SG Comics Presents: Apple Eats Android Ice Cream Sandwich

SG Comics Presents: Apple Eats Android Ice Cream Sandwich

Last week's Google I/O kicked off the first keynote with an image on the big screen of an adorable Android robot ready to swallow an apple, bringing laughter to the crowd of 5000 attendees. This certainly isn't the first time we've seen shots taken at the bitten apple logo, which being an inanimate and already injured fruit has very little means to defend itself.

Samsung Galaxy S Gingerbread ROM leaks

Samsung Galaxy S Gingerbread ROM leaks

Samsung has already promised Gingerbread for the Galaxy S sometime this month, but what looks to be the official build has already leaked out. SmartDroid caught an Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S in the wild, complete with TouchWiz 4 - the updated version of Samsung's custom UI - though it's still described as a beta.
