Notion Ink CEO: Ice Cream Sandwich Coming in Late October, Helps Confirm OMAP as Lead Processor Platform

Normally when Notion Ink’s CEO starts rambling, we tend to ignore it after the debacle and series of mishaps that accompanied their launch of the Adam tablet.  But since the dude essentially predicted the exact launch date of Gingerbread, we will go ahead and at least mention the fact that he expects Ice Cream Sandwich to launch by the end of October.  This matches up exactly to what Eric Schmidt said just a couple of weeks ago.

He also points out that “OMAP is the preferred platform” for the next big batch of devices – one of which we expect to be the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon.  TI and the image above basically already confirmed this to be the case, but we are always looking for additional knowledge on the matter from industry insiders.

And for the few folks that actually bought a Notion Ink tablet, their CEO predicts that an update to ICS will be available some time in November.

Everyone ready for the game-changing goodness that is Ice Cream Sandwich?  Late October is just around the corner.

    Not to burst anyone’s bubble here, but Notion Ink has shown in the past that they have no clue what the hell is going on at Google. They’re probably just reacting to all the rumors flying around, just like everyone else is.

    Late October? I’ll be too occupied with battlefield 3 on 360 🙂

  • Tom Fleming’s last tweet was about a keyboard. Physical keyboard on the next nexus??

  • As an owner of an Adam, who abandoned that POS, all I can say is that I would take Rohan’s comments with a grain of salt.

     “OMAP is the preferred platform” Is this bad for ATRIX owners?(nvidia)

  • Still waiting on thunderbolt gingerbread…

    Interetsing article,I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use GrаbPenny.сom

    I just hope that Tom’s tweets are wrong and there is no kb on the nexus. 

    • hopefully so or maybe a second option, physical keyboard is a step backwards for a nexus device

        it reads like there will actually be a Droid Nexus and a Nexus for non Verizon carriers, and that one will have a keyboard. If it has a physical keyboard, I will opt for something else.

          I really hoping that we don’t. The thing will be already be thick being LTE, but to add a keyboard is downright waste.

    I heard ICS isn’t going to be THAT big of an update as we all once thought, many things are bumped to JellyBean….who knows.

      Does the Verizon Nexus have a physical keyboard?

      • John

        All signs point to no.  The Samsung stratosphere, launching very soon, has a slider.

          the @tfleming233 twitter poem that everyone’s been talking about alludes to there being a keeyboard on the Nexus…

          • Booboolala2000

            I have a Charge and a D3 love the keyboard on the D3 but couldn’t imagine a slider and a 4.5inch screen. That said I wouldn’t mind it if there was on just don’t see it. If it is as thick as my D3 I would get it. Will see what happens in the meantime. Love this time of year.

            don’t believe everything you read on teh internetz, especially twitter. There may be a variant of some sorts, but it’s not what’s floating around VZ right now.

      Didn’t you hear that here?

      Anything that combines the tablet and phone OS will be awesome in my opinion. Also, I’m sure there are a lot of sweet features they can add, but an OS that runs smoother is what I want.

        Here, there and everywhere. Though what you mention is exactly what I heard is delayed. There’s a reason the last article said it was 2.4.1….

        Full dual core support and some UI tweaks are a guarantee though. 

    • John

      It won’t be.. and Google has said from the start that it will only be the beginning of the merger between the two OS’s..and more features will be ported from one to the other as time goes on.

      I suspect we will see only a slight UI overhaul combined with a bunch of optimization.
