Google to release Ice Cream (Android 2.4) in June/July to keep you cool during the hot summer?
Here comes another smartphone soap opera about the future of Android as it's now reported that Android 2.4 is actually ... Ice Cream!

This report, which cites "multiple sources familiar with the matter", implies that Ice Cream is set to be announced during Google I/O 2011 conference between May 10-11, and launched in either June or July this year.

Previous reports stated that Ice Cream is set to be Android 4.0, which makes this rumour dubious, but who knows - come May, Google may add a new letter to its happy Android family - by now, we have Cupcake (C), Donut (D), Eclair (E), Froyo (F), Gingerbread (G), Honeycomb (H) - and Ice Cream (I) is sure to follow, the only question is when.

What do you think of Android 2.4 - is it going to be Ice Cream or something else?

I'm also confused... The nexus s comes stock with "Android 2.3 Gingerbread"... If anything would be 2.4, it would be honeycomb. Ice cream could maybe pass for 3.0 or something. Your asking us if we think 2.4 will be gingerbread (something already released) or ice cream (2 updates away)? Where does honeycomb fall into the mix? Correct me if I'm wrong but do you guys proof read what you write before posting? it makes no sense to me.

I see how skipping to 3.0 for tablets and then back to 2.4 for the next update could make sense but i'm still left confused by this article. Why ask the question if we think 2.4 will be gingerbread if gingerbread is already released and confirmed as 2.3? PA should just remove this article as it proves no point but to mislead and confuse its readers.

Frankie, You must have recieved the Froyo update as the first update. But Samsung has confirmed that even Gingerbread update will be available for Galaxy S. When is the question. But they have confirmed it. So sit tight for more releases your way.

I think 3.0 honeycomb is going to be the start of the Tablet era of Android names. Which won't leave much room for phones really. If we are going to see 2.4 soon then that leaves us a marginal .5 update proportion. Unless they have plans to try and jump to Android 4.0 or something. As far I have been able to track down though, 3.0 is strictly larger screens over 7" HD capables tablets. According to Google all other OS version were never meant to be on tablets at all. Should be an interesting next couple of years though.
