Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich is a tasty Android upgrade
So here’s the deal: Give Verizon Wireless $300 for a new cell phone, and you’ll get an Ice Cream Sandwich at no extra charge. Ice Cream Sandwich is Google Inc.’s name for the latest version of its Android operating system. In coming months, the software will be distributed free of charge to millions of Android phones and tablet computers, but you can only get it by purchasing the Galaxy Nexus smartphone from Samsung. You might not want to do that.
