    [Rumor] Android Ice Cream OS Will Merge Phone, Tablet, & GoogleTV Into One


    A recent industry rumor indicates that Google intends to make the Android Ice Cream OS a combination of the Android phone, tablet and GoogleTV OS's. For some time, they have wanted to create a single project for all three code-bases, and the next OS, Ice Cream, will merge these together. Furthermore, the same 'intel' suggests that Google intends to officially announce this at Google IO in May. Additional industry speculation suggests this is the primary reason why Google delayed the source code release of Honeycomb. Also it is because Google wants to further reduce fragmentation and is a an initial push to make cross-platform apps easier to create for GoogleTV developers in the future.

    This is something I could get behind. I think this would be a huge selling point for Google.
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)

    Seems logical to me. I certainly hope that this doesn't mean one OS installation for all 3 types of devices, though. If you think Verizon's bloatware is bad enough, just think about the gigs of data used up by unused Icrecream apps for other devices.

    ChromeOS is an entirely different OS. It would not make sense to bundle it with Android OS's.
