Android: Ice Cream 2.4 to land this summer at Google I/O?

According to a ‘source’ at Pock-Lint, Google will be releasing the next line in Google’s Android OS: Ice Cream. Ice Cream is the next ‘sweet’ named alphabetical version of Android starting with Donut (D), Eclair (E), Froyo (F), Gingerbread (G) and Honeycomb (H) with the next iteration in the list of releases Ice Cream (I). According to their source, the new version will be released at Google’s 2011 I/O conference this year. What makes us think this may not be true, is Honeycomb is supposed to be 3.0, but that may just be for tablets  (this time around) and Ice Cream 2.4 may be the remade honeycomb to be optimized for handsets. Guess we have to wait for May to find out.
