Android 2.4 due for April release

No sooner were we rubbing our hands at Android 2.3 AKA Gingerbread, Google have gone and announced 2.4 will be taking over, as early as April.

The rumour mill has been working overtime to try and find out what the new OS will be called, with the frontrunners being either Ice Cream, or er… Ice Cream Sandwich.
 
The reason? Google wants to run Honeycomb on smartphones in addition to tablets – which it cannot currently do on its current batch of single-core devices. The first handset to be rolled out with the new and improved OS is Viewsonic’s ViewPad 4, which is due to be unveiled at MWC this week with a launch date set for April.
 
Early specs on the ViewPad suggests it will pack a 4.1-inch screen, HD 720p video recording, Flash 10.1 and a 5mp auto focus camera. Impressive.
