Nexus Prime Bluetooth certification revealed

It appears that the Samsung device by the name of Nexus Prime has seen its way to Bluetooth certification, this being one of the last steps, FCC certification as well as an actual official word from the manufacturer being next, before an actual release of the device to the public. This Bluetooth certification is but one of many puzzle pieces we've all been putting together on the puzzle that is the hero phone for Android's next big version, Ice Cream Sandwich.

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Each time Google creates a new version of Android, they work with a manufacturer of smartphones or tablets as well as a processor manufacturer to create a hero device to host a completely vanilla (otherwise known as totally nude, clean) version of their software. The most recent examples of this come in the Nexus S, out for sale now on three carriers across the USA working with Google's latest smartphone OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. For tablets, there's the Motorola XOOM, available as both a Wi-fi only device and a Verizon-carried device featuring Google's latest tablet-based mobile OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Though the XOOM isn't technically following the naming scheme, each Google Android hero phone is part of the "Nexus" line, the next of these set to feature the Android system to tie handsets and tablets together in one: Ice Cream Sandwich. While we still do not know the Android number (2.4 or 4.0), we have a collection of details on this device that's sure to get you salivating.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Pegged for October by manufacturer

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Pegged for October by manufacturer

It appears that the people behind the long-silent Notion Ink group have come back from the dead to note that they'd not only be adding Ice Cream Sandwich to their Android tablet "Adam", they'd be doing so in November, right after the launch date of the platform which is, they say, late October. Now it's not too much of a stretch to think that the author of this news release, Rohan Shravan, has just been reading Android blogs for the past few weeks and is just guessing that the rumors are true, but there is a point to consider: he's been right before. On the other hand, he's been terribly unreliable before as well.

Android Jelly Bean to follow Ice Cream Sandwich

Android Jelly Bean to follow Ice Cream Sandwich

In what can only be described as totally making alphabetical sense, J for Jelly Bean will follow I for Ice Cream in Google's mobile operating system line we're hearing today. This information comes from a tip given to ThisIsMyNext's Chris Ziegler and without a doubt is one of the most sparse tips we've published all week, this right next to the Nexus Prime (or whatever you want to call it by the time it's released) carrying what we expect will be Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. What Jelly Bean will hold for Android will likely be improvements over the Ice Cream Sandwich platform which is set to unite the two factions of Android, that being tablet and smartphone, in the coming months. Android Jelly Bean, coming up next!
