Eric Schmidt Spills the Beans About Ice Cream Sandwich Launch

Android OS is no doubt the leader of all mobile operating systems and currently Google is working on Android 4.0 a.k.a Ice Cream Sandwich, which was announced back at Google I/O. It’s actually going to be a one-size-fits-all OS for both mobile phones and tablets. We heard rumors that it will be out somewhere around October or November but nothing is better than the official words right from the mouth of the Executive Chairman. You heard it right, Google Executive Chairman and former CEO Eric Schmidt said something so brilliant during the Dreamforce Conference:

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

Yes! We are all excited about it, right people? October is just a few weeks away so we should see Google release the SDK soon and then we just might get the highly anticipated Google Nexus Prime, which is rumored to be the first ever Ice Cream Sandwich device, in time for the holidays. We also saw some leaked shots of ICS but the shots seem to be of an early version if you ask me.

A lot is coming boys and girls, and I have a feeling that Google has a lot of Android stuff up their sleeves. So folks, tell us what your thoughts about Ice Cream Sandwich are in the comment box below. Are you waiting for it anxiously? Check out the video after the break for the whole interview, and the real fun starts after 30:25.
