Yesterday Google officially announced Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich", an upcoming update that delivers a massive redesign of the user interface and a bunch of new features.

Some of the highlights include an NFC-enabled feature called Android Beam, offline search in Gmail, new lock screen features and a fancy unlocking method called "Face Unlock," which uses facial recognition to ensure strangers can't use your phone without permission.
