According to a source who is a developer and has worked on different versions of Android, the Honeycomb build of the Android OS is coming as soon as February and will be Android 2.4. While most have been expecting the software to come to market as Android 3.0, it seems that Google wants to hold off on using the 3.0 label for a more all-encompassing upgrade that would bring dramatic changes to the software.
After Honeycomb will come Ice Cream and Jellybean. One of those could be the 3.0 release. For now, though we still need to see Android 2.3 get downloaded on qualifying handsets, not to mention getting Froyo on all Google models that are scheduled to receive Android 2.2.
