It seems that the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich beta) that is currently being tested by Google has run away from the freezer. I guess now people know what’s going on in the Google’s lair. Bum, bum, bum. That can be a good thing and maybe a little bad. Android Ice Cream Sandwich seems to be the next operating system for a lot of tablets except for Apple of course. You can see that both Android Police and RootzWiki have gotten hold of the leaked OS and have gotten a few snapshots, but covering the vital details of the project.
It looks as if Ice Cream Sandwich has some new features ,but also have the same ones that you would find in Honeycomb. It’s not fully 100 % confirmed that this will be the next major version of Android like how iOS developers are going from 4.0 to 5.0. Well that’s how it kind of is for Android just that it is going from 3.0 to 4.0. Google is trying to get out Ice Cream Sandwich before Apple releases their version of the new iOS 5. Right now Google is trying to make sure that this new version of Android can work on both tablets and smartphones. So it seems like the newest version of Android 4.0 won’t look super cool which brings doubts on people on whether if the photo is fake or if this isn’t a major update.
Apparently there are a few differences just by looking at the snapshots and comparing them to how Honeycomb looked. Google still wanted to keep the look of it very digital and a lightweight look.
These photos may be a fake or they just may not be. Who knows? We just have to wait until the real thing comes out. Look at the bottom slideshow for the snapshots of the the leaked images of Android Ice Cream Sandwich
