Android 4.0 Debut

Google's latest Smartphone and Tablet operating system, The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, has been officially launched. This new operating system combines the best of the previous tablet and smartphone operating systems with a couple of tweaks and new features. The user interface has been noticeably reinvented with resizable widgets, customizable home screens, interactive notifications, animations, and more. They have been some improvements and tweaks including the copy and paste features, email interface, sharing options, data log entry, alerts, and screenshots. Multitasking has been given an overhaul and its now controlled by a new task management system allowing the user to see all recent and currently running items that can be halted with one single touch. A crazy new feature of the system is the face recognition integration to the lock system. This feature allows the user to unlock his device using his facial features, meaning that unless the user's face is successfully scanned and recognized by the device, the phone will not unlock. Another feature improved with this OS is the camera interface which has been completely remade offering the users 1080p video capture, a zero shutter lag, new panorama scene interlacing and of coarse more sharing options. A new feature which resembles the iOS 4.0 update from last year is the grouping of applications in folders, which has never before been available for Android users. The first device to sport this OS is the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus, other devices sporting the OS are yet to be confirmed, and there is no talk yet about current models getting a system upgrade.
