Ice Cream Sandwich Just Looks Like Roboto-ised Honeycomb on a Tablet

By Sam Gibbs on at

We've seen Ice Cream Sandwich on a smartphone, but what about on a tablet? It's meant to unite Gingerbread and Honeycomb into some sort of franken-Gingercomb, but will it just be Honeycomb-like on a tablet?

Engadget's got a nice little run through of what Android 4.0 looks like on an emulator of tablet size (embedded above). By the looks of it it's basically Roboto-ised Honeycomb with a few nice additions like customisable gestures for launching stuff and the the ability to finally quickly kill apps from the multitasker. Evolutionary on the surface of it for Honeycomb-users, but we'll have to wait till we get our fingers on some actual hardware running ICS before we'll really know. [Engadget]
