Android 2 already has successor planned

Google confirmed that it already has a major update to Android 2.x in the pipeline tonight with word of its next codename. Android Senior Product Manager Erick Tseng in an interview told The Engadget Show that the next revision is nicknamed "Froyo," short for "frozen yogurt." The naming is in sync with past Android revisions' dessert themes, as 1.6 was nicknamed "Donut" and 2.0 was "Eclair."

What features are in store haven't been mentioned, but Google normally reserves these codenames for significant milestones and often makes them public only when they're within a few months of release. Version 2.0 added a much updated web browser, voice recognition and numerous other important new features, while even 2.1 adds animated backgrounds and other more noticeable changes. So far, updates have been spaced out in roughly half-year intervals.
