Android 4 gets Ice Cream codename

Although Android 3.0 still hasn't been announced, ARM president Tudor Brown revealed the very earliest detail of 4.0 in a talk published late Friday. The future OS would be codenamed Ice Cream and would follow after 3.0, known as Gingerbread, as well as an interim release known as Honeycomb. Google has always named its Android releases after desserts.

The mobile OS' creator has refused to comment beyond acknowledging Gingerbread and Honeycomb, but Forbes noted that Brown would have privileged access to Google's long-term roadmap. He would need to know which features Google wants to implement and what processors would support them. None of Ice Cream's features have been unveiled so far.

Exact rollout schedules have never been given out, but Gingerbread could be ready before the end of the fall while Honeycomb would arrive early into 2011. The timing could put 4.0's debut as soon as mid-2011, although the company has so far usually kept major releases near the end of the year.
