All Honeycomb Features Coming To Phones?



According to Google’s Open Source and Compatibility Tech Lead, Dan Morrill, all of the features of Android 3.0, Honeycomb, are headed to phones at some point.

There has been a lot of debate about Google continually saying that Honeycomb was only for tablets. What they never said was if they would take all of the features from Honeycomb and put them in the next full version release of Android for phones.  There was a lot of confusion in Barcelona over Android 2.4. Several times Thedroidguy was told directly by different vendor reps that Android 2.4 was the version coming out for their device.  Viewsonic and HTC had said they had devices releasing with 2.4 although HTC says they had a type-o later on.

Google’s Eric Schmidt said that the next version of Android would come out on a six month cycle and would combine the features from Gingerbread and Honeycomb. He also said it would start with an “I”.  We ran this story earlier this year about the next version of Android being called Ice Cream Sandwich and not Ice Cream.

As of this moment Google hasn’t demanded that Morrill pull the tweet down.
