Android post-3.0 should be called Honeycomb

Next Android gets name, likely minor update

Android's next build after 3.0 has been given a tentative name in a leak on Thursday. More than one tip to TechRadar has it keeping with the dessert theme and referring to the new release as Honeycomb. Android 2.2 is currently referred to as Froyo where 3.0 should get the already confirmed Gingerbread badge.

Given timing, Honeycomb is likely to be an interim update that adds features which missed the original 3.0 release or were developed in between major revisions. Such updates aren't necessarily minor, as Android 2.2 produces significant leaps in performance and adds heavily requested though not major changes such as Bluetooth voice dialing and the infrastructure for Voice Actions.

With Android 3.0 unofficially slated for the fall, Honeycomb is most likely to arrive in early 2011.
