Earlier it was reported that after Gingerbread i.e. Android 2.3, the next version of Android will be called as “Ice Cream”, but today it is clarified that Android 2.4 will have code name as “Ice Cream Sandwich”. As now Android 3.0 i.e. Honeycomb which is specially designed Android version for tablet devices was presented in CES 2011 thru Motorola Xoom, this next version of Android is expected in Summer 2011.
TechCrunch reported that Android chief Andy Rubin told them about the next version of Android OS i.e. 2.4 that the code name will is “Ice Cream Sandwich”. As it is bit difficult to differentiate between “Ice Cream” and “Frozen Yoghurt” (code name for Android 2.2) visually, so Android team chosen “Ice Cream Sandwich” as the code name for the next Android version.
Anyway, we will have to wait for at least 2 – 3 months to see more updates about Android 2.4 i.e. “Ice Cream Sandwich”.
