Ice Cream Sandwich to bring photo editing to the Android Photo Gallery?
Images of icons obtained by Android Police suggest that the Android Gallery will offer built-in editing for photographs with the new Ice Cream Sandwich build of the operating system. The icons, which were originally white on a transparent background (Android Police changed the background to make them easier to view on a computer screen), show a number of basic editing functions such as crop, rotate, flip and one to clean-up redeye.

While not offering a total editing package like, say, Photoshop, the icons also include a box under the heading of Artistic with the initials "FX" inside, indicating that some special effects are going to be available for Android users. The button marked colors had a sliding bar underneath it and there is another slider titled Generic, which doesn't really explain its use. The icons were spotted in the Gallery APK, which doesn't run on older versions of Android.

There is no confirmation that these icons will be used in Ice Cream Sandwich and if they are, they could be a different color or size. We won't have long to find out as the new build of Google's open source OS is expected to be introduced on Tuesday night at 10pm eastern time in the U.S. We will have a live blog, so you can find out all of the information you are waiting to hear about right here!

Most users probably won't touch these editing features, but it's nice that they may be included. It's much more extensive than iOS5's photo editing.

I really really hope they have hardware acceleration built into the OS. I heard that the Samsung galaxy s 2 has it and that's why the phone runs smooth all the time. I think once all Android phones get it, people will stop using lag as an excuse to not get a Android device. Getting my upgrade tomorrow and plan to get the Photon 4G, then waiting for the release and update feature info for ICS.

Personal recommendation, wait a few days more. See what the nexus.is about and then choose. You might end up winning
