Our friends over at rootzwiki have come up with some images of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The OS looks like it’s getting pretty polished and maybe a late Sept/Early Oct will happen. The news says it’s an early beta, so you will find more to come. It would fall right in tune with Iphone 5 and Google will want to keep as many customers as possible right about then. Here are some notes on ICS:
Some features of ICS that we know (from our source and speculation):
- Blue Themed – Like our site (Change theme on bottom)
- Camera has built in panorama mode
- Will launch with Google Shopper and NFC Enabled devices will be able to utilize those features
- Gmail is all rethemed
- Will be available for the Nexus S
- Nexus Prime gets it first (expected) then other devices will follow after
- Not too many changes, just UI things, don’t think requirements are set too high for year old devices to run it
- The little icon in the bottom right, looks like a tray with multiple apps in it
- Google search bar embedded on very top like Honeycomb
- Apps/Widgets launcher a lot like Honeycomb
- This release is still very early, notice the theming of the power tray
Note: there are also two images from Androidcentral.
