Ice Cream Sandwich Android out 'by November'

That's what the IFA-demo'd tablets will have then

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Google's next major Android release, Ice Cream Sandwich, will be out in the October-November timeframe, Eric Schmidt has revealed.

Speaking at Salesforce.com's Dreamforce conference earlier this month, Schmidt said: "We have a new operating system - which is known internally as Ice Cream Sandwich for some reason - which is being released in October/November [and] which everyone is very excited about."

You can watch Schmidt's comment on Salesforce's YouTube channel, about 30 minutes in.

ICS - presumably Android 4.0 - is expected to unify Google's smartphone - Gingerbread - and tablet - Honeycomb - versions of Android, and it's telling that all of the tablets said to run Android 3.2 when they were announced last week at the IFA consumer electronics show will be out in the same mid-Q4 period. ®
