Good news! Life Of Android has been invited to an ‘event’ on 11 October in Los Angeles where we heavily suspect Ice Cream Sandwich will be revealed in full. Bad news! We can’t go because we’re stuck in London.
If we were ever going to use a sad smiley in a news report, now would be the opportune moment. We won’t though, we’re proper journalists.
The ‘Samsung Unpacked, Google Episode’ event is scheduled for just over a week’s time inside the Ballroom 20D at the San Diego Convention Center. Even though we’re stuck halfway across the Atlantic, we plan to live blog what happens in full for sadomasochistic kicks and your convenience.
In other Ice Cream Sandwich news, an ebay user has reportedly bought a Nexus S handset running the hotly anticipated smartphone OS on the auction website and made a video containing the biggest changes. Apparently, we can expect a huge UI overhaul, a new multitasking menu, a Google Apps icon and more shortcuts on the bottom bar.
If this is a well-constructed fake, we’ll know in just under a fortnight.
