Android 4.0 to be called Ice Cream

According to Forbes Google’s Android 4.0 OS will be codenamed “Ice Cream”, following the alphabetical naming procedure used by the search giant, to follow Gingerbread (3.0) and Honeycomb (3.5).

ARM President Tudor Brown is the one who confirmed that Android 4.0 would be called Ice Cream, and there are little chances that he would be mistaken, especially since the company’s processors are being used in over 95 of all mobile phones out there.

All other details about Android 4.0 are being kept in a secret, however.

Ice Cream most likely won’t make its debut until mid-2011. Gingerbread is expected to be released before the end of the year and Honeycomb in early 2011.

Google has a history of naming its software revisions after desserts, so far we have had Cupcake (1.5), Donut (1.6), Eclair (2.0) and FroYo (2.2), the latest has been available since May and is due to make way for Gingerbread when the company decides to release it to the world.
