Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich video preview
Tinkering with the Ice Scream Sandwich software on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is indeed a fun experience, but how much fun would it be if we don't actually share our impressions with you? Not much. That's why we cooked this sweet little video preview right here, just for you. To make it happen, we worked with an early prototype of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (see our preview here), so please excuse us for the absence of some stuff like the Android Market or the gallery app, for example. Those were just not available in the early build that was installed on our unit.

Still, much of the other crucial functionality like the new People app, messaging and the browser were all here, so there is some quite interesting stuff that you can see in the video below. For even more details on Ice Cream Sandwich though, don't forget that you can always read our written ICS preview, complete with screenshots for illustration. Enjoy!

Not much value in a "preview" of a version of ICS that doesn't exsist. To have both a written & & video "preview" of a phone & OS that you do not have in hand is totally foolish.

You CANNOT have the first review of a handset; other sites receive the phones before you. Why not focus on ACCURACY in your facts rather than the speed in which you can churn out articles.

No doubt it is ICS - I am running ICSlauncher 2.4 right now on my cappy.

He probably meant that the phone is a prototype. idk

White screen drains battery more, so I am sure XDA will be modifying that at some point.

Depends on the type of screen, LCD have lower power consumption with white screens, than Amoleds do. Amoleds are great with black and contrasts though.
