BGR has some new sourced info on the Ice Cream Sandwich devices that Andy Rubin hinted about earlier this year:

On the ‘Prime’ which they call a the next Google-branded superphone:

  • Samsung will manufacture
  • “Super AMOLED HD” [720P?]
  • TI OMAP4460 [really?! Not Dually Orion chip from Samsung?!]
To us, ‘Prime’ seems to be a hint at perhaps an LG tie-up with their popular Optimus line.

Perhaps most interestingly, they say there won’t just be 1 device at launch, multiple halo devices will come from multiple  carriers:

Imagine flagship releases from Motorola, HTC, and LG with Ice Cream Sandwich available on AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, and Sprint all at practically the same time… in addition to a Google Nexus handset from Samsung.

How about devices with Qualcomm Gobi/LTE Chips that work on all four carriers in the US and across the globe?
