"The next iteration of Google's mobile operating system Android, following Gingerbread 3.0 due out later this year, is expected to be an incremental update to version 3.1 or 3.2 and dubbed "Honeycomb," according to reports.

"Android 2.2, or Froyo, is just now rolling out to smartphones including the Droid 2 and HTC Evo 4G, but the blog TechRadar today is citing "multiple sources" as confirming that the next version of Android will be called Honeycomb, following the dessert-themed monikers of the mobile OS. Prior versions of Android were codenamed Cupcake, Donut, Eclair and Froyo.

""It's likely that it will be more of an incremental upgrade, in the same manner as Android 2.2 (Froyo) was to Android 2.1 (Éclair) as Google seeks to perfect the new platform on tablets and high-end smartphones."
