Google and Samsung are joining forces for an upcoming event on October 11th which is to showcase and discuss exactly what Android has planned for the future, which is likely to include the launch of the new Nexus Prime – the first device to be powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Needless to say, with the event taking place just one week after Apple is expected to announce plans for the iPhone 5, the pressure is well and truly on.
Given the fact that the invitations handed out for the Google/Samsung event displays the Android logo peeping out from a wrapped box, it has already been concluded that the new Nexus Prime Smartphone and its Android 4.0 software is as good as here.
With regard to specs, the Nexus Prime is rumored to be sporting a dual-core processor, screen size of up to 5 inches and compatibility with the Verizon 4G LTE network.
The Nexus range has always served as something of the flagship line for Google, originally partnering with HTC last year to release the Nexus One.
However, past success and a bright future outlook in the Smartphone market may not be enough to ensure smooth sailing for Google when it comes to partnering up for tablet PC ventures, as notebook makers across the board are said to be rather apprehensive when it comes to Android 4.0 as a competitive tablet platform.
