According to a new report coming out of BGR, a source has claimed that Google will bump up the ship date of Android’s next flavor and its accompanying devices in an effort to better combat the release of the iPhone 5. We could see Ice Cream Sandwich handsets as early as October, creating an appealing option for owners of the first Motorola Droid with two-year contracts conveniently up for renewal around the same time. One of the first devices to run the next iteration of Android could be a next-gen Nexus model, though all is merely rumors and speculation at this point.
