Samsung sent out invites today for Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011, promising to reveal "what's new with Android" at the event in San Diego on October 11th.


Considering Eric Schmidt's indication of an October/November release for Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and the fact that the Nexus Prime (Google's flagship ICS phone) is said to be a Samsung device,  it's looking like this announcement will almost certainly be related to Android's latest iteration, and perhaps, if we're lucky, the latest Nexus device as well.

For those who don't happen to be hanging out in San Diego for the next couple of weeks, a live stream will also be available to view at YouTube.com/Android. The event begins October 11th at 11:30am PST. Our own David Ruddock will be live on the floor, bringing you all all the exciting news as it happens.

          Ah! I literally was thinking I was overlooking something, hehe

    I guess you don't mind giving the reservation team a little extra work to do. Every other blog at least blurred that info. You guys instead put your watermark logo all over it.

  • ArunaSena

    Well guys, I am guessing this is where Google will showcase ICS and all it's goodness on the next NEXUS.

  • Wizardry

    I'm pretty excited for the Nexus Prime & ICS. :D

  • dward

    I actually doubt there'll be any Nexus action and minimal ICS stuff. Probably a mention of ICS, then upcoming processors and Touchwiz enhancements. Won't Google do all the big announcements at a separate gig?

    • Joey

      So are the Google peeps just going to sit there? I don't think they would make a big deal out of Google being there if it wasn't to announce the new phone...of course I have no idea what will really happen, though!

    Great job samsung what more can be said they have been rolling seriously for sometime now. It's ice cream sandwich time great thing for android. This device better appear on sprint before verizon WHY?? SPRINT PIMP SLAPS VERIZON ALL YEAR LONG

    • squiddy20

      Shut up already Richard. If Sprint were soooo great, then why are they taking away practically every customer perk that differentiates themselves from the other carriers? If Sprint were "pimp slapping" Verizon, then why has Sprint's 4G expansion been practically nonexistent this whole year while Verizon's is still going?

      • RockingmyEvo3D

        They are doing what they need to do.. Jerk weed... Your the biggest verizon fanboy around.. PISS on you and verizon the network with USELESS DEVICES that are over priced while being the poorest carrier in the update game. You and verizon are a JOKE go back to your useless phandroid the site of trolls.. Your probably a Redsox fan too go stand out on a busy highway and get ran over by a mack truck that would make us all happy.. Leave this site LOSER

          While we don't censor our readers' comments, and you're perfectly entitled to speak your mind, I have to advise that being disrespectful and using harsh language will hardly be effective in getting your point across. I'd appreciate it if we didn't turn the comments section into a flame war.

          This isn't the first time you've been warned for inappropriate comments, either.

          Just because you don't agree with someone else, there's no reason to be petty and start the name-calling game. There's no place for that crap 'round here.

    Hope the Prime is coming to Sprint! Getting that.
