This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone, but the Ice Cream Sandwich launch event was accidentally confirmed on the Android Developers YouTube channel. A live stream was posted and scheduled for Tuesday October 11, 2011. That puts it right on par with the Samsung UNPACK event that is taking place that day to unveil the next Nexus flagship, the Nexus Prime. The live stream event was pulled just as quickly as it went up, so the only evidence of it is the above screenshot. Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to bridge the gap between Gingerbread and Honeycomb by creating a streamlined Android experience that works and feels well on both smartphones and tablets. Google chairman Eric Schmidt had mentioned previously that the next Android version was going to be announced either October or November of this year.
Update: We incorrectly reported the date to be October 12. The correct date was October 11, even though that now is moot. We apologize for the error.
