HTC and NASA have teamed up to launch a few of their powerful smartphones into the outer depths of space. This certainly isn't the first time we've talked about this. Back in 2010 NASA sent the Nexus One to the outer edges of the atmosphere and recorded it all, and we've even seen the Nexus S do similar tasks. Today however HTC is confirming a few details on their aging smartphone making its way to space.

4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ports hitting devices. We spotted a few yesterday and this afternoon we have a video demo of Android 4.0 running on the famous Google Nexus One.

(or Nexus Prime in this case) ranks up there with ravenous hoards of Android-based automatons bent on the destruction of the human race - and Nexus isn't going to kill you, so that's saying something! What we've got today is another leak of information from Samsung on their upcoming device very likely called the Nexus Prime. What this magical mystical future device is said to be holding is the first and most vanilla flavored Ice Cream Sandwich of them all, and today Samsung has been discovered to be hosting a webpage that all but confirms the handset's existence.
