    I’ll start off by thanking everyone that joined our live blog covering the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich event.

    Now while some lucky media get to toy around the with the Galaxy Nexus in person I’ll be going through the blog and summarising all the main points we learnt for you.

    We could do with a [strikethrough] tag.

    Its probably more fair to say that ICS is bringing in many of the features present on popular apps and skins to the main OS than supporting iOS features.

    Lock screen stuff as an example has been available on custom ROMS for a while and officially via HTC Sense on their handsets. Google voice has been working well for a while now and there are a bunch of decent voice contol apps out there.

    EDIT: The buttons thing is more of a fix for the varied nature of the devices. There are a bunch of tablets on 2.x for example that have no hard buttons. On other devices e.g. 3.0 tablets the hard buttons are there. So this is providing flexibility in one OS for both types of device... rather than being an aesthetic move to an Apple style.
