If you’re craving something sweet you know you can always count on the Android team to give you your fix. OK, so they can’t really satiate your desire for snack foods and treats, but they sure can whet your appetite with the code names they assign to each new version of Android. Froyo (frozen yogurt) is the most recently released version at Android 2.2, and we are all eagerly awaiting Gingerbread. Reports surfaced a few months back pinning the Honeycomb name on the iteration to follow that (right now it is assumed that Gingerbread and Honeycomb will be Android 3.0 and 3.5 respectively, though this isn’t confirmed).
But for those extremely forward thinking individuals a report at Forbes is laying claim that the next next next version of Android will carry the name Ice Cream following the alphabetic pattern set up by previous releases. Forbes has it from ARM president Tudor Brown, though Google’s only comment on the matter reiterates the Gingerbread and Honeycomb names while neither confirming or denying Ice Cream.
We have to assume that they will go with two or three scoops as opposed to soft serve in order to make a distinction between Ice Cream and Froyo.
