The debut of Ice Cream Sandwich may be delayed, but fear not: You can get a tasty sampling right now.

A mountain of material showing off what appears to be Google's next-gen Android release popped up on the InterNerfs this morning. Did I mention it also shows a snazzy new phone that looks an awful lot like the Nexus Prime -- or Samsung Galaxy Nexus, as it may end up being called?

If all of that isn't enough, some European tech sites have published high-res images of the software in action, too.
