Android 4 is the latest version of Google's Android Operating System. It has been code-named as the 'Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS)'. The Android 4 OS has been designed by Google to be used in both cell phones and PC tablets. Google has mentioned that Android 4 brings together the best of both Gingerbread and Honeycomb, the previous two versions of Android, but also has new features that will make using cell phones or tablet a much richer experience.
The animations have been refined and enhanced to offer you a better experience. The most noticeable change with Ice Cream Sandwich is the interface. In the new Android 4 OS, Google has tried to make the common functions more accessible which allow more natural and flowing navigation around the operating system. It might follow the same principles as the previous Android version, but the way it is used is radically different in a number of ways. The Android 4 is designed to work with buttons. Now to navigate around you will be offered three soft-keys: Back, Home and Multitasking. Multitasking has been made easier and more seamless, with the bonus of re-sizable widgets and customized home screens.
It even offers the favorite tray feature which can be seen on all screens. If you will be using an Android 4 tablet that may at any point of time have many screens to flip through so if you have your favorites lined up to flip through will be a nice feature. An Android 4 tablet will now have better Wi-Fi and network connectivity and will highlight which applications are using what data. This feature will be of great help for the people who have a tendency of going beyond their network usage every month so that they come to know which application is causing the most data usage and can keep a check on it.
The security has been enhanced a lot in this latest version as it will have the face unlock feature. Android 4 Tablets will take a giant leap, much ahead of the previous versions once launched. Well nothing has been decided or disclosed yet, as in when is Android 4 OS being launched because it was only some time back that the Android 3 honeycomb operating system was releases. So the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system may take some time from now. But at this stage it seems that it is going to deliver on its promise.
