Next Version Of Android OS To Be Called ‘Ice Cream’

Google could be unveiling its next generation of the Android operating system for smartphones during the Google I/O that is traditionally held in Spring. According to reports, this new version of Android – version 2.4 – could be named Ice Cream. This is keeping in line with Google’s tradition to name each of their upcoming Android handsets with the name of a dessert in alphabetical order.

This time however, there are some interesting version inconsistencies. You would know that the recently unveiled Android platform for tablets shall be called HoneyComb and will be version 3.0 of Android. Now with the roll out of Android 2.4 – which is expected to bring a number of HoneyComb features to smartphones – the company could be stepping onto some confusing nomenclature.

Do you think carrying on with a v2.4 name even though v3.0 is already on its way is a good idea? Tell us in the comments.
