    This version contain many new and cool feature that make it different to its previous version.
    The latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, or simply Android ICS introduces
    a bunch of new features never seen before in its prior iterations. Android 4.0 ICS has a
    brand new look although it does maintain some resemblance to Android Honeycomb, it
    would be available for tablets as well as smartphones. The Galaxy Nexus would be the
    first smartphone with the new version, and it is expected to hit the Indian stores in November.

    Apart from the features we have mentioned here, Ice Cream Sandwich has a bunch of
    new features which deeply integrate into your smartphone and tablet experience.
    These are the ones we think are really special.
