Android Ice Cream Sandwich-GALAXY Nexus event full video appears
Yesterday, Google and Samsung stirred the industry with some huge announcements - Google brought Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a major redefinition of the Android experience, and Samsung backed it up with the Galaxy Nexus, a 4.65-inch monster phone with a curved display and a resolution of the shocking 720 x 1280 pixels.

But it wasn’t just about the devices and the list of features - the AsiaD: AllThingsDigital event spoke a lot about the “soul” of Android, the vector of its future development and the ideas behind it. Google’s Andy Rubin and Samsung’s JK Shin presented the devices, but Matias Duarte gave a very intriguing look at the guiding principles of Android design. He mentioned three core values that will drive the development of the platform: “Enchanting. Easy. Smart.”

Smart Android undeniably has been from its beginning, but putting enchanting and easy first, Duarte signals a change so that user friendliness becomes a bigger priority as novice users have complained that the platform is at times overly complicated. For all of that and the rest of the Android/Google Nexus magic, you’d need to check out the full video of the event, it’s definitely worthit.

I want a smartphone with Android iceCream Sandwitch BUT WITH A 4'' SCREEN only!!

I don't want a huge smartphone, I want a smartphone neither small nor big.

I think 4'' is more than enough for a mobile phone.

Who of you is agree with me?

4" is not more than enough. But indeed I think the sweet spot is 4". Best compromize between portability and screen real estate. Or maybe a 4,3" with very little bezels and being really thin. Who said Razr ?
