Next Version of Android Almost Confirmed to be Ice Cream Sandwich

It’s no secret that the next version of Android will utilize the same naming convention as all previous versions and will undoubtedly start with an “I”.  It’s also become pretty obvious that they have gone the semi-obvious route and chosen a variation of the words “Ice Cream”, with signs at this stage clearly pointing towards it being “Ice Cream Sandwich” at launch.  We had heard this name back in January, but thanks to Android master Romain Guy, we may have just received a confirmation from Google.  In response to a bug posted to the Android support forums, Mr. Guy revealed that there would be a fix coming in “Ice Cream Sandwich.”  So, does that put this non-controversy to bed?

Cheers Mike and everyone!

    Was there an A and B for android or did they start at Cupcake?

      Cupcake was 1.0, if it had an A and a B they were alpha and beta versions who’s names weren’t publicized.

    Are new versions of Android coming out at a slower rate now? If so I am glad as I feel they are really spending more time to get it right.

    How bout we get gingerbread out to some more phones before we even start talking about the next update that no ones gonna get…

  • clvbrowns453

    The fact that the thunderbolt doesn’t have gingerbread yet is absolutely shameful. There’s no excuse for this.

    It couldn’t have been ice cream because they already have froyo. I think that this will make for a pretty awesome statue

        Awesome. I think we can safely say that ICS will be Android 3.1. I wonder if this will merge the tablet and phone versions? Seems likely…

          Or is it 2.4?

          • Anonymous

            Based on the bug report (which is a bug in Honeycomb) it should be in the 3.x branch (which we all hope the 2.x branch is getting merged into ASAP). Guess we’ll find out next week!
