Almost every single day of the past couple of year or so has seen consumers the world over testing the water of the Android camp, only to jump ship and give the iOS devices of Apple a go instead. Needless to say, the latter of the two has consistently taken the cake for overall user experience, meaning that consumer movement in the opposite direction has always been minimal to say the least. Of course, Android is not without its tens of millions of devoted followers, but generally speaking, once you go iPhone, you never go back.
However, this could be due to change one and for all in the very near future, as the upcoming release off Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich gracing the mighty Samsung Galaxy Nexus looks set to revolutionize the Android beyond our wildest expectations. That being said, there are of course a number of concerns in the minds of the techno-savvy community ahead of the ICS released, including that of compatibility with other devices, not to mention whether or not a 4.65 inch screen-bearing Nexus is simply too big?
Time will of course tell, but whether or not the Nexus replaces the iPhone in the lives of the masses, the undeniable fact of the matter is that millions will want one anyway. The bragging rights along that come with being the first to take on ICS are probably worth the purchase price in their own right, plus there is nothing about the device itself or its OS that can be called anything other than impressive.
Sadly, with today being the very day that the new Nexus had been rumored for release and still not so much as a peep being heard from either Google or Samsung, it is now looking like the early December predictions are the new best estimates – though a 2012 release date is now once again well and truly on the cards.
