Today Google officially announced Ice cream sandwich, the next version of android.Ice Cream Sandwich will be a combination of the tablet operating system and the phone operating system.So the manufacturers will no more have to put different OS on different devices and Ice cream sandwich will be the one for tablets and phones as well. It also brings USB Host support for many USB devices, including an Xbox controller which was demoed live at the event.

It was mentioned in Google IO that Ice Cream Sandwich will definitely be open-sourced.Other cool features like android tablet tracking the face and camera’s ability to tract voices in video call were also shown in the demo.

Ice cream sandwich will be released in Q4, which is the only sad aspect and I am already having an itch to use it !
