Google has Good Humor; next OS release nearly confirmed as Ice Cream Sandwich
As we have reported, the next build of the Android OS is expected to be nicknamed Ice Cream Sandwich. This continues the tradition of naming each new build of Google's open source OS after a dessert in alphabetical order. We have seen Cupcake, Donuts, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb and now the sweet taste of Ice Cream Sandwich.

While not officially announced by the Mountain View based company, in a reply to an emailed question about an unknown issue by an AOSP forum member, Google's Romain Guy replied, "A bug fix will be provided in Ice Cream Sandwich." We could get confirmation at the approaching Google I/O.

While the image of ice cream and bugs doesn't really sound appealing, the race is already on to guess the dessert to be used for the software version after Ice Cream Sandwich. Jellybeans, anyone?

Microsoft is learning something from Google and Windows 7.5 will be Mango.
Google will take their names from desserts and Microsoft will take names from fruits,

That's cool but Android already chose the sweets and Microsoft chose the fruits! So Apple has to sue Microsft for choosing fruits cause Apple it's one of the fruits?! XD

Why do they keep moving on and on. Google needs to take a break of 2 to 3 years on updates. There are phones that haven't even touched honeycomb or near it. im stuck on 2.2 not even 2.3 yet. Evo Shift

Because Google and Android don't just stop and sit still, they keep moving on. They make the updates available as soon as they can. I like the quick timetable of updates; it makes me feel like they care about their product and are constantly working to improve it and make it more fun, more functional, and run smoother than before.

Also because of all the stupid low end androids that delay updates. why does google approve low end? its not making it available to more people, what they need an affordable smart phone that will defect in 2 months???

Not every *low end* smartphone defects, luis. Granted, Moto has yet to make a good low end smartphone, but HTC's Eris qualified as low end by the time it was finally axed, and the Bravo doesn't seem too bad either (it's not quite low end.)

Android is open source, which by definition means that it can be used by anybody for any device. So the better question is why the manufacturers bother making the lower end devices if they suck. the answer is that it widens their customer base. For instance, I tried the Cliq, which was mid range at best by the time I bought it. I wasn't entirely satisfied, but by that time I was hooked on Android and ready for a higher end experience.
