When Will Australia See The New Google Goodies?

Google made a lot of announcements on the first day of its IO event in the US today, including the exciting Google Music service, Ice Cream Sandwich Android update and Android@home. But when will we see them in Australia?

Gus over at Lifehacker has taken an educated guess at the Australian rollout of the new Google services. It’s well worth reading his reasoning why, but he thinks we’ll see Google Music as the service scales up over time, we should see Ice Cream Sandwich some time around Q4 this year (or early next year) and we’ll almost positively never see the movie renting option due to local licensing deals.

Personally, I just hope this stuff arrives soon, especially Google Music. Having an online backup of all my tunes would be welcome security.
