    Is it just me or the Samsung Galaxy Nexus looks like it is a webOS device? It reminds me of the Touchpad, Pre 3 and of course that slate rumor pic we saw before.

    I hope the build quality has improved, as I had an Samsung Nexus S and it was terrible!

    this is exactly what i was about to post, ice cream sandwich gets some webos UI style, at least some:
    Lockscreen (but nice one with direct camera launching)
    Permanent search bar

    Are you kidding me? Device looks nothing like webos device. And new android looks nothing like webos either.

    “Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall. We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced.”
    Samsung and Google postpone Ice Cream Sandwich and Galaxy Nexus -- Engadget


    Apple "only" with iphone 4s , Google/Samsung postponing Galaxy Nexus - oh HP screw you

    The search bar is not permanent. It is just a widget that you can remove, or move to a different location.

    Also, most all of these UI elements have more in common with Honecomb than webos. Although it can be argued that Honeycomb cribbed a few webos elements months back (not that I see that as a bad thing.)

    some reason if there's new stuffs come out on the market, webOS fans always think some how they copied webOS. Well, webOS is dead now, maybe it's good thing if other os copy the webOS features. However, i still don't see new Galaxy Nexus looks like webOS device.

    It looks like Honeycomb on a phone. Which is pretty much what they have been saying ICS would look like since honeycomb was released.

    As for the phone itself, it looks a lot like a lot of the other phones out there (minus the dedicated buttons.) Look at the Nexus S head on and the shape is pretty much the same.

    I am sorry, I don't think this looks like a webOS phone. It looks like an Android phone from Samsung.... which, oddly enough, is exactly what it is....
    If you like my Themes, please donate! Thanks!

    It doesn't look like ICS copied webOS. I think webOS looks better. I do like the menu transitions in ICS, but I didn't like the widget menu or the launcher bar. I think Gingerbread looks better than ICS. However, the video was a little grainy so I will wait until I see it in person.

    Mathias Duarte is now at Google. If it looks similar and that is a big if as i believe it looks more like honeycomb, it will be because both are being built by the same guy.

    I am really curious to see what Mathias brings to android. It is hightime android gets a consistent user intrface/experience.

    Well Matias Duarte is there at Google now...

    Although the skin is more square like and less elegant, the reality is there are many functional facets of ICS that appear to be modified more mature features from webOS.

    - unlock screen
    - swipe to delete
    - multitasking (snapshots with flick to close)
    - launcher/folder icon moving
    - synergy like contact connections
    - Touch-to-share (Android Beam)

    While I'm not yet sold, it's slightly depleted my fanatical love for webOS.
    Palm V → TX → Centro → HTC Legend → TouchPad/Pre 3(UK) → HTC One X → Nexus 4/iPad Mini → Pre 3/TouchPad Go

    It's definitely got some webOS DNA brought over from Matias.

    If you watched the live webcast remember Matias said this is just a first step. So I expect Android to become more webOSy in the future.

    Just finished watching the live event on youtube and was wondering if Google purchased WebOS.

    If only he brought some common sense. Gmail and Email still separate apps, messaging seems to still only include texting (Google talk is separate), People only includes Google+...

    I don't mind people stealing from webOS, because when I need to get another phone, I want it to work as well as webOS does for me... but someone needs to steal Synergy already.
