Android Developers YouTube Channel Confirms Ice Cream Sandwich Launch

Well folks, would you look at this. The official Android Developers YouTube channel has now confirmed we will see Android 2.4 (or 4.0) Ice Cream Sandwich detailed at the CTIA Samsung Unpacked event next week. While this isn't a big surprise seeing it from the official channel makes it even more official. We will be seeing the next Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich next week, and we'll be there live to bring you all the details.

LG leaked phone teaser could be the Nexus 3

Uh oh here we go again. A new photo has been released or leaked showing what seems to be a very sleek and shiny new phone from LG. It looks pretty darn similar to the leak of the HTC Nexus 3 that we posted about last week then later revealed to be a fake. According to the source this came from someone at LG so it could be a highly reliable photo.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Confirmed [Even More For Real This Time]

You know how all the bigtime Android iterations are named after desserts? Do you also see how the titles of these deserts have been released in alphabetical order? These Android titles go like so: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, and Honeycomb. This last version is the first tablet-specific version of Android and should, based on what we know at the moment, be considered as being developed aside from the main Android bloodline. That said, the next version's name has been "leaked" by a Google developer by the name of Romain Guy: Ice Cream Sandwich.

Android Ice Cream to Bring Honeycomb to Phones

In a surprise call to Phandroid, an anonymous source "familiar with the matter," as these things often go, has let the world know that Honeycomb will indeed be making its way to handsets, but not in the way anyone expected it to. Instead of evolving Android 2.3 Gingerbread to include elements from Honeycomb, they'll be toasting up an essentially brand new version of Android by the name of, you guessed it, Ice Cream.

Google planning Android “Ice Cream” tips ARM president

Google's nomenclature for their version of Android after Gingerbread and Honeycomb has been leaked, with ARM president Tudor Brown telling Forbes it would be known as "Ice Cream".  The move keeps with Google's traditional of alphabetically naming successive versions of Android. Gingerbread is being tipped as Android 3.0, while Honeycomb - which will presumably follow on in 2011 - is said to be Android 3.5.  Forbes - or Brown - suggests Ice Cream will be Android 4.0, though Google itself isn't saying anything and it's possible the names could refer to more incremental version numbers.
