Android Ice Cream Sandwich Photos Leak on Nexus S

Several screenshots have been leaked to a set of Android-specific fan sites that appear to show a Samsung Nexus S device hosting the newest still unreleased version of Android, that being Ice Cream Sandwich, a version which is said to tie together the smartphone and the tablet worlds, each of them now running their own versions of Android, Gingerbread for handsets and Honeycomb for tablets. A set of factoids appears to have been delivered with these photos from a source who very well may be delivering a legitimate Beta version of this operating system to the public.
