Google Announces Android Ice Cream Sandwich
Google today at its I/O developer conference announced Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the newest version of Android. Ice Cream Sandwich will launch during the fourth quarter of 2011 and will bring together a number of elements of Gingerbread and Homeycomb. While Google didn't provide specific details about the numbering scheme, it expects Ice Cream Sandwich to become the main, central Android platform moving forward and it will succeed 2.3 and 3.1. One feature that Google demonstrated was the ability for an Android device to use its camera to sense a user's head movements and use that to control applications on the screen. Google hasn't said exactly when Ice Cream Sandwich will launch, nor what devices will be first to offer it.

gingerbread first things first
Seems like a novelty
I won't make a final opinion until I see it actually used, but right now, it seems like it is just a feather that allows Google/Android to say "An iPhone can't do that."
Same for 3D phones...not really necessary feature for the majority of consumers IMO. Just some extra bells and whistles that can cause problems...
Move forward or get stuck behind.
The camera focuses on you when you're speaking, and then focuses on your friend when they speak.
This is the demo they showed at the event itself.
The feature updates aren't what's important here.
It's going to allow them to improve all three at once.
This is also part of their initiative to roll out updates to all their products in a timely manner. Hopefully, this will fix the issue with fragmentation.
Call me fanboy, biased, closed minded, anti-technology etc. but I work in the wireless industry, so I have a wide knowldege of most (relevant) operating systems out there.
