Before we begin, note that we said this same thing back in June on the first
. It appears that Texas Instruments
will be first in efforts to graphically represent their support for Android's newest operating system, Android Ice Cream Sandwich
, a system Google promises will meld the handset version and the tablet version of the Android mobile OS together with two layers of lovely chocolate sandwich bits. What Texas Instruments has done today is show one frame of a slideshow (shown below) to publishers that its representatives are calling a promotional image that Texas Instruments will use for events "in the fall." This more than likely means that Ice Cream Sandwich will indeed be released before the end of the year and that we'll see some powerful new chipsets coming out with TI before 2012 arrives as well.
