Google’s Android codenames so far are: 1.5 Cupcake, 1.6 Donut, 2.0/2.1 Eclair, 2.2 Froyo, 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (version number not confirmed). Of course there’s a pattern here but you already knew it. What dessert name starting with the next letter (J) in line could Google use?
According to recent reports, the next Android version to come after Ice Cream Sandwich will be called Jelly Bean, at least that’s what a trusted source tells ThisIsMyNext. Another one says that Jelly Bean is on the table but the official codename hasn’t been decided yet. What both sources seem to agree upon is that the next version of Android will bring “game-changing stuff” that had originally been scheduled for Ice Cream Sandwich.
Is Google pulling a Windows Phone, because of Windows Phone Mango and iOS 5? Windows Phone was rushed to the market without some key features in order to catch (a late) start. Is Google rushing Ice Cream Sandwich to the market to compete with Windows Phone Mango and Apple’s iOS 5? Why do you think “game-changing stuff” that had originally been scheduled for Ice Cream Sandwich has been pushed back to Jelly Bean?
