Google held two big events within 24 hours: one with its subsidiary Motorola in New York, and another with its partner Samsung in Hong Kong. While there was some loose speculation around the web that maybe we’d see a new Xoom tablet or a preview of the next Galaxy Tab running Android’s new Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the focus was rightly on what Google, Motorola and Samsung do best: making really great Android smartphones. Ice Cream Sandwich is billed as Google’s unified mobile OS, working the same way on both tablets and smartphones. So far, though, what that means (as Google’s Hugo Berra wrote after Google I/O this summer) is that “Ice Cream Sandwich will bring everything you love about Honeycomb on your tablet to your phone.” It’s about making the phone experience bigger, more interactive, more capable. It’s about making the phone literally bigger — the Galaxy Nexus has a 4.65″, 1280 by 720 pixel screen, which while not unprecedented, is still really big for a smartphone, and way bigger than the 3.7″ Nexus One screen.
