Nexus S Purchased on eBay Gives Us a 2-Minute Ice Cream Sandwich Preview (Video)

It was only a matter of time before someone jumped on eBay to buy a phone only to find that it came pre-loaded with the latest and for-the-most part unseen version of Android aka Ice Cream Sandwich.  The Nexus S pictured above and on video below was just released over at Engadget, giving us a fabulous look at Android 4.0 and all of its cyan-greenish tints, Honeycomb lock screen, recently used app scroller, and more.  

Some things we noticed right off the bat:

  • Lock screen lets you jump into the phone or straight to the camera – Apple kang, hah.
  • What is that Google Apps icon?  A shortcut to all things Google.
  • Dock has 4 standard apps – will assume they are interchangeable.
  • Notification bar has a quick settings button – hoping for easy wifi/bluetooth toggles.
  • App drawer is horizontal just like Honeycomb.
  • Widget previews in there as well.
  • Long press on Home gives you recently used app menu from HC. Looks great on a phone.
  • Settings menu has been broken up into sections.
  • Pressing Menu at home only had 3 options, one being wallpaper.
  • Seriously, Cyanogen needs to be paid for this color scheme. 🙂

    This dude doesn’t even seem to know how to work an android phone. Alright WHO gave him permission to hold and operate this device?!

  • It seems that this is the real thing, else someone spent a lot of time coding for no real benefit, unless they wanted to fool the masses til Oct. 11th, seems like a waste of talent.

    Also people who say they are unimpressed, a 2 minute video, how much do you really expect to see.This version is to unite tablet and phone, point me to the article by GOOGLE that say this is a major redesign of the UI.

    This is definitely a user debug build, yet from the 2 minutes, it runs smoothly, menus that no version of android has currently, new features in camera and lock-screen already displayed, all this on a phone running a 1GHz processor.All I know is that I can’t wait to see it on my SGS2

  • Custom ROM with ICS Launcher… That’s what it looks like to me.

    this thing is so fake.

  • Anonymous

    looks like they renamed the contacts app people based on that video. 


    Seems like a lot of work to fake something that is coming out in a few weeks.  Probably a development version of ICS.

  • Anonymous

    Assuming this is really a pre-release version of ICS, I really don’t get why people would think this is “not that different” just from a 2 minute video showing you basic things. By the same logic Froyo to Gingerbread was a just a theme and new app drawer.

    The coolest thing that I think Google did from Froyo to GB is add a much nicer and very effective voice search. Something like that might not be shown in a video such as this.

    You haven’t seen what Google has changed. You don’t know if its coded different. Actually the only thing I don’t want to see just happens to be the only thing that I want Google to change, and that is lag/ smooth interface.

    I find it hilarious how so many people now think they are experts about ICS and have the knowledge to make an informed decision about an unreleased product.

  • Jed

    Im bored, thats all I have to look forward to with ICS? My penis didnt move once while watching that video.

    Engadget is now reporting that the tipster’s device was somehow locked and wiped… If that’s true, it sounds like this is the real deal. I’m betting it’s a publicity stunt.

    HMMMM, Samsung teams up with Google for Nexus phones, Samsung hires Cyanogen, new Android ICS coming to new Samsung Nexus phone. Seriously, they just need to give the phone to Cyanogen, then ship it to consumers after he’s done.

    That blue/cyan needs to be toned down a little, especially in the pull-down notification. The line is too thick; it could be a little thinner and more subtle.

    SUBTLE is the keyword.

    ummm settings…about phone….build…os version….would have been the first thing i would have shown to prove it. looks like a cool rom though…attention grabbers. wonder if he got what he wanted???

  • Anonymous

    I don’t know if this is a fake. Sure seems like it. However no one has seen ICS run before. It’s very easy to call a fake on a blurry cam but that was a lot to soak in. Plus it seems like everything that has been said about ICS. A phone version with HC options and utilities. Although I will say that if someone did manage to pull all of those features out of what could be ICS and Into a rom release that shit! Can you say instant best rom available for any phone with those features? Infact to be able to be creative enough to add all that an have it still run as smooth as it did is impressive.

  • Tyczj

    so what happened to there being no need for buttons anymore? Yes i realize this is a nexus s but would you be able to see something that replaces them?

