I am sure you are still giddy with excitement after we just showed you an actual image of the Galaxy Nexus. We thought you might want to keep the ball rolling and get a little ICS goodness as well.
It appears that the highly anticipated Ice Cream Sandwich OS will include native screenshot capabilities. This time around we won’t need to be rooted or need to have any add-ons to be able to to capture a screenshot image, with the Galaxy Nexus you just hit volume down and power to save the image. This may not seem like a very nifty feature to some of you but once you get your new Galaxy Nexus I am sure you are going to want to brag to your friends about how cool ICS really is.
Our pals over at Android Police stumbled upon a couple of binaries within ICS proving that a couple apps (screenshot and screencap) are in charge of the native screenshot feature. Yes, these are also found in Honeycomb as well but in ICS you won’t need root in order for them to work!
usage: screenshot [-s soundfile] filename.png
-s: play a sound effect to signal success
-i: autoincrement to avoid overwriting filename.png
-h: this message
-p: save the file as a png.
If FILENAME ends with .png it will be saved as a png.
If FILENAME is not given, the results will be printed to stdout.
See you all later in the proverbial YouTube theater!
