Ever since Google confirmed the existence of its upcoming operating system - Ice Cream Sandwich, we’ve all been eager to find out just how exactly Google would combine the tablet and smartphone flavours of Android. Interface changes will obviously be numerous, and bring the best of Gingerbread and Honeycomb into the mix.

For now, details about Ice Cream Sandwich are extremely scarce, and it will tentatively be launched by Google only by the end of 2011 – presumably, on a new platform lead device or Nexus ‘Prime’ handset. The version number, is still a mystery – will it be Android 2.4 or 4.0?
