Just in time for the heat to require such tasty treats! An anonymous source has reported that Android 2.4 Ice Cream will be released right around the June / July summer time of the year THIS year, 2011. As you may already know, the name fits as the alphabetical names do add up to an I: Doughnut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, then Ice Cream.
The source, speaking with Pocket Lint and refusing to allow the public to know their name or affiliation, Android 2.4 will be announced somewhere around Google’s IO conference at the beginning of May 2011. This of course puts to rest the idea that Honeycomb will be released as 2.4 – especially since it was just announced as 3.0, but I have a bit of wonder in my mind on why they’d go from 2.3 to 3.0 then back to 2.4, unless they don’t plan on advancing past 2.9 with Android for mobile phones? We shall see.[Via Pocket Lint]
