Nexus S Running Ice Cream Sandwich Demonstrated Got ‘Remotely Locked and Wiped’

A two minutes video footage from an anonymous source showing off Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) mobile operating system.

According to report, this tipster bought a Samsung Nexus S smartphone on eBay. However when he received the phone he found that it was actually running a build of Android 4.0. If this is true and not some very elaborate hoax, it might mean that the phone he received was at one time in the hands of a Google employee that was testing out the new operating system.

The video embedded right below shows, that pressing the home button for a long time generates a vertical menu that’s similar to the tablet-only Android 3.0 operating system.

There’s also a new Google App icon that when pressed brings up an number of different Google online services.

The notification bar, camera UI and other menus also have a much different look.

Engadget is reporting that the tipster further confirmed that shortly after this video was posted online, his Nexus S was remotely locked and wiped. You can follow the entire saga over at this XDA Developers thread.
