The fragmentation of Android has always been a problem. And Google has contributed further to this by releasing a separate version (3.0 Honeycomb) of the operating system for tablets. This version is very different from the 2.x versions that are currently used on mobile phones.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced at the company’s press conference at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona, that the next major version of Android will combine the best of Gingerbread (2.3) and Honeycomb (3.0), and merge it into one system. He also mentions that the code name of this version will begin with the letter “I”. As in Ice Cream?

Schmidt also points out that they have released new versions about every six months, and that they intend to continue with that cycle. That would give us Ice Cream some time this summer?
