Ice Cream Sandwich

This shouldn’t come as a huge shock, since Google had pretty much already promised that the next major version of Android would be available by the end of the year, but Google chairman Eric Schmidt has now pretty much confirmed that we’ll see Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich in October or November.

I guess that kind of rules out September or December, then.

Ice Cream Sandwich is the code name for the first version of Android that will be designed to run both on tablets and smartphones. Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the latest version designed specifically for phones, while Android 3.2 Honeycomb is the latest tablet-only build.

It’s likely that Google will also announce the next-generation Nexus smartphone when Ice Cream Sandwich launches. The HTC Nexus One and Samsung Nexus S are phones designed to showcase Google’s operating system with hardware to support all of the latest features. These are the phones that Google recommends for developers, but they’re also popular with many users because they come with the Android experience exactly as Google designed it, without any carrier or manufacturer customizations. These devices also tend to be first in line for major software updates.

  1.  Look-inside-dumbfounded [ ] … And it did happen as Schmidt predicted so far, that police did not find out who murdered May Zhou , which is very scary … Schmidt side told me: if they can’t win the case at judicial authorities, they could take my life as easy as getting rid of a bug … it is problems in Stanford Computer Science Department with their Professor Sebastian Thrun’s case that led to May Zhou’s death …  who actually setup order in Stanford Computer Science Department? … Thrun, Schmidt, Scheler, and Thrun’s bosses in Stanford Computer Science departmet are all in debt to Stanford student May Zhou’s death.

  2. When I disclosed his crimes, Eric Schmidt ran out of grounds and publicly sent me life threatening message,
    In Business Insider [ ]Eric Schmidt on Sep 2, 4:02 AM said :@Peter Cao: Peter. It’s me, Eric. I thought we already talked about this. I am going to squash you like a bug if you keep posting on this comment board. What you don’t know (but surely suspected) is that the video cameras I installed in your house are allowing me to track everything you do. In fact, I am live streaming your pathetic life, including all the insane searches you do about my home address and love interests, to all my friends on the Stanford faculty. Next I will bring in my mafia-like dark killing power to bear.
    ================================Eric, be you real or not Schmidt, so finally, your psychological defense was broken, now that your mind became insane.
    Didn’t I defeat you globally wherever you go? You still don’t understand, that’s because your deeds, killing the innocent and threatening the victim, would not be tolerated anywhere on this planet. Anyone would be alerted of this case when you assisted a Stanford Computer Science faculty Sebastian Thrun to counter Stanford ruling against him and to threatening me from fighting against your crimes, by threatening me with the real murder case of Stanford student May Zhou; in fact, police investigation had confirmed it is people on you (Schmidt) and Thrun’s side who murdered May Zhou, before I would post the case on the web. Quite a scandal unheard of in history of college education.
    I clearly aware your side is closely watching me though I am a powerless victim on the other side of the earth, because you fear me of my speech to the public about your crimes, crimes you dare not deny, but would drive you insane as you are now. I never search your address or personal issues, other than posting your deeds on the web, this time you are really irritated and finally displayed the evil you to the public.
    Have some manners please. That’s not going to save you of your fate as a loser … You still have to explain to the public of your crimes behind May Zhou’s case and plotted murder on me, which got you removed from your CEO position, and so You still have to face the legal conseqences; and so has Sebastian Thrun.
