Google Creates Live Stream Placeholder for “Android ICS Launch” [Unofficial Confirmations]

The pieces are all coming together. We fully expect Google to announce Ice Cream Sandwich. We fully expect Samsung to announce the Nexus Prime. We fully expect Ice Cream Sandwich to be installed on the Nexus Prime. And now we expect there to be a live stream broadcasting the event to all who live on the internet.

A YouTube placeholder for an “Android ICS Launch” was spotted on YouTube. It says “this live event will begin in 4 days and 20 hours” as of the time of this posting. Let me take a look at my calendar. Oh, look, CTIA on October 11th where Samsung and Google are set to make a joint announcement. Bookmark that link and come back in just under 5 days, folks. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

    I want the Nexus Prime to be everything great I want in a phone. However, I’m wondering what Samsung’s going to gimp on it in order to have a leg up in their Galaxy line. Samsung seems really proud of their galaxy brand and I can’t imagine they want their joint venture with Google to eclipse their own phones.

      I think it’s beneficial for Samsung for various reasons.

      Firstly, Samsung’s not known for its design and is synonymous with cheap (even though the plastic is just fine). If the Nexus Prime represents a new design attitude over at Samsung, you’ve now given people excellent hardware, as well as design.

      Second, if the device sells well, Samsung unofficially becomes Google’s top dog when it comes to who makes the Nexus device. If we’re to believe it’s a competition, obviously they’ll have to continue to come up with great screens, processors, etc., but they’d definitely be favorites.

        Yeah i can see companies being nominated for next nexus being a prestige thing in the future with stiff competition.

        Except now that Google owns Motorola, I can’t imagine Samsung’s going to feel so secure…

      When the Nexus S released they gave it a 8 month old processor and even today it is still regarded as being faster than almost every single dual core phone. I think a dual core Nexus will hold it’s own against the first quad core phones.

    I really hope the Nexus Prime isn’t exclusive to any cell company.

    • Kobby Laast

      Google is to smart to have it exclusive to one cell company they did that with the Nexus One, it did not sell good. Then they put the Nexus S on almost every carrier and it sold very good.
