Android 4.0 ICS tablet interface discovered inside Galaxy Nexus

Android 4.0 ICS tablet interface discovered inside Galaxy Nexus

Back a few months ago there was a discovery made by an intrepid developer inside Android's Honeycomb OS in which changing the LCD density to a smaller value than the tablet it was running on had revealed a smartphone interface for the otherwise tablet-sized OS - one day after the USA-based Galaxy Nexus has been revealed here in the USA and our pal Michael Crider from Android Community has discovered that essentially the same thing happens in reverse with Ice Cream Sandwich. What Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is meant to do for the Google mobile OS is create one single OS that works just as well for handsets as it does for tablets, but until now we've got less than an adequate look at what this means for larger screened devices.

As filmmaker Joe Lancaster sends us a tip on, the clip in the video we saw this morning certainly does include at LEAST the image of a smartphone of some sort with the three pins for inductive charging on the landscape side of the device, while behind the smartphone may well be a secondary device that's slightly more hidden from view. Seem wild enough to be true?
