Hot on the heels of Apple’s own launch of their updated mobile operating system platform, iOS 5, Google is unleashing their own updated Android OS over the course of the next several weeks.
Jumping up to Version 4.0, but more popularly known as Ice Cream Sandwich, this new update will bring a host of new features and improvements, and is surely bringing Google’s vision for a stable, beautiful, and yet customizable mobile OS to a realization.
As for the features, Ice Cream Sandwich will sport an improved notification system, easier multi-tasking, new voice controls, updated Google Apps, homescreen and lockscreen interfaces, home screen folders and a host of other additions.
Ice Cream Sandwich has no release date yet, but it’s safe to say it will be rolled out to the more recent phones pretty soon. Older Android phones might have to wait a tad longer, and some might even not run the new system at all, due to hardware restrictions.
Nevertheless it’s pretty much a given that any recently purchased (or won!) Android phone will be getting the lavish treatment of an updated operating system in the near future. Check out Yipiii’s selection of mobile phones, and who knows, maybe you’ll be winning a front row seat to Android’s new performance. I don’t know about you, but I’m hungry for ice cream right now (literally, too).
