Android 4.0 dubbed Ice Cream

Next-gen version will follow Gingerbread and Honeycomb

No news yet on what features futuristic version of Google OS will rock.

Android 3.0 Gingerbread isn’t set to be fully detailed until the end of 2010, with its successor, Android 3.5 Honeycomb, not expected to break cover until well into 2011.

But already news of Android 4.0 is starting to slip out. See, ARM president Tudor Brown has told Forbes that the fourth edition of Google’s awesome OS will be called Ice Cream. This would make sense seeing as it follows the alphabetical pattern the Big has taken until now. That and it’s the name of a dessert, just like all the others.

What Android Ice Cream will bring to the party remains a mystery. Features of Android 3.0 Gingerbread remain up-in-the-air, although talk of an all-new UI has been doing the rounds for some time.

While most of us are still only just getting Android 2.2 onto our Google blowers, it’s good to know Mountain View is keeping up its traditions of bizarre names for its mobile operating system. Tell us what you want from Android Ice Cream on our Facebook and Twitter pages now.
