Android Ice Cream Sandwich arriving within two months

Internet search engine giant Google has had its CEO state the next version of the Android mobile phone operating system, known as ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’, will be arriving in October or November this year.

This news came from the customer relationship management software company Dreamforce conference this week, where Google's Eric Schmidt ousted the arrival date on stage in a keynote presentation with the CRM giant’s CEO.

It is the first time the shipping date of the much awaited successor to Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 has been established or clarified in anyway – which was caught on video, on the YouTube channel.

Ice Cream Sandwich was officially announced as the new version of Android back in May, at the Google I/O developer’s event in America; although it’s still not known as yet if this will be under the release number of 2.4 or another set of digits.

Traditionally, Google rolls out their new OS onto their own named handsets first and foremost, where the Google Nexus One was the first phone to arrive with Android ‘Éclair’ 2.1 and the Nexus S shipped with Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3.

It has been reported a new Google Nexus ‘Prime’ handset is due at the end of this year, which OneMobileRing expects this to arrive with Android 'Ice Cream Sandwich' and before it is deployed to any other device.
