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 Crider shows here, it's a rather interesting experience that everyone should have.

Adobe Flash Player updates for ICS, Galaxy Nexus users rejoice

Just a few weeks ago when the international edition of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was released, we were just thunderstruck over the idea that Adobe Flash Player was nowhere to be found - not on the phone or the Android Market - what we get to see today, on the other hand, on the day of the release of the Verizon version of this handset, is an update to that app and a free download on the market, right in the nick of time. This should come as no surprise, at least that the download would be available eventually, but as users will tell you: it's nice to see that Adobe wasn't just breathing smoke.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus gets interactive support simulator, help with Android 4.0 ICS

Though the differences between the original Galaxy Nexus that's been released a couple of weeks ago by Samsung internationally and the Verizon 4G LTE version of the handset are few, Verizon has gone above and beyond the call of duty in creating an interactive "this is how you do it" page for the device's relatively new software. What you'll be able to do on this Samsung Galaxy Nexus support simulator is find out how to access and use everything from Phone Calls to Android Beam, all of this fully activated and ready to go on the handset set to release SOON (tomorrow, if you believe the whispers from above.)

Galaxy S II Android 4.0 ICS official early update leaked, TouchWiz intact

What you're about to see is a video of a person using the international edition of the Samsung Galaxy S II with what SamMobile blog says is the first build of Ice Cream Sandwich made for the device by Samsung - what you'll notice here is not just that the device has the newest version of Android on it, but that Samsung's own custom user interface has been fully integrated. When we first saw the TouchWiz that's closest to what you're about to see, it was way back at the start of 2011 at Mobile World Congress (and the famous CTIA Philip Berne event) with the launch of the original Galaxy S II (aka the one you see here), then again in a slightly updated version here in the USA. What this represents is Samsung's continued reliance on said user interface to differentiate their products from the competition.

Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 developer tablet running Android 4.0 ICS

A bit earlier this month the folks at Qualcomm had an analyst summit with about 50 industry analysts from both North and South America to show off their developing technologies and in particular one device which had us raising our eyebrows - a new Snapdragon S4 developer tablet running Android 2.3 Gingerbread -- news today from Qualcomm shows off how this tablet is now prepped to be running the newest OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. You'll remember the MDB Qualcomm handset we had earlier this year, that one of the last developer-centric devices the chip manufacturer had out for purchase. Now we've got this lovely tablet coming out sooner than later, and complete with the tastiest Android flavor yet!
