Android Ice Cream to follow Gingerbread and Honeycomb

Google Android

Google has yet to formally unveil Gingerbread (expected to become Android 3.0) and Honeycomb (the incremental Android 3.5 release) but work already is underway on a follow-up release. While nothing is known about what is likely to become Android 4.0, its codename appears to have been revealed.

According to a revelation made by ARM president Tudor Brown to Forbes, Google 4.0 will be codenamed Ice Cream. While Brown does not work for Google, Forbes suggests that he would be familiar with Android’s roadmap thanks to his role.

Google refused to confirm the codename, confirming only Gingerbread and Honeycomb in a statement:

“The next platform release names are Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Additional timing and details have not been released yet.”

Google has been naming Android releases after alphabetically-ordered dessert names since Android 1.5 which was codenamed Cupcake.
