Ice Cream Sandwich could find its way onto Android smartphones within weeks, according to Google's Andy Rubin.
Rubin confirmed to AllThingsD that the updated operating system will be released in "a matter of weeks" after the latest Ice Cream Sandwich phone - the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is released in November.
It's not known which OEMs will push the update, or which handsets it will be deployed on, but Google has said that it will be landing on all Gingerbread devices.
We're currently chasing manufacturers for news of updates, including Samsung, whose Galaxy S2 smartphone and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet should be frontrunners for the new update.
HTC, meanwhile, has said that it's "currently reviewing its features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans."
The biggest problem phone manufacturers face is in customising the new Android operating system with their custom overlays, such as HTC's Sense and Sony Ericsson's TimeScape.
However, this shouldn't be a problem for stock Android phones, such as the Samsung-manufactured Google Nexus S.
The information above is according to the TechRadar website source.
