Android 2.4 Ice Cream Pops Up On ITProPortal

While digging in our Google Analytics, we were surprised to spot quite a few visits from devices that ran on the next iteration of Google Android version 2.4, otherwise known as Ice Cream, since the beginning of December 2010.

With Honeycomb (Android 3.0) already available on the Motorola Xoom tablet, and Gingerbread on the verge of becoming mainstream, one can expect Ice Cream to be shoe-horned into the smartphone market as Google tries to tidy up its offering (Honeycomb for tablets, Gingerbread/Ice Cream for smartphones).

Expect Ice Cream to be available at the end of the first half of 2011 when more powerful dual core smartphones appear on the market.

Like for most other products & services, Google very rarely commits to a date because of the nature of its business but given that Google I/O 2011 is set to take place on the 11th of May 2011 in San Francisco, one can expect an announcement there.
