October 11th May Be The Day Google Gives Us Some Ice Cream Sandwich

By Kelly Hodgkins on at

Samsung is holding an event next week in San Diego and the star of the show is rumored to be the Nexus Prime. Coming along for the ride may be Google which could use this event to launch Android 4.0.

The Android Developer's YouTube Channel posted and then pulled down an "Android ICS launch" event video that'll go live in five days. ICS is short for Ice Cream Sandwich and the October 11th date coincidences with the Samsung Unpacked event.

A dual announcement like this is not surprising. The Nexus Prime is shaping up to be a monster of a phone and Google would be foolish not to showcase its new OS along with this smashing piece of hardware. [CNET]
