Eric Schmidt confirmed: Autumn to arrive finally time to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, more precisely between October and November (by the supposed release date of iPhone 5, will be a chance?). After gingerbread and honey, then the time comes to ice cream sandwich, according to the promises that Google should integrate all the strengths of Gingerbread for smartphones and tablet Honeycomb.
Schmidt’s announcement was made during a conference organized by Dreamfroce Salesforce CRM. Joking aside, the decision to choose such a date for the release of the latest version of the green robot is certainly not only due at the exit of IOS 5 (and related devices) in that same period, but also by the arrival of new Windows 7.1 Phone Mango. With the competition gets stronger, in Mountain View could not possibly remain with our arms folded. Moreover, the approaching holiday season will be one of the most important battlefields for Google, Apple and Microsoft, for which no one wants to get caught with a gun on the most beautiful old and worn. With Ice Cream Sandwich, grosos Android solves a problem of fragmentation that has plagued in recent months. In fact, the difference between tablet and smartphone operating system had given rise to numerous apps are incompatible with one or the other device. The combination of both in Android 4.0 will make the whole range of software compatible with all devices.
To launch the new operating system will probably be launched with the new phone Nexus Prime, which many would simply be the next Samsung Nexus Galaxy. On this front, however, are only rumors and no official communication.
