After Google’s Android 2.3 as Gingerbread now the search engine is all set to launch its latest version Android 2.4 with the name Ice Cream in this summer, said a report by Pocket-lint.
Though Andy Rubin, the Android chief informed TechCrunch, “Up until now we weren’t sure what it’d be called at all, with best guesses being Ice Cream because of the whole alphabetical order deal (Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and now Ice Cream)”. TechCrunch also reported this version is going to be called not Ice Cream but Ice Cream Sandwich.
Google has a typical naming scheme for its OS. So this time Ice Cream also came under it.
Android 2.2 (Froyo) was announced at Google I/O last May while Gingerbread was confirmed last October and began rolling out in December. Now it’s Ice Cream’s turn to get into the market.
However, according to Pocket-lint, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc was running the yet-to-be-announced mobile OS on the show floor at CES in Las Vegas last week.
On the other hand, Sony Ericson told Pocket-lint that this show was actually owing to a software corruption issue on the device.
Whatever the name Google will finally announce for the new Version, this summer will be most awaiting as the search engine will arrive with its new mobile OS.
