Google and Samsung holding press event for Android Ice Cream Sandwich on Oct 11th

Technically this is a Samsung event which is co-branded with the Google logo. There are new devices with release dates that clearly coincide with this event that would seem to guarantee this is an Ice Cream Sandwich launch.  How soon that OS is delivered to other devices, remains to be seen.  Currently there are some rumors swirling about TI OMAP 4 being the reference platform, which mihgt cause some slight delays getting it finalized for other CPUS namely Tegras and Qualcomms Snapdragon.  To avoid incorrect information and speculation, let’s just say news seems to be appearing rapidly and we will know a lot more on Oct 11th.

There was a leaked video that may or may not be real of a phone running ICS.  we are currently still forming our decision, but you can watch it below and  let us know what you think about it’s validity and why in the comments section.
