Will Android 2.4 Be Called Ice Cream, Come This Summer?

Will Android 2.4 Be Called Ice Cream, Come This Summer?
 
 

Would you like one or two scoops of the latest version of Android? Version 2.4 is reportedly going to be called "Ice Cream" and should be due out in about six months.

Even though Android 3.0, otherwise known as Honeycomb, is expected to become available in the coming months, Google is apparently also working on Android 2.4, codenamed Ice Cream, at the same time, according to a report from mobile enthusiast site Pocket Lint. Confused yet?

So here's the rundown. Android 3.0 is essentially a reboot of Google's mobile platform. It'll carry stricter hardware specifications and make development a bit more streamlined. But since it's going back to the basics, current Android phones aren't expected to get the 3.0 upgrade.

That's where Android 2.4 comes in. This will be an update to the phone software for those phones that already exist, while new advanced devices will look to 3.0 and beyond. Alright, so it's still a bit confusing, but in someone's mind it makes sense.

Even for those customers with an existing Android phone, many haven't even been upgraded to the most current version available now, Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread. In fact, almost no one has that version of the OS. Instead, Google's still trying to get everyone up to version 2.2. It's a real mess out there. Android 3.0's sounding pretty good right about now, isn't it?

As of now, the news of Android 2.4 is just a rumor, but given how quickly Google has been doling out software updates over the past several months, we wouldn't be at all surprised if it turned out to be true.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
