The next version of Android is getting set to be released as many people have been claiming and rumors have been suggesting. Now we have it straight from Eric Schmidt, that we can expect to see Ice Cream Sandwich coming in October / November:
“We have a new operating system, internally known as Ice Cream Sandwich for some reason, which is being released in October/November, which everyone’s really excited about.”
Ice Cream Sandwich, which is supposed to end the fragmentation between Android’s smartphones and tablets is a much anticipated relief to tablet owners less then impressed with Honeycombs UI. Honeycomb is the latest OS for Android powered Tablets as Gingerbread is the latest OS for Android powered smartphones.
The comments made by Eric Schmidt come at the 30:25 mark of the following video taken from an exchange between SalesForce.com CEO Marc Benioff and Schmidt.
The end of the year is shaping up nice for Android Fans with a possible Ice Cream Sandwich powered Nexus Prime?
