Google Ice Cream Sandwich OS Complete; Search Giant Erects Statue (Video)

October 14, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Google has announced that its latest version of the Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich, has been completed. The company has erected a statue of an Ice Cream Sandwich Android figure at the company’s headquarters in Mountain View to celebrate the accomplishment.

As you might already know, Google announced that their latest operating system will be officially unveiled on October 19th in Hong Kong.

On that day, it is expected that the new OS will be shown off running on Samsung’s upcoming smartphone Nexus Prime.

 

As they did at the time of the launch of Gingerbread and other Android releases, Googlers have placed the giant Android figure on the lawn and also released a video (posted below) titled “Calling All Ice Cream Sandwich Lovers” on YouTube.

It appears to be good times for Google as the company’s CEO said that, “We had a great quarter. Revenue was up 33 per cent year on year and our quarterly revenue was just short of $10 billion. Google+ is now open to everyone and we just passed the 40 million user mark”.

And Google can be proud about the fact that there are about 190 million Android devices around the world. More than enough to worry Apple, especially since Apple’s latest handset can’t be called amazing.

The search giant hasn’t given out much information on the new mobile OS. But Google has said that it would come with features of Gingerbread and Honeycomb operating systems. But we won’t have to wait too long to know about its entire features. Stay tuned.
