Android Ice Cream Sandwich launch date confirmed…then pulled

Share

Android-Ice-Cream-Sandwich-banner.jpgGoogle have inadvertently confirmed (and swiftly puled) the launch date for the latest build of Android, 4.0 or otherwise known as Ice Cream Sandwich.

The October 11th release date was revealed via a placeholder page on Google’s YouTube channel before quickly being removed by the administrators. If a rare livestream on the Google YoutTube page wasn’t cause for suspicion enough, the placeholder page was titled “Android ICS Launch”.

The 11th October release date seems to be pretty solid now, what with it coniciding with Samsung’s Unpacked event on the same day. Here Samsung are expected to reveal the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, or Nexus Prime; the first handset to ship with Google’s latest mobile OS build.

Ice Cream Sandwich will be Google’s first mobile operating system that will work seamlessly and efficiently across both smartphones and tablet devices. Google are claiming it to be their “most ambitious release to date”.
