Android Ice Cream Sandwich incoming

Will Google launch Android 4.0 alongside Samsung's Galaxy Nexus?

We're gearing up for the – probable – launch on 11th October of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (until yesterday named the Nexus Prime) but could we have a Samsung Unpacked bonus to look forward to in the form of a new Android OS?

It's looking likely, as the official Android Developers channel on YouTube just put up a countdown to the launch of Android 4.0. TechCrunch noticed the blunder, which is even headlined Android ICS launch, before it was taken down.

Ice Cream Sandwich should be available on older 'droid handsets and if rumours are to be believed, it will combine the tablet and mobile UIs of Honeycomb and Gingerbread into one all-powerful Android OS. Other tweaks are set to include a new app launcher and panoramic camera mode.
