Anonymous, 10 Aug 2011I just hope this comes to my Optimus 2X reasonably fast...lol you still havent got gingerbread and you are hoping that ics will come quickly xD
Hi Guys, What do they mean by "no customizations and home-brewed UIs" Does this mean no more "Launchers" I'd bt stuck with the ugly Samsung UI? Lol. Man it's ugly compared to the modded version.
Ice cream sandwich, how clever! I wonder what they will name their android OS after they release Zebra sliced waffle. Google will run out of letters, if they ever get there, I mean...
Well its good that this update can take the full use of the dual-cores but I don't think that it would be cool that every single Android handset will look the same. Customized UI's make the unique which is why there is a much difference in company. They make it to suit the mobile design and style. If they do this it then it won't matter much that which company you buy they all will be the same and UI customization also helps to increase the benchmarks and performance like the Xperia Arc it is faster then some handsets which have the same hardware and gingerbread 2.3. Well I think it would be a negative point for Android OS. I know that the developer community would still customize it but most of us want the Official custom UI's.
Anybody else think that this should be "Android 5.0"? Like Winamp, they're taking the best of v2 and v3 for the next big release - 2+3 = 5! :--D
I wish this come up to my LG OPTIMUS 2X!! make it real good n fast!
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2011I just hope this comes to my Optimus 2X reasonably fast...Ur optimus 2x wont get it till next year! not sure if you know but LG/moto are very fucking lazy when it comes to updates of android to their flagship.... GL but i dont see it happening for long long long time

Ashura, 10 Aug 2011I hope Google does not rush the release of ICS to match the realease of Iphone5(4G etc)since r... moreWell Google is doing that exactly.
They feel the heat of iOS 5 and WP7 Mango releases, so maybe they are doing this because the don't wanna lost ground in OS Market.
Maybe they know something we ignore about the next OS releases. Maybe Market can change...
There will be a lots of maybes in the next weeks.. :D
Can`t wait 4 this . Meanwhile may i just say :
Adieu Nokia and rest in peace †
Metalloy, 11 Aug 2011will the galaxy s2 get the ICS update?Yes it will. Just expect around 6 months or more before it gets available for the SGS 2.
will this make android on mobile phones support the dual core processors they all seem to tout these days?
Anon, 10 Aug 2011You won't even see this unless you're running a dual core. More fragmentation for developersAnd the OEMs will take more than 6 months to port this newest version of Android to 2011 devices while 2010 devices won't get upgraded. XD
