Well it’s that time again, as it’s been more and more often over at the Google Pod, for them to honor another event in their loving “Doodle” way. This time it’s in honor of the 119th anniversary of the first documented ice cream sundae. That’s all well and good – but isn’t that sort of an odd number of years to celebrate? We think so, and Android Community thinks so – so what’s the REAL deal? We’re banking on the next version of Android being called Ice Cream Sundae.
The pattern goes like this: 1.5 Cupcake, 1.6 Donut, 2.1 Eclair, 2.2 Froyo, 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb, and what’s next? The letter “I” is next. It’s almost certainly Ice Cream, but because they’ve already gone with Froyo for one of their earlier iterations, they’ve got the differentiate the image. How about adding a few more scoops and some toppings? Sounds tasty!
This is one of those rumors that really doesn’t affect the world one way or another, but is certainly a fun little tidbit to think about. Ice Cream or Ice Cream Sundae or Ice Cream Sandwich or whatever you call it is certainly a few months away, at least, since Gingerbread isn’t even on more than a couple devices out in the wild right this moment (legally, that is.) Therefor, who knows? Let’s celebrate the moment with whichever tasty treat we choose!
