When Android 2.0 was released, a few 1.6 phones took months to update to the new OS. When 2.1 was released, the same thing happened again. When 2.2 Froyo was released, all 2.1 phones now are still updating to the new OS. With Gingerbread next, and then Honeycomb, there’s another version of Android that might cause more pain, amongst more improvement: ice cream. That’s right, soon your Android phone three full versions away from now will run an operating system codenamed “Ice Cream”, possibly with a 4.x or 3.xx naming scheme.
That is awesome. The source of the naming comes from ARM president Tudor Brown, who blurted to Forbes that Ice Cream would be the name Google would choose once they get to “i”.
