Google Android “Honeycomb”

Google Android “Honeycomb”

January 26, 2011 in Articles, Mobile dev.

Google is to call the next version of its Android operating system “Honeycomb” . The name, which follows Google’s naming

convention of sweet products, will follow the upcoming Gingerbread 3.0 release and will most likely be 3.1 instead of a full jump to 4.0, according to TechRadar.

Honeycomb was one of the suggested names by Android fans, just as Gingerbread was before it, but some other suggestions that were made included Hot Fudge, Hot Chocolate, Honeysuckle, Huckleberry, Hazelnut, or just plain Honey, but the most popular name by far was Honeycomb, which fits in perfectly with the rest of the names.

With Gingerbread addressing pivotal issues for the Android OS such as the user interface, which may see the end of third-party UI overlays like HTC’s Sense or Motorola’s Blur, it seems likely that Honeycomb will focus on smaller issues, including anything that isn’t ready for the Gingerbread release later this year.
