Nexus Prime, Ice Cream Sandwich Launch Rescheduled
[ Technology]

It looks like we have another official date set for the big Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS release. Invitations have been seen out for the rescheduled Google / Samsung event, now taking place in Hong Kong on October 19th.

For those in the West, that’s 10 pm Eastern on October 18th. There will be a live stream of the event available on Android’s YouTube Channel.

This unveiling was supposed to take place on October 11th at the Unpacked event in San Diego. But just 4 days before the event was set to take place, Google and Samsung postponed it, saying that they agreed “it is just not the right time to announce a new product. Of course, it was widely believed that the two companies delayed their big event out of respect for the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

Here’s the invitation, which confirms that Android’s brand new OS Ice Cream Sandwich is going to be the star of the show:

Also expected to make an appearance at the event is the first device launching with Ice Cream Sandwich – the Nexus Prime (Galaxy Nexus), the new Google phone. This phone has a huge amount of buzz surrounding it, as Android fans are looking for the next great phone to compete with Apple’s just-launched iPhone 4S.

According to Ars Technica, PR photos from the cancelled October 11th event in San Diego suggest that the Nexus Prime was definitely a part of the big launch. However, we have yet to hear any official word on the phone

    My original Droid died back in June, and although my contract expired in July, which meant I could have gotten another phone at that time, however, I decided to wait for the Bionic, so in the meantime I purchased an HTC Eris (for $50) off eBay to hold me over. Then I kept hearing about the Driod Dinara, HD, Prime and Nexus phones which each were supposed to surpass the Bionic, so decided to wait for these phones. Needless to say, I’m ready to buy something new, and since I’ll be stuck with it for 2 years, I want the Top-Of-The-Line of the current crop of phones available.
