Ice Cream will be the version of Android following Honeycomb, Forbes reported today. We haven't even gotten to Gingerbread yet, but that doesn't mean we can't look to the future.
Google has taken to naming different iterations of Android after desserts, in alphabetical order. Beginning at "C," we've had Cupcake, Donut, Eclair and Froyo. Gingerbread and Honeycomb have been confirmed to be next and are expected to be announced later this year and early next year, respectively. Google has not said anything about what delicious desserts will follow Honeycomb, but that doesn't prevent hardware partners from doing so.
Tudor Brown, the President of ARM, mentioned the codename to Elizabeth Woyke of Forbes. ARM, which manufacturers processors, integrates with a wide variety of electronic devices, many of which run Android; in other words, he would be in the know about future Android versions.
All that said, we haven't really had an official official announcement from Google about anything past Froyo, so we'll just have to see. [Forbes] Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
