Android Ice Cream Sandwich event moved to October 19 in Hong Kong

Google Android logoGoogle and Samsung have rescheduled their Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich launch event for October 19—and the event has been moved out of the US and restaged in Hong Kong. Some PR shots for the cancelled October 11 event suggested that the companies would also be launching the Nexus Prime smartphone, though actual confirmation has yet to slip.

The two companies originally planned a launch event for October 11 at the CTIA Wireless show in San Diego, but cancelled it a few days before, citing Steve Jobs’ recent passing. Initial speculation indicated the event would be rescheduled for late October in London, but the event has been reset even further around the world, far away from the press outlets that would have been able to cover the original event.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will definitely feature at the event, and the new Samsung Nexus phone will likely make an appearance as well. An event is scheduled earlier that day in New York City for Verizon and Motorola Mobility, where current speculation and ads shouting “faster, thinner, smarter, stronger” suggest another phone launch, possibly the Droid Razr.

The Google/Samsung Hong Kong event is scheduled for 10pm EST October 18, 10am local time on October 19. Ars will be monitoring the livestream of the event next week.
