    Default Google says: ICS launching Oct/Nov

    Chairman Eric Schmidt announced that ICS will be ready Oct/Nov. this probably means a Nov/Dec launch for the Prime.

    So that's put all the rumors of the October launch of the Verizon Droid-Prime to rest.

    The Nexus-Prime wont be out until at least mid November. Most likely Thanksgiving time, and more rumors point to it coming to several carriers under the "Nexus" brand and Verizon will call it a "Droid"

    What rumor suggests it's coming to multiple carriers? There's no concrete source other than one BGR article for the name "Droid Prime." You sound like a broken record.

    I don't really understand where you got any of that from. He said ICS would be launching Oct/Nov... nothing about the Droid/Nexus Prime or carriers.

    If you want a nexus S now, 20 dollars and it will get ICS? I may get one cheap and ram custom roms by aspiring devs down its chips and use the encrypted machine ruler for school. Besides, I checked nur med, and Android DOES have all required apps! Woot! No iphone reduced life. Need some ICS though.

    I have a hard time believing that Google will release such a revolutionary, buttonless OS such as ICS without a proper device that uses it.....

    Yeah lets debut the OS that will stabilize the platform on an old device that its not primed for....?

    I see them debuting both at once, using ICS debut as the announcemnt of the Prime during the unveiling, releasing the phone the following week or so.

    Eric does not like the goofy naming of the OS. I agree. Enough with desert treats.

    The naming scheme was cool before, now its stale. Totally agree.

    I dont mind it until someone thinks of something better, though.

    They are INTERNAL code names made up by the engineers,who can call it whatever the hell they want; they're the ones working on it.

    They're embarrassing and not cool at all; it's very effeminate. And if they're putting anymore than 2.5 seconds in trying to decide the next treat, they're wasting way too much time and effort.
    When I explain Android phones to people and customers I don't use the names; I either call it the new OP or 2.3, etc. I can't bring myself to do it without making a face and putting on a voice.

    Marketing 101: Say, Do, Show something that will "stick" in the consumers mind. Has nothing to do with anyone "liking" it, but your darn tooting if you call something an ice cream sandwich, people will effing remember it!

    Stop reading into this so much.... your mind will turn into a turd.
