"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."
