Purported Ice Cream Sandwich ROM Looks a Tad Fake
A week-old YouTube video started making some noise this past weekend which is said to be a nearly three minute look at how Ice Cream Sandwich looks on a Galaxy S II handset. In a nutshell, it’s awesome, it’s slick looking, it features the Google apps launcher and more. Unfortunately, it’s probably also fake.
We’ll share the video with you (after the break) just so you can judge for yourself, but we’re pretty certain the stuff we’re looking at here is not the hotness we’ll be getting tomorrow night. For instance, the way in which widgets are added looks nearly identical to how things operate on Gingerbread, differing vastly from the video that surfaced a week back. The app launcher across the bottom doesn’t match up, nor do we see any sign of the three navigation buttons from the earlier videos.
If anything, this goes to show the customization that is possible with Android. Should your phone not end up seeing Ice Cream Sandwich, at least you can find peace in knowing that some of the best stuff can be added piece-part.

Looking forward with the assumption that the store launches in the near future, let’s examine a few reasons as to why it’s good for Android in genera
