Today’s episode of Sesame Street, I mean Thedroidguy.com is brought to you by the letter “I” and I is for Ice Cream. In an interview with Forbes Magazine, President of ARM, Tudor Brown, revealed that the next sweet treat name for the flavor of Android after Honeycomb is in fact “Ice Cream”. There weren’t many other choices for the letter “I” perhaps Italian Ice or something of that flavor.
Google provided a standard no comment by stating: “The next platform release names are Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Additional timing and details have not been released yet.” however Tudor Brown is definitely high up on the Android hiarchy and pretty reliable in these matters.
The Forbes magazine article, further concurs that Tudor Brown is a credible source. They also cite that this is not the first time an Android OEM partner revealed the name of a release before Google did. Samsung revealed the name “Honeycomb” in a Q & A session at IFA in Berlin Gemany in September of 2010; when The Droid Guy asked WP Wong and JK Shin of Samsung Telecommunications about the Galaxy Tab’s upgradeability. Although that was the first time Honeycomb was used by a partner, Aaron Kasten, of Androidswag.com tipped the Android Family off to the name Honeycomb back on August 4.
