Brett Stevens - SWEET!!!!!!!!!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jacob Epstein - +Brett Stevens me neither! it also has a new LTE modem in it and it is faster +Lemuel Cantos ikr

Jacob Epstein - lol same! got any ICS ?'s
Andrew Evans - Is that what it's going to be called?
Jacob Epstein - unless google/verizon/samsung makes a last minute name change, which is possible he said then yes
Rai Diaz - Will it have dual core support?
Brett Stevens - it is dual core... TI OMAP4
daniel walsh - awesome. Can't wait. Did he tell release date?
5:30 PM - Edit
Rai Diaz - @Brett Stevens I know it has a dual core processor. What I meant was will ICS have dual core optimization?
daniel walsh - yes
5:34 PM - Edit
Brett Stevens - most likely, if it doesn't have it or GPU hardware acceleration I'll be surprised...
daniel walsh - i think ics and the galaxy nexus are amazing. +Jacob Epstein How were liking the hardware?
5:56 PM (edited) - Edit
Jacob Epstein - no release date guys, and yes ics is optimized for dual core. it does have a dual core, TI Omap
Tarick Goldarr Arnold - +Jacob Epstein How do you think ICS will fair against iOS5? I'm wondering because I have a few friends considering switching to Android.
Jacob Epstein - +Tarick Goldarr Arnold so much more smooth and intuitive, also google's widgets look really nice
Mike DePaul - Can someone point me to documentation on android not being optimized for dual core? I mentioned that rumor to +Romain Guy tom once on twitter and he didn't know start I was talking about. As far as I know the dvm was not fully optimized, but you are not likely to even notice the changes.
Jacob Epstein - +Mike DePaul ics has much better hardware acceleration
Jacob Epstein - for the software
Mike DePaul - know start even know
daniel walsh - Dual core 1.5 ghz. Awesome, can't wait
6:19 PM - Edit
Jacob Epstein - yep 1.5 ghz dual core TI omap
daniel walsh - The processor might be underclocked to 1.2. Is it metal or great plastic?
6:21 PM - Edit
Lemuel Cantos - What about SD card. does it have a card slot?
Jacob Epstein - CRAP i didn't check :-/
Jacob Epstein - but 1900 mah battery i think
Mike DePaul - +Jacob Epstein hardware acceleration is great, but does that change how two cores are accessed? That will help a single core as much as dual our quad, no?
Jacob Epstein - +Mike DePaul ok i'm not sure now that confused me?
daniel walsh - Large battery. It's probably plastic
6:33 PM - Edit
Jacob Epstein - it has a samsung plastic outside but it doesn't feel that way in hand
Lemuel Cantos - Samsung really loves plastic don't they?
Jacob Epstein - this plastic feels awesome though, like futuristic an stuff
6:37 PM +1
Mike DePaul - nevermind I don't want to hijack your thread
6:40 PM +1
daniel walsh - Awesome. Cool and great plastic
6:41 PM - Edit
Lemuel Cantos - But sometimes I just wish they would put in just a little bit of metal, just to say it's not all plastic
6:42 PM +1
Brady Duran - Do you know what camera it has?
Jacob Epstein - +Lemuel Cantos he said there was metal in the phone to improve stability or something +daniel walsh absolutely +Mike DePaul thanks
6:43 PM +1
Jacob Epstein - +Brady Duran same as gs2 i think, 8mp
daniel walsh - +Jacob Epstein any surprises in ics?
6:47 PM - Edit
Lemuel Cantos - Awsome!
Jacob Epstein - +daniel walsh not much we don't already know, there is optimization for the OS to use 2 cores which rocks, and the launcher is great, multitasking is just like honeycomb too
