The confirmation has been caught on video – we’ve embedded it below. The video is an hour long, so you may want to skip to 30:20 to hear the Android-related details. In case you can’t do that, here’s exactly what Google’s chairman said:
“We have a new operating system, internally known as Ice Cream Sandwich for some reason, which is being released in October/November, which everyone’s really excited about.”
It doesn’t look like Mr. Schmidt knows too much about how internal Android names are given, does it? Or maybe Ice Cream Sandwich won’t be the final name of the OS’ new version? I find that rather hard to believe.
As you may already know, Android Ice Cream Sandwich will run not only on phones, but also on tablets and other devices. The first smartphone to be launched with Ice Cream Sandwich will most probably be the Samsung-made Google Nexus Prime.
