Reminder: We'll be liveblogging from the Google-Samsung event today
Just a quick reminder for all of you waiting for Nexus Prime/Android Ice Cream Sandwich - Google and Samsung’s joint event at AsiaD: AllThingsDigital in Hong Kong will kick off late today and we’ll be covering it live so get cozy by your favorite reading device and ready for a huge evening in tech news.

We’ll be starting our liveblog around 6:00pm PST | 9:00pm EST. We expect it to finally bring Google’s answer to iOS 5, the Ice Cream Sandwich, a statue of which hsa already been erected at Google’s HQ. Samsung is expected to back it up with the Nexus Prime, a 4.6” technological behemoth with a curved glass display, dual-core processor, LTE and everything else you can imagine save for a built-in coffee machine. 

Update: What looks like an official flyer for the Galaxy Nexus, aka Nexus Prime, has leaked out confirming many of the rumors, but with no mention of LTE. Would the handset announced today match that picture? Along with our commentary, you can watch the event live tonight on YouTube.com/Android 

Reminder: We'll be liveblogging from the Google-Samsung event today
For that, you’d need to tune in a bit earlier at 9:00 am PST | 12:00 pm EST when Motorola is expected to introduce the return of its legendary RAZR dressed in DROID clothes. Okay, it also probably won’t have a coffee machine, but it’s projected to come with a rock solid kevlar body, dual-core chip, LTE and a twist of surprise.

Are you ready for that long evening? What are you looking forward to the most?

Ohh man you are telling me! I just want to know all the ins & outs of Android Ice Cream Sandwich. I just can't wait to get it already. A true OS made for multi-core phones! Thanks to root I will be one of the few people who don't have to wait for an official update. Can't WAIT to have the HTC Evo 3D on ICS! XDA you guys are great! Once they release the code work until your heart's content! lol I want the juicy information already!

I'm excited to see what it looks like and whats under the hood, but I'm not getting it because it's Samsung. Could've been better if it's HTC made in my opinion.

Yeah i prefer the lock button on top, and HTC makes great phones. If they could only make their devices have better battery life.

what I think HTC is missing is a better screen. Super LCD does require more juice compared to the retinas and super amoleds. That's why their battery is suffering. I own a Desire HD and no complaints at all except for the battery life. I'm waiting for the first ICS phone out of the box from HTC. I bet it will be huge.

never been a big fan of the raw beans.. unless they are Kona.. Then they have that natural sweetness that makes it tolerable.

I really hope ICS can do something to move the Android ecosystem forward. OK, so Google may not have a true rival to Apple's book and music stores, but if things like high resolution screens and larger built-in storage are introduced more widely among Android phones, I think that will make them much more desirable. Also, the ability to use USB peripherals could add a lot to the Android experience. As of now I can't really think of much reasonable use for USB periphery in touchscreen Android devices, but it would be a step forward into the future. Especially if tablets really want to challenge notebook PCs.
I would also love to see a clearly different visual experience on Samsung phones. That will finally cut the legal mess that is going on. Plus, I'm not that much of a fan of current TouchWiz. I think it's not up to the standard of the hardware in (some of) Sammy's phones.

Ah I can't wait to get this ported over to my Epic Touch. This should definitely put the "ice cream" with the cake. ;)
