ICS almost upon us

With the Google/Samsung ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) event tomorrow night for the US, what are you most excited about? A new Nexus (developer) phone? Just Ice Cream Sandwich alone?  What are you app developers looking forward to most? The idea that the Android OS will finally be unified under one set of APIs? Better handling of varying screen sizes? Let me know what you guys are all hoping to see tomorrow night during the Google/Samsung event.

Google+ update

The leaked Google+ version 2.0 update brings some pretty nice enhancements, especially to honeycomb. There are two new widgets, one of which you can resize. It also utilizes the action bar and seems more suited to honeycomb (and most likely ICS). Here are some screenshots I took from my Transformer.

Android Developers preparing for ICS Video

Here is a snap shot of the YouTube home page showing me that Android ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) Launch is scheduled. It doesn't give a date for when it is scheduled, but we know that they are preparing to upload. I can't wait!!!
