Galaxy Nexus/Ice Cream Sandwich Event Confirmed for October 19th



We had a pretty good feeling that Samsung and Google would be announcing something in Hong Kong on October 19th and sure enough, invites are now spreading like wildfire for an event that is scheduled to take place on the 19th, an event that will revolve around Google’s Android 4.0 operating system and will likely be the launch pad (see the Samsung logo?) for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Now, this means that the announcement won’t take place until late in the day here in the United States. 7PM Pacific to be exact. Luckily, the event will be livestreamed on YouTube so you’ll want to grab a bite to eat, gather the family and crowd around the computer monitor to listen in.

We fully expect both a hardware and software announcement and right now, we believe that the Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich will be launching on or around November 3rd.

Android Event

We still aren’t sure exactly what the Galaxy Nexus looks like, though we have a pretty good idea, but we’re pretty sure we know its specifications.

It’s said to include a 4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass, LTE/HSPA depending on carrier, 1,750 mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, and a 5MP camera with a 1.3 front facing camera.

We’re pretty sure this is going to be the Android phone that many of you have been waiting for, and will want to pick up – sorry HTC Vigor, so be sure to tune in on the 18th for what promises to be an exciting event.

    Just in case people didn’t read your whole post, for us in the US, the announcement will be made on the night of October 18th as Hong Kong is ahead of us by 15 hours here on the west coast.

      Who cares if it’s only a 5MP camera….IT’S A PHONE, not a DSLR camera for crying out loud! 5MP is 2984 x 1680 resolution. More than enough to print an 8×10 photo without losing the quality it was taken in. And let’s be real…these phone cameras do NOT take clear pictures if you inspect them in Photoshop or Lightroom. They are only an item of convenience & should be weighted as such when considering a new P-H-O-N-E. The only time the hobbyist or average person is going to need more than 5MP is if they’re going to blow it up to larger than 13″ on one side. Come on everyone…let’s start letting these phone manufacturers focus on what MATTERS. Reception, functionality & BATTERY LIFE. The only thing 8MP is going to do for you is hog up more of your memory card.
