    They are newer versions of the android operating system...gingerbread will be coming to certain phones via OTA and other phones thru devs making custom roms if your rooted, and honeycomb i believe is only goin to be for tablets but not for certain...

    You don't sound stupid. I asked the samething when I first got a droid. Everyone was talkin bout froyo (frozen yogurt). I had no idea what it was. I know how you feel.

    if yoda had a droid he would be running darkslide.
