  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich can save all of your e-mails from the past 30 DAYS for offline browsing! We knew it had cacheing power, but damn!
  • You can also save webpages for offline browsing, for those times when you're using your phone in Airplane mode but don't want to miss this morning's headlines.
  • ICS's browser allows you to leave up to 16 webpages open at the same time. Boom!
  • There's now an equalizer baked into ICS, allowing you to mess with bass and 3D effects.
  • Android's new dictation software allows you to add smiley faces to text messages simply by saying "smiley face." Ha. A small thing, but nice, no?
  • About that dictation software: it seems to have improved quite a lot over older versions, and can update messages as you talk, rather than forcing you to wait for it to process your statement.
  • The visual voicemail API is buried in the software, meaning it'll probably be used by various carriers on future permutations of ICS on other devices. But yay! Visual voicemail is a real treat.
  • ICS contains software that can read the temperature and humidity of the air around it. Yes, you heard right, folks: future Androids are one step closer to becoming full on personal meteorologists.
