Feeling hungry? Google officially unveiled Ice Cream Sandwich, the newly revamped version of its Android operating system, at an event in Hong Kong last night. Along with Samsung, the company also introduced a brand new flagship phone called the Galaxy Nexus.

Ice Cream Sandwich -- also known as Android 4.0 -- marks the start of a new chapter for Google's mobile operating system. Compared to Gingerbread and other past phone editions, the ICS OS is completely redesigned and jam-packed with tons of fresh and exciting stuff.

I'll be looking at ICS and the new Nexus in much more detail soon. For now, though, if you missed the event, it's well worth watching.
