Today, the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was unveiled at Google and Samsung’s Hong Kong event. Along with this new Ice Cream Sandwich update, Samsung and Google also announced flagship Ice Cream Sandwich bearer Galaxy Nexus phone. The Galaxy Nexus can be termed as a mini tablet with 4.65 inch screen, and comes packed with 1.2 GHz along with 1 GB of dedicated RAM. Although the phone will take sometime to be available for general public, enthusiasts have already unearthed Galaxy Nexus’s complete system app dump. The apps that come packed in this dump are a mixture of system as well as Galaxy Nexus stock apps.
Here is a complete list of apps that you expect to find in this Galaxy Nexus app dump:
For now, these Galaxy Nexus System apps are only meant for developers who can tinker with them to make ports on different Android devices. Please note that this isn’t a flashable Zip file, and individually installing any app on your current device may end up in force closures or system instability. You can head to MyDroidWorld’s Ice Cream Sandwich system Dump thread posted here to get the apps [via Android Police].
Apart from the system apps dump of the Galaxy Nexus, Google has made Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich SDK officially available for general public. According to them, the all new and revamped Ice Cream Sandwich brings easy multitasking, enhanced notification features and completely customizable home/lock screens with resizable widgets. The good thing about this version is that virtual navigation bar has also been introduced, which will impart less stress on developers and users to get button remapping after porting/installing this update. Also, since the SDK is now available, you can also expect some yummy Ice Cream Sandwich getting ported to select/compatible Android devices very soon.