    I guess that is one feature that will not be in ICS

    • Alan Paone

      would you rather that the buttons took up all your screen like they do on the i*hone?
      Seriously, *every* app needs back and menu functions, so why not put them in the otherwise useless dead space outside the screen? Android has this exactly right, and I don’t see that changing any time soon

      • Tyczj

        Well I’m just saying that was rumored to be a feature in is like honeycomb

  • P5stover

    Anyone try calling the 806# in the notification menu?

  • Cool, new GUI.  However, I am sick of the same cookie cutter crap.  I love android, but there is little to no innovation coming from them.  Apps are the absolute last thing they put time into.  As much as I love android, Apple is number 1 and rightfully so.  They have a phone that lasts over 2 days on what most of you consider heavy usage, and almost never crashed.  I have to restart android daily to keep stability.  I hope to God they put some effort into this OS and didn’t just make it in the last 5-6 months.  Quality takes time.

    • Killer_of_monsters

      Apple is not number one.. if you like apple so much then go and buy a iphone and stay off android sites

    • this is funny.  
      first take a look at the charts and let me know if apple is number 1.
      second wait until you see ios5, youll think its android they have copied so much from it so tell me who is not innovating.
      third the battery in the iphone is huge and much bigger compacity than in the android phones. this is why they last longer. we have the option of carrying a spare battery or 2 or 10 to go without charging you dont have that with iphones.  
      and finally if your android phone is crashing than blame the maker of the phone because a well programmed android phone doesnt crash. my droid was up 228 hours before it crashed and it was netflix that crashed it not android.
      if you want to be an apple fanboy thats cool just come with some true facts next time and we might listen.

    The really great and understated thing about Ice Cream Sandwich, is that Google will once again return to releasing the source code to the world. They skipped doing so with Honeycomb, because they didn’t want everyone shoe horning a tablet OS onto phones when it wasn’t designed or quite ready to work on phones. 

    So they held back the source code and to this day have not released Honeycomb source. That’s why some Honeycomb ROM ports have experienced some difficulty. 

    Ice Cream sandwich should change that and hopefully we will see the next Cyanogen Mod skipping Honeycomb and going directly to Ice Cream Sandwich. That means a lot of current devices will be graced with Ice Cream sandwich.

    I also noticed there’s a backup and reset setting in the settings and the Messaging app looks to have a very different interface. Also, a ‘People’ app? I guess a rebranded contacts app. Another thing about when you press the menu button is the other two options are ‘Manage Apps’ and ‘Help’

    This guy is clearly the worst camera man ever I mean seriously i just wanted to slap the Sh^t out of him and it seems like he has never used a android phone before.

  • I dont really like the design of the new UI and launcher. I liked how gingerbread looked. 

    • I like it, gingerbreads launcher was too plain along with the UI.

      i liked how gingerbread looked too but i like how the tablet and phone versions now finally look alike. i dont like how they made 2 different UI changes with gingerbread and honeycomb. the gingerbread theme really didnt last long at all.

  • GingerBiscuit

    now we know this ICS update is more to merge the OS rather than overhaul anything… im sure some poeple were expecting more but I had a feeling it was gonna turn out like this. More similar of a jump from 2.2 to 2.3 than 2.1 to 2.2 if ya know what I mean…


    If that is a ROM somebody has wayyyy too much time on their hands.  Lets face it, that is real.  I would rather have that phone above than the Nexus Galexy, Driod Prime whatever thing.  Perfect size (not a 4.65″ tank that won’t fit in my pockets), and the whole front is a screen.  :::goes to ebay:::

    It looks real to me. Although, I never did check out that Ice Cream sandwich launcher/home replacement app from a few weeks back. Lets not forget that its a developer phone and they released ICS to dev’s to toy with/develop for(obviously) but, they were told to keep a lid on it. So, I’m gonna say real deal on this.

    I think that when the Bionic gets the update, Verizon should send ice cream sandwhiches to all the Bionic owners.  Or, maybe have an ice cream sandwhich event with free ice cream sandwhiches in their retail stores.

    Yeah.  🙂

    i really hope they didn’t replace the sound off feature on the lock screen for quick access to the camera.  i find myself using the sound off feature frequently – probably more so than the camera.

      we don’t know how long this guy had it though, right? I mean I’d become pretty comfortable with things like that in just a couple hours. especially if he just made a demo itinerary.

    It looks pretty legit to me, pretty much what I’d imagine if my HC tablet merged with my phone. The only things that have me on edge are the app thumbnails instead of icons in the multi-task menu and widget thumbnails instead of text. If widgets are grouped by app name (like they are in cyanogenMOD) then it will be awesome, if it’s just a graphical implementation of the current style this is going to suck because some apps have like 10 different widget sizes and you have to scroll through all of them.

