    I'm worried that it won't have 3D animations, cause the side scrolling on the app drawer didn't have them. 'tis a shame cause that's one of my favorite things about the honeycomb UI, and what makes the new Motorola UI so appealing to me.

    it seems the launcher has some similar elements of ics, but IMO is nowhere close to the recent video. This makes me even more excited to see the nexus.
    similar elements? you know this how? has there been a real video or screen shots of real ICS?

    While I always remain speculative of these things, I'm pretty convinced that the posted video from engadget is the real deal. There has been semi-confirmation from jcase (a rather well known developer from XDA).

    There are also a few things shown that no currently available custom Gingerbread ROM, launcher, or series of apps can do. I'm not saying it's impossible but it's rather elaborate (and too well done) for this to be cooked up only for a two minute video just to troll the Android community. If that's the case, then well I say "Bravo" to the troll. I'd also ask for whatever ROM he's running to be released so it can be ported to other devices.

    Its real. There was a whole debate going on over at the XDA forums. The device in question was remotely locked then wiped after the video was made. Eventually they were able to pull the kernel and ramdisk from the device and tell that it was legit.

    Not sure if this is real or not. But if it is, am I the only one who is not impressed at all by what we saw?
    if this is the real ICS, i agree with you. I was expecting more... this cant be it. The only thing i liked in that video was seeing the panorama option in the camera.

    This is 100% fake. He's using
    an ICS theme. I've used the same one myself. Secondly, i'm friends with A.Ruben and this is not real.

    If you were friends with Andy Rubin, you'd know how to spell his last name. Spend a little bit more time at the XDA thread rather than calling BS so quickly.

    No man, he's right. I actually work for Gewgle. The Necksus operating system won't look anything like this.

    And so if true, this "legit" OS on video happens to look almost EXACTLY like the launcher skin in that video? I am sorry, I am not convinced. No matter, we should know by 10/11 anyway.

    Suffice it to say I will not be happy if this is indeed it ...

    Yeah. First impression was "...that's it?" Kind of underwhelmed. Then again, I don't know what I was expecting. Hopefully hardware is impressive/this is fake/there are sweet widgets we're not seeing

    I'm so mad for not bothering to find the XDA thread last night. This guy lives in Suffolk County NY. Chances are I'm within a half hour car drive from him. I'm no dev or anything but I have more than decent knowledge/ability when it comes to Android, and could easily have gotten a dump before it was wiped. I could have made Android/nerd history. Ah well xD

    For those of you saying it was underwhelming...what do you expect? It was just a video. We saw the UI. What did you expect to change in the UI? This is Android. We aren't playing catch up with notifications stuff like that. ICS will likely have biggest game changers under the hood, along with new apps. All this video showed was paging through some stuff. There is more to an OS than the menus and app drawer.

    No one said it was bad, just underwhelming. Are you impressed by this? Not to mention that thre is a good chance that it's not really ICS, but just a launcher made to look like rumored ICS components. Either that or Google copied their ICS off a launcher that has been out a few months already.

    But wasn't that launcher based off of the leaked ICS screen shots?

    Probably was, who knows. Even so, for supposed "real" ICS to look precisely like someone's fake launcher that has been out seems fishy. I guess it doesn't really matter much at this point. Probably no point in me guessing either way anymore as we'll know everything on 10/11, or so we hope.

    That launcher everyone is referencing comes from here...
    [App] Ice Cream Sandwich 2.4 Launcher - xda-developers

    The developer of said launcher even said (per the linked xda thread) it was based off of some leaked ICS screenshots as seen here.
    Android Ice Cream Sandwich Screenshots Leaked

    Having used the launcher, I can tell you there's quite a few things that it's missing compared to what's seen in the video (app drawer is horizontally paginated in the video while the fake ICS launcher is vertically scroll-able, the Google App folder icon in the fake launcher actually opens multi-tasking app previews...while in the video it opens a folder of actual Google Apps, etc.). They are definitely not the same thing.

    I know it'll probably all come clear on the 11th, but if you see the images that are posted here, some of the stuff in the video actually could be accurate to the new Nexus considering it'll launch with ICS. I'm talking in particular about the camera opening from the launch screen, but there are other interesting things listed on those pics that seem to ring true for this phone.

    The video reeled me back into prime land was going to try and get a vigor but if that launches on or around the 13 with the prime shortly after I will wait. This phone seems like the monster I want with an os that's lean and mean. Getting tired of skins and the bug/delayed updates they cost give me something that is built by an oem but with google providing the os and accompanied updates
