Google™ to prettify Android™
Google recently unleashed the latest edition of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, on the all new Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone at an event in Hong Kong. The chief plan behind this is to make Android much more advanced so that users can use it with enthusiasm.
Samsung has been making efforts to make the phone as tempting as the name of its OS. The Ice Cream Sandwich is a new OS from Android which is loaded with wonderful features, including a beautiful interface and fonts. Moreover, the OS combines some of the best features of Honeycomb 3.0 and Gingerbread 2.3 OS. Going forward, this OS would be used in almost all Android-equipped devices.
Matias Duarte, Senior Director, Android User Experience at Google, and Hugo Barr, Google product manager, also revealed that this time around, the focus is more on design elements and the appearance of the OS, which is meant to please users.
"We want the users to put the phone back in their pocket feeling satisfied," said Andy Rubin, Google's Android chief, during the event.
Only the Nexus phones with Ice Cream Sandwich OS will appear like this; the non-Nexus phones based on Ice Cream Sandwich will appear different. However, certain features, such as facial recognition technology will still be there.
For all those of you who are waiting, the phone will be in the market for sale in the month of November. The cost has not yet been disclosed by the two firms.
