While the event doesn’t specifically mention the focus of the event will be “Ice Cream Sandwich,” the next version of Google’s mobile OS, the invite itself features the iconic Android character in the form of an ice cream sandwich. You do the math.
The event will also be the official debut of the Samsung Nexus Prime, which will be the first smartphone to run the new Google OS. The Nexus Prime reportedly contains a dual-core 1.2 to 1.5 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 4G LTE.
The Google-Samsung event was originally scheduled for Oct. 11 but was delayed out of respect follow Steve Jobs’s death.
The other big question you all may have is why are Google and Samsung showing off the new Android OS in Hong Kong? Why not do it in San Francisco, where most technology journalists live? The answer is that the event corresponds with the AllThingsD‘s AsiaD Conference, which kicks off not long after the Google-Samsung press conference. Andy Rubin and a Samsung executive will be speaking at the conference, presumably about Ice Cream Sandwich and the Nexus Prime.
