Google’s Android 4.0. -ICS- ICS is short for Ice Cream Sandwich
So the Android 4.0 OS will be a unified OS whereas right now you have Gingerbread for phones and Honeycomb for tablets. Ice Cream Sandwich will be a single OS for both kinds of devices, with the user interface adapting to suit whatever form factor you are on. This unified codebase also means developers can code their apps just once and they will work on Android 4.0 phones and Android 4.0 tablets. Google can offer a bunch of new APIs so that developers can then code apps for every kind of Android 4.0 device. Rumor has the launch in November but the Android Developer’s YouTube Channel posted and then pulled down an “Android ICS launch” event video that’ll go live October 11th. Right now everyone will just have to wait for the Ice Cream Man!
