I haven't seen anything about it in the features list, but the thing I was looking forward to most with ICS was being able to send digital audio through USB. That feature would mean near-reference-quality audio from any compatible Android device independently of its hardware so long as you used an external powered DAC/Amp (such as the one Fiio's been talking about making available for roughly $90).

Does anyone know whether Google implemented that feature? People who must have that same feature right now end up spending $1000 for a Cypher Labs Algorithm Solo and dedicated headphone amp for their iPhones. It would amount to a -$910 difference for Android/Fiio users.

There's always the ancient iRiver iHP-40, but it doesn't make calls.