    What’s funny was when I was reading my Android feeds this morning I was like “where’s all the ICS info?!?” since I haven’t heard anything about it in a few days and then bam this shows up!

    Not digging the new dock’s appearance — too reminiscent of TouchWiz for me.

    Quite frankly I like green better… and I’m not digging the –o– design on the notification bar pull-down either. The features are superb, and I’ll always support Android, but I wish that they were implemented in a more stylish way. I actually like the way Gingerbread looks, and I felt like buliding off of that would’ve been better.

    Oh well, I’m still pumped!

  • tanknspank

    The google apps shortcut looks more like a new folder layout. Remember how the old leaks had that on the dock all the way to the right with different icons in it?

        Anything other than a 4.0 worthy software would be a letdown. You can’t merge a tablet and phone OS but keep the numbering scheme on a phone OS. Unless they don’t plan to have ICS on both phones and tablets.

    • It’s called pre release software, hence they are using the codename. I’d say it looks legit.

    • Trebor Waihee – Yanazaki

      I feel like they do that a lot while testing new OS versions. It’s even more believable if they haven’t decided what version they will call this yet. 4.0? 3.5? 

      • Manny

        I think it’d make more sense to have the version be numbered 4.0 simply because tablets SHOULD be able to use it. It’d make little sense to downgrade. It might appear bad to your average consumer who says “omg i*hone went from 4 to 5 and Cyborg went from 3.1 to 2.4 lolsobad”. Just my 2 cents!

        And yes, the average consumer would think that. Just like how my brother thinks his iPhone 4 is 4G… -_-

            What is also interesting is the 3.x kernel on the phone. Jerry from Android Central was saying in one of the podcasts that the kernel just came out for linux this summer and is still being properly integrated into the different distros so having it on Android would be a long shot. I guess we will find out in a couple of weeks if its real.

            It could be that it is still a test build so they used the ‘code name’ instead of the version number

            Linux kernel 3 is in most distros coming out this or next month. So with a company like Google leading the development it could happen.

        Going to about phone wouldn’t really prove anything. If it was a really a homemade rom, then he could easily fake the about phone info.

    • Granted

      If it wasn’t a fake publicity leak from Google, I’m sure they would. The fact that this person didn’t do a system dump is evidence enough of that fact.

    Edit: They removed the 3D app drawer and went side scrolling…WHY?!

    • Anonymous

      Eh, I hardly EVER open the app drawer just cause it’s kind of annoying to use, I like the idea that I can just swipe over and I don’t even have to think about how far over the icons will move they will always be in the same space on the grid if that makes any sense.

    • Anonymous

      I agree, that implementation is nice on my 10″ transformer but I don’t know how it will be on a 4″ phone since you can’t fit a lot in such a small space. If they shrink the thumbnails down to the point where you can have more on the screen, what’s the point of having thumbnails if you can’t see them?

      •  someone needs to show him how to hold a camera still!

        • Granted

          No, if Google had done it professionally, it would “appear”to be a “real”person that somehow stumbled upon the newest OS. Unless of course you actually fall for these lame stunts.

    • Trebor Waihee – Yanazaki

      Ya, I like the pages for the app drawer better because it’s a little easier to remember where everything is and you aren’t just flicking until you see the icon you want. On a human interaction level I think it’s easier to think “oh, this app is on page 3” then to mentally try to figure out where it is on a list which doesn’t have a clear indication of relative position.

      As far as the app switcher, I don’t mind just having three previews since I normally am switching between only the most recent 3 or 4 apps anyway.

      I guess I’m alone, but I’m not very impressed at all. All the hype around Duarte and design and ICS in general for a Gingerfrankencomb? We’ve waited a while for something it looks like Cyanogen could have whipped up in a week.

        It’s because they are holding things out for jelly bean. I figured it wouldn’t have that much wow factor since they are rushing it to compete with iPhone.

          Sadly then it sounds like Android is slowly becoming like BlackBerry then, those oh-so-wanted-overhauls are always in the next release. Repeat. Other than JIT in Froyo, I feel really not much has fundamentally changed since 2.0.1 two years ago. It’s time for Android to take the next big step forward, and I just don’t see it here.

            Agree maybe this is an early build but it doesnt have the wow factor or make me be in a rush to get it. I will see how it looks on the prime then decide.
