Google, Samsung To Present New Technology Together
Samsung, who makes smartphones that utilize Google´s Android operating system, will be presenting on October 11 at the CTIA (Cellular Telephone Industries Association) cellphone business trade show with Google.
According to MSNBC´s Technolog website, on that date Samsung is planning to have its “Unpacked” press conference at the trade show. They will be sharing the event with Google and will be streamed live at www.youtube.com/Android, the official YouTube channel for Google´s Android.
Technolog notes that they will likely debut the latest version of Android, called Ice Cream Sandwich, or Android OS version 4.0. Techcrunch rumors that they will likely feature a new phone called The Prime, which is expected to be the first device to run Ice Cream Sandwich. The Prime is rumored to contain a dual-core processor, 4.5 inch or 4.65 inch screen and 4G, supposedly run on Verizon´s 4G network.
The new operating system is rumored to be more than just an incremental step in technology. Technolog describes it as a way for Android to merge the latest phone OS with its tablet OS (known as Honeycomb, Android versions 3.0 to 3.2). It is expected that they are making changes to the interface and improving its multitasking capabilities and also improved widgets and launcher.
The CTIA, according to their website, is an international nonprofit membership organization that has represented the wireless communications industry since 1984. The organization advocates at all levels of government for its members and coordinates the industry´s efforts to provide choices regarding wireless communications. Some of their voluntary guidelines include ways to promote recycling of wireless devices and improving wireless accessibility for disabled individuals.
