Quote:
Open source software enthusiasts might see another version of Android as soon as this summer.

A new Android OS version, codenamed Ice Cream, is scheduled for a release some time in June or July says Pocket-lint, citing “multiple sources familiar with the matter.†Pocket-lint’s sources say Google will announce Ice Cream at its I/O developer conference this May in San Francisco.
...and I thought they were going to yearly release cycles...
Once again...

Interesting. As long as they keep bringing new stuff to the table I don't mind. I backup and flash alot of roms as it is. I have the process down to where I am up and running pretty quick.

By shortening their release cycle, this would have a similar effect to the nexus 1.
It'll shake up the industry by increasing market demand for the latest OS.

1. Phone makers won't be as complacent to not update their phones.
2. Service providers won't have as much time to dick around and lock you out of stuff.

And the public then realizes how crappy it is to have everything locked out to us.

I thought they were doing that too. Maybe it's a 6 month release cycle, with phones getting every other android release and the same with tablets. Tablets: Honeycomb, Juice (?); while phones are getting gingerbread, ice cream sandwich, knicknacks.

But won't the Motorola Atrix come with Android 3.0 and is being released next month? *Confused*.

No, the Atrix will come with 2.3. Android 3.0 is tablets only.

I don't see the logic in doing this. Why are people going to buy a phone when 3-4 months after the new OS extends beyond the flagship model there is a new OS version. To those that want a top of the range phone and don't visit XDA and the iPhone users sitting on the fence this puts them off big time. Desire HD hasn't even got Gingerbread (officially) and Ice Cream could be out in 5-6months. With contract durations getting longer and longer its madness.

MOST phones do not have Gingerbread yet. Google's fault, really. Even the N1 doesn't have an OTA version.
