There is some nice looking features in Ice Cream Sandwich, but I think in the real world face recognition to unlock will be too slow. My cameras will all face detect from photos, so I suspect (but obviously dont know for a fact) anyone could get in to your phone with a photograph. Not that I think theifs would have pictures of me, I'm more concerned about 'friends' unlocking my phone with a facebook pic on their phone, then posting incrimonating statuses or setting alarms at 4 in the morning.
I like the translating voicemails to text, thats a really useful feature.

Don't let that stop you though!
Main feature to catch my eye was the panoramic picture mode, that was the best thing about my old Nokia Nseries phones, used to enjoy taking pictures like that, taken Google long enough to bring that in.
No signature worth mentioning...
It was actually quite funny - during the demo - the unlock feature didnt work. It failed to recognise his photo as the lighting wasnt very good.
I liked the old method you used to see on some laptops where it used your fingerprint to unlock.
Dunno but my HTC doesn't have the option running on 2.3.3, so I guess Samsung added the feature themselves. This, I presume, is built into the OS by Google in 4.0.
I wish! a 16 year refund would be pretty awesome.
Ice cream sandwich??? - is it just me or is that a really stupid name for a software version?
Android versions have all been named after sweets; gingerbread, honeycomb, froyo (frozen yogurt). The latest version is called ice cream sandwich, also because it has brought both the tablet & the mobile platforms together, as in a sandwich.
