Google's Ice Cream Sandwich

OK, I thought it was a joke, but it turns out that Google is about to come out with an Android called "Ice Cream Sandwich". I can't seem to find much about it - has anyone heard anything?

I like the names Google gives to Android versions, all these are desserts items. The only thing we know about Ice Cream Sandwich atm is that it will run in every device from a tiny Android smartphone to a 10 inch tablet and we are expecting to be released on Q4 2011.

Remember Verizon had the Chocolate phone? Then they came out with a red one and called it Cherry Chocolate, and so on. It's just a cute name to get us to love it

I really love the way their minds work at Google. If you get the chance to watch a video about the HQ take it. They really sound like a great place to work.

So what exactly is the Ice Cream Sandwich? What features is it supposed to have? I really like the Android phones. They seem to have so many unique features compared to the iPhone and others available.

I have seen it, Bonnie! That would have to be the ultimate dream job! They even get to bring their dogs to work with them!
