Android engineer confirms Ice Cream Sandwich as next version

updated 05:45 pm EDT, Mon May 2, 2011

Android Ice Cream Sandwich identified by engineer

Google's first post-3.0 (Honeycomb) release of Android was given a formal name this weekend after an e-mail from Android engineer Romain Guy. A response to an outstanding bug promised that it would be fixed "in Ice Cream Sandwich." The name had surfaced in rumors, but until the Droid-Life copy had just been named Ice Cream by Google or nothing at all.

The OS had already been confirmed by Google as the first to bring some of Honeycomb's features to phones and other devices smaller than tablets. Little else has been mentioned of what Ice Cream Sandwich would do.

Google is rumored to have already made the OS code complete and ready to show at the Google I/O conference next week. With the exception of the Nexus S and possibly the Nexus One, however, it might not show on production hardware until significantly later. Most phone makers have yet to upgrade hardware to Android 2.3.

    I don't know Arne


    That looks a bit too busy. Not very Apple clean-uncluttered-like. Nice concept though.
