Google Announces Android Ice Cream Sandwich
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.
My index finger does a perfect job of navigating menus and operating apps.
What I'm trying to say is ordinary folks like us aren't quite imaginable enough to conjure up uses for this, but developers are.
The last video game console I purchased was a PS2...none of that means I'm against new technology.
I guess this will just come down to personal choice and what you want a phone to do, and arguing back and forth won't get either of us anywhere...it would be like arguing iPhone vs. Android...no one will ever back down.
If you need/want a phone that takes 3D pictures, and follows you head to opearate apps, awesome. I don't happen to need either of those features.
I seen the game that slices the fruit and that seems pretty boring to me as well. Maybe I'm just more into games that make you think like scramble and unblock and dots lol
You launch different types of birds that have various destructive "abilities" from a slingshot at structures made of wood, glass and rock trying to kill green pigs.
Once you get to playing it, it's pretty fun.
I guess I'll just stick with unblock me and scramble or watching videos or listening to my iTunes.
Get a lot of friends and invite them to beat your score on Scramble. Now that is super fun. Very competitive
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.
Maybe Android cameras have more difficulty with that, and this feature would help improve the video chat experience for Android users.
It will have to do more than just that (I assume it WILL do more by the time it's available to consumers) for me to be impressed and see it as a necessary feature though.
This isn't "Face detection" this is more like traditional webcams for PC's, that can adjust their focus no matter where you go in the room.
Say I'm talking to my friend who has his phone propped up on something, and he's relatively close (just head and shoulders in the frame), then walks across his living room to grab something, but remains in the frame. On FaceTime, he doesn't appear go out of focus (at least to my eyes, and I have nearly 20/20 vision without any type of corrective lenses).
Until I hear of more features that Ice Cream Sandwich will offer, I'm going to leave this topic alone. We won't really be getting anywhere at this point.
