Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich Coming Oct or Nov

Google has “kind of” officially announced that Android Ice Cream Sandwich will be launching in October or November of this year. The current Gingerbread version has been around a while now and a new version will be welcomed. Eric Schmidt said the following:

We have a new operating system, internally known as Ice Cream Sandwich for some reason, which is being released in October/November, which everyone’s really excited about.

With October not being too many weeks away now, this could mean that Google [GOOG] releases the SDK very soon. AndroidandMe points out that the release is likely to be closer to or actually in November. The reason for this thought is that the next Nexus device (the Nexus Prime) has been tipped at arriving in November which could be the first device that runs the new operating system.

The video below has a few details about Ice Cream Sandwich although you’ll need to jump to about the 30 minute point if you don’t want to watch the whole thing.
