Galaxy Nexus, please!” That’s what races through my mind every time we inch closer to a new Nexus announcement. I was certainly hoping we’d see one at their event in Hong Kong where they unveiled Ice Cream Sandwich and the Galaxy Nexus.

With emphasis on combining the phone and tablet OS into one, we were surprised to see no mention made of a new tablet. Heck, they didn’t even have demos of Android 4.0 on existing tablets.

That’s why I got a little excited when I saw the photo above- renders of the Galaxy Nexus and a tablet I’ve never seen. The tablet is running Ice Cream Sandwich if those virtual navigation buttons have anything to say about it.

So what is it, exactly? Is this just a generic render to illustrate how tablet and phone OS are now one or is there more than meets the eye? We won’t get too excited for the time being but let’s hope Google is at least working on something similar. [Android.com, thanks everyone!]
