Google Might Name Next Android Version as Ice Cream Sandwich

Google Might Name Next Android Version as Ice Cream Sandwich

Cupcake. Donut. Eclair. Froyo. Gingerbread. And finally, Honeycomb. Google's Android OS has come a long way, with so many iterations that came with it over the last two years. Looking at the list, it's easy to see how Google does its naming of the versions - desserts, in alphabetical order. So, the next version should start with an I, and word has it that it will be not just Ice Cream, but Ice Cream Sandwich. What's the logic behind it?

TechCrunch - Looking at this photo, it doesn’t take long to identify the biggest problem with naming a future version of Android ‘Ice Cream’. Namely, there’s really no way to differentiate between soft-serve ice cream and frozen yogurt. Yes, Google engineers could waste countless man-hours attempting to adjust the consistency of the sculpture to reflect the difference in milk-fat. But apparently Google doesn’t think that’s a good use of their time.

This new name is going to be quite a mouthful, but when it comes to desserts, there are only so many to go through with the letter I. Off the top of our head, we wished Google had created a poll to request for a potential dessert name for its Android version I (at this point, we aren't sure if it's Android 3.X, or Android 2.X). In the meantime, read about how news of the upcoming Android version's name came about over here.
