First official Ice Cream Sandwich promo video

First official Ice Cream Sandwich promo video
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich have had their official unveiling. We've given you the breakdown of the Galaxy Nexus, and the announcement in general, but there's also a lighter bit to bring you: the official promo video. 

The video covers some of the cool improvements available in Ice Cream Sandwich including the improved UI on notifications and multitasking, Face Unlock, Live Effects in the camera, panorama pictures, quick responses, data usage meter, and Android Beam. We'll dive into these features more soon, but for now, the video:

Now THIS is a truly innovative iteration of a mobile OS - and not the CRAP that is iOS5! And the Nexus Galaxy may not be best it could be - but it'l still blow out the iJoke 4S out of the water. Hell, even the Google nexus one running ICS blows the iJoke 4S out of the water lol. If only they can port ICS on to the iPhone 4.. but even if not - my next phone will be running it. No more Crapple.

Port ICS to the iphone 4? I'll bet it'll crash and burn. . .

The video kinda sucks but ICS looks epic!!! it could only be better if ICS came to SG2 or the galaxy nexus came to sprint. (my carrier)

You will be able to get it soon. As soon as the first custom rom embraces it, in fact.

It looks like Google took deleting emails and closing apps from Web OS. Which is okay, because WebOS is dead!
