We`ve seen the video this morning of what appears to be Ice-Cream Sandwich running on a 2nd hand Nexus S, now it appears that Samsung and Google are sending out invites for an event on October 11 at the CTIA Trade Show in San Diego.
From the invite it appears that invitees are will be introduced to “Get a look at what`s new in Android” and also tantalisingly the event is being described as a “Google Episode”, could this be the grand unveiling of Ice-Cream Sandwich on a new Nexus device (Samsung Nexus Prime, Google Nexus Prime, Samsung Galaxy Nexus)? The event at CTIA is scheduled for 11:30am on October 11(05:30am October 12 for me in NSW), there is a live feed of the event from http://youtube.com/Android, which is another indicator that the event has something major to do with the Android OS, so i`ll definitely be tuning in for this. More After the Break
We know that Samsung will be releasing ‘something’ at CTIA from this entry in the awards section :
And further down in the Shutterbug section we also have another device although this device is not listed as a Samsung device so not sure if this is related :
We also know that the GSM Version of the Samsung GT-i9250 the phone which is rumoured to be the next Nexus device has passed through the BlueTooth SIG for Certification and is showing as carrying BlueTooth 3.0, so this version should be compatible with the Vodafone/Optus networks.
One thing I`m still waiting for is the traditional pre-release delivery of a dessert themed statue to the GooglePlex like we have seen for the rest of the releases like Honeycomb & Gingerbread, i`m hoping we see a statue delivery in the next week or 2 which would be another good indicator that another dessert themed release is about to burst forth. But for now i`ll be tuning in on October 12th, will anyone else be joining me to watch this event?
