I love the way that Google and Samsung are basically trolling the US tech press by announcing Ice Cream Sandwich and the first phone to run it—the Nexus Prime Galaxy or whatever—in Hong Kong six days from now, on Oct. 19 18 at 10PM eastern time.

Update: Oh I just realized All Things D was having a conference in Hong Kong at the same time, with some mighty good speakers—like Andy Rubin from Google. It all makes sense now. It's been a long day. Carry on.


If you recall, the event was planned for two days ago, but was postponed—the official line being that it was out of respect for the passing of Steve. You'll be able to watch the unveiling live at youtube.com/android.
