Schmidt: “Ice Cream Sandwich” Will Unite Gingerbread and Honeycomb
Yes, no, yes, no. That’s what it has been like the last month trying to figure out if Honeycomb will appear on smartphones or not. But during the Q&A after his keynote at MWC, Google’s Eric Schmidt mentioned something very cool:
We have an OS called Gingerbread for phones, we have an OS being previewed now for tablets called Honeycomb. The two of them. You can imagine the follow up will start with an I, be named after dessert, and will combine these two.
That seems pretty clear: Honeycomb will remain a tablet OS, concurrent with Gingerbread as a phone OS, and a future version, presumably Ice Cream Sandwich, will bring them back together again. It’s not an official announcement, but it’s the clearest thing we’ve heard so far on the question.
