Android 'Ice Cream Sandwich' coming October/November

Google's Eric Schmidt unveils the release schedule for Android's next tablet incarnation.

Well, well, well. Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt has unveiled the release schedule for Android's next tablet incarnation, codenamed 'Ice Cream Sandwich' during the Dreamforce conference.

Here's the relevant quote:

We have a new operating system, internally known as 'Ice Cream Sandwich' for some reason, which is being released in October/November, which everyone's really excited about.

There you have it. Unless Schmidt 'misspoke' then developers should be expecting an SDK (Software Development Kit) to hit soon.

Here's the entirety of Schmidt's piece over at Dreamforce. The video is over an hour long so if you want to jump to the Android tidbit, click here [30:25].
