Android Ice Cream Sandwich Coming Soon – One OS to Rule Them

Eric Shmidt, Google’s Executive Chairman, more popularly known as “droid daddy”, recently confirmed Android’s next iteration, Ice Cream Sandwich at the Dreamforce conference in San Francisco. The time frame for the release for this version is slated to be sometime between October and November this year.

“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”, said Shmidt.

One of the most striking features of Ice Cream Sandwich is the fact that it combines the functionality of Honeycomb (Android’s tablet OS) with that of Gingerbread (Android’s current smartphone OS). This means that when you buy an Android device – be it a tablet or smartphone – you will be guaranteed of a streamlined experience.

While most features of the new OS remain under tight lock and key, some of the features demonstrated were real-time face tracking and voice recognition, greatly enhancing the camera’s focus shifting feature.

According to reports, the first device to tout the all new operating system from Google will be Samsung’s Nexus Prime. Sony Ericsson will follow suite, as it is expected to bring all of its existing 11 Xperia smartphones (all touting Android 2.3 Gingerbread) to the latest Andriod OS.
