Leaked: First Shots Of Ice Cream Sandwich?

Our good friends over at Android Police, and Rootz Wiki have the first shots of Ice Cream Sandwich, running on a Nexus S. Before anyone gets curious, we are assuming that the Android developers over at Google do not have the mass produced hardware to test ICS yet, so we are hoping that they are just testing this on a Nexus device. 

Whether they are real or not, have an open mind and try to get excited for some Ice Cream. Android Police has full confidence in their source, so let’s get pumped that someone at Google loves blogs enough to leak it. So what do you all think? Real? Themed, and build.prop edited?

    Each picture has a lot of stuff redacted, even the icons on the 4th picture.  Seriously?  Redacting icons?

    Thanks for wasting my time.

  • I would like to express my thanks to the writer just for bailing me out of this crisis. Because of browsing throughout the the web and finding things which are not productive, I was thinking my entire life was done. Living minus the approaches to the difficulties you’ve solved by way of this guideline is a serious case, as well as the kind that would have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your web blog. Your actual competence and kindness in maneuvering a lot of stuff was precious. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a stuff like this. I’m able to at this moment relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for your reliable and results-oriented guide. I won’t be reluctant to recommend the sites to anyone who ought to have counselling about this situation.

  • This is an obvious fake. For starters, the android version field is used to display platform version number, not its code name. It’s also using an obviously non-google theme, and the kernel is way behind AOSP.

    Does it really even matter what it looks like? I mean we will all have it themed and ROMd etc by the end of the first day anyway. What really matters to me is how it performs.  I also think its redic that ICS is almost out and we still dont have an official build of Gingerbread for the Thunberbolt. Good thing that the ROM devs know what they are doing cuz HTC is clearly confused. lol

    And wouldn’t the “Android Version” read “3.5” or “4.0”, not “IceCreamSandwich”? I think that’s particularly telling that this is fake.

  • Finger

    Ugh, I hope not. I like the current launcher better. This just looks like those awful developer UIs.

    I really hope that Google decides to do a pilot program with the nexus prime devices. And I hope they send me one like they did the Cr-48.  A boy can dream.

    Full Disclosure: I copied and combined these arguments from comments on androidcentral

    Most likely is a Fake.

    -Honeycomb uses a much newer kernel build, 2.6.36, and ICS was allegedly supposed to use 3.0.

    -Phone icon taken directly from froyo

    -Android version is supposed to say the version number, you cant always say they havent decided a number yet because even during the nexus S gingerbread leaks and previous leaks they always showed the Number, never the name.

    -This has a teal blue theme rather than the dark blue colors of Honeycomb

    -App tray should be semi-transparent

    -Shouldnt the clock have an LED font?

    – That power control widget has been removed ever since Honeycomb

    -the power widget doesn’t use the blue of everything else; it’s inexplicably green.
