Android 4.0 to be Known as Ice Cream; to Follow Gingerbread & Honeycomb

October 18, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

While all of us are waiting to know more about Google’s Gingerbread and Honeycomb Android operating systems, new reports are suggesting that the OS which will be following those versions will be known as Ice Cream.

As you know, Android 2.2 Froyo (frozen yogurt) is the most recently released operating system from Google. It is believed that the OS that is coming after Froyo is Android 3.0 and it is expected to be called Gingerbread. Gingerbread is rumored to bring a revamped UI, video chatting features and could have minimum spec requirements.

Even less is known about the OS that is expected to come after Gingerbread, which has been assumed to be Android 3.5 and is expected to be called Honeycomb. It is thought that Honeycomb is being made specifically for tablets.

Now, the latest information has revealed that the OS after Honeycomb will be Android 4.0 and it will be known as Ice Cream. As reported from Droid-Life, the new name was revealed by ARM president Tudor Brown and it once again follows Google’s tradition of naming their mobile operating systems after desserts.

Now, we have the name of the OS, but the features of it are yet to be revealed. There has been no confirmation on the matter from Google, but there has also been no denial of the OS.
