Say, you wouldn’t be interested in checking out a 2 min video showing a walk through of Android’s latest and greatest, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), would you? Oh yeah, you would? Great, because we’ve got a taste for you courtesy of our friends over at Engadget. We’re not surprised that leaks would begin to surface, especially since the OS will most likely be available some time over the next couple of months. However, this was a bit out of left field. One lucky eBay member looking forward to receiving a Nexus S he purchased on the popular online auction received a little more than he thought he would. After snatching this bad boy out of the box and noticing something a bit off. He noticed the OS was slightly revamped, so naturally, he hightailed it to the “About Screen”. To his amazement, he found the blissful words “IceCreamSandwich” for its OS version. We know what you’re thinking. ”You lucky b!@#%*d”. Well, don’t worry, as we can provide you with the next best thing. How about a 2 min walk-through of the device running on an updated build, IRK48 and kernel 3.0.1?
Note in the video that there are some extremely noticeable hints of honeycomb on the device, such as the vertical multitasking menu found on tablets. Short cut keys now include room for four icons instead of two. In addition, Google has added a Google Apps icon which gives you instant access to all of your favorite Google products. You’ll notice UI changes as well when it comes to the camera, several menus and the notification bar. As the folks over at Engadget note, it’s possible that this could just be a slick ROM placed on the device, which is where Im personally leaning. However, we have to admit it and give credit where credit is due. Even for a ROM, it looks slick as hell.
