On Tuesday night, at an event in Hong Kong, Google unveiled the newest version of its Android operating system. Android 4.0, dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich, is perhaps the most important Android release ever.
Not only does it merge Android 2.x, which is used on mobile phones, with Android 3.x, which was designed for tablets, Google clearly aimed to make Ice Cream Sandwich more than just another major release.
Its apparent goal: reshape Android, making the entire interface and experience, oft-criticized, much, much tastier for mainstream consumers and hardcore mobile enthusiasts alike.
Will Google succeed, perhaps helping it compete against iOS and the iPhone? Here's what folks are saying.
