    Honeycomb To Be Called Android 2.4, Not 3.0?


    Since originally reported, Honeycomb has been said to be 3.0, but a new rumor/report from sites like Pocketnow and Androidpolice says 2.4 might be the right number. These reports are more accurately known as site logs, and both sites have pointed out that they have received visits from devices identifying themselves as Android 2.4 based devices. While the number of devices with this log is still very low, thatís actually a good sign because, as far as I know, none of us here have a honeycomb based device just yet. Itís also known that faking your deviceís identification is fairly easy, but who would really go through all that just to throw us off.

    Regardless, what do you guys think of this? Do you mind the number change or, like me, you donít really care since itís the same software. How do you think Google judges these numbers? How did they go from 1.6-2.0 but have been using 2.X for such a long time. Give us what you think in a reply below.

    This doesn't surprise me. They probably won't change the 2 unless a major update is released, like when 5.0 was released to replace 4.7 for Blackberry.

    It's just a number. I look forward to seeing how honeycomb works.

    I'm with Hook. Could care less about the "number" as long as it has the tablet features that we need to be able to get some decent tablets.
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    I've heard major device manufacturers calling Honeycomb 3.0, so I'm not buying this till I see more about it. However, if Honeycomb is basically Gingerbread (which is basically FroYo) with a slightly different wrapper then they have no business calling it 3.0. We shall see.

    I'd say to accurately point out what the number might be w nerf a list of features to expect, because the 2.x or 3.x etc depends on things added to the os I'm sure.

    Supposedly 3.0 is supposed to bring about a complete UI overhaul with features like revamped music, built in media streaming, etc. Whether or not 3.0 is Gingerbread, idk.

    Gingerbread in 2.3 and on my nexus s and everyone else's too. Motor is reporting their tab with honeycomb and 3.0 I guess they could be wrong

    Now I think that it would be 2.4. To Android get on 3.0, it would need a lot of improvements, like it was done on 1.6 to 2.0. I don't think that Honeycomb would have more improvements than Tablet support. It's just going to be a 2.3 Gingerbread optimized for tablets

    Dual core support/optimization and multi-threading isn't enough of a major overhaul for you?

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.
