    [UPDATED] Next Android OS for Smartphones Will be 2.4 'Ice Cream Sandwich'


    For now, this story officially stays as an unofficial 'rumor', but supposedly, the next Android OS for our smartphones will actually be Android 2.4 afterall, and actually will be called... Ice Cream. Really... after Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread and Honeycomb... now we get some "Ice Cream"? Seems like Google is trying to fatten us up or something.

    Seriously though, It actually fits the logic. Most of the intelligence coming out of CES indicated that Android 3.0 Honeycomb would be Tablet-specific only for now. They are keeping with the dessert theme, and the rumor also says that "Ice Cream" will probably come out in June or July, which fits the timeline that Google said they were trying to 'slow down' toward. Interesting. Now I'm hungry...

    [Update] It seems the rumors were partially true for next iteration of Android 2.4... Apparently, Andy Rubin himself mentioned in passing to a 'Techcrunch' journalist that the next Android will not be called 'Ice Cream'; it will be called Ice Cream Sandwich. This is to differentiate from Froyo which is a soft serve ice cream dessert. Now that that's cleared up I'm sure that solving world-peace isn't too far behind...

    Probably a goofy question. Can current phones run Ice Cream?

    Thanks,

    I hope the Droid X will get this or if it will only be compatible on 2 core phones.

    Engaget's show did indeed show Matias Duarte. He said that Honeycomb wuld be on all devices and it would not just be tablet specific. Honeycomb is the next tier in the OS. Exclusive interview: Google's Matias Duarte talks Honeycomb, tablets, and the future of Android -- Engadget

    I will believe Matias over this rumor. Maybe the it will be called Ice Cream though... I do have to say that its not very original though. They need a more exotic type of desert than Ice Cream. (kinda bland if you ask me)
    Turtle bit me.I thought they were slow....they snap so fast. ................. <3
