Android Ice Cream Sandwich is for phones and tablets

Eric Schmidt:

Today I’ll use the commonly used names. We have OS called gingerbread for phones, we have an OS being previewed now for tablets called Honeycomb. The two of them… you can imagine the follow up will start with an I, be named after dessert, and will combine these two.

Nailed it:

It’s a good bet the next version after those two is called “sandwich” for a good reason. I bet it’s because the goal of ice cream sandwich is to unify the base again, so phones and tablets run the same system.
