A lot of speculation about if its a ROM/launcher skin or not.....seems to have a lot of features (multitasking) for a launcher....who knows.

I thought the idea was that all the buttons were going to become software buttons starting with ICS. That would be particularly useful on a phone since you could then get more screen real estate in the same form factor. Looking forward to the the Samsung event on the 11th to see if this was for real.

Looks to me it is running on a Nexus S. I'm sure what you said is the case, but why use on screen buttons when the Nexus S has actual buttons? I'm sure they are just turned off for the Nexus S build. The Prime will give us a better idea for certain though.

Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking too. The on screen buttons wouldn't be used on phones that have buttons.

We know that honeycomb code still allows the use of buttons, so it is logical that it would be kept in. Why waste screen space on smaller devices and older (pre ICS) ones with on screen buttons when they have a row of buttons right there.

As for whether this video is genuine the question is do we know of any launcher that looks/works like that? Do we know of any camera that has those features? If the answer is no then whoever made this video went to a hell of a lot of trouble to fake it and they probably have a career in rom design.

only thing I don't like is the blue color.. wish it was still green like GB. it's probably because the honeycomb blue stuff but it makes me think Blur and TouchWiz bleh! luckly there are themes so eventually I'll be able to make it whatever I want. :)

Google wouldn't lock and wipe a device if it was a faked video. Google wouldn't even be able to locate the device to lock and wipe in the first place if it wasn't running ICS. That one thing is a strong indicator that it's real.

Yeah it looked good but i'll be rather disappointed if it doesn't have a 3D/4D (what ever you call it) App Drawer, and the Honeycomb like camera app with the circle thing and the CRT animation...

my biggest hope of ICS is a smoother experience. i know it is a bad comparison but the iphone 3 my phone Ray uses runs smooth as silk on 600MHZ though its apps are starting to lose their punch. Why can't android be that smooth when phones have 1Ghz or higher

anyone notice in the market you can get an ICS theme launcher?

It looks just like this. It is a theme that works with the T-Mobile theme app on CM7.

I call FAKE!
