very, very elaborate one – but either way it’s likely this is the way Android will be growing when Ice Cream Sandwich is unveiled in the next two months.
