Ice Cream Sandwich

  Covergirl 18 Dec 11

Well, what a stupid name for an os. Just read any news (or other) article about it and the number of mentions of "Ice cream sandwich" makes a mockery of the name.

I'll get me coat . . . :)

A link perhaps? If it concerns the mobile 'phone industry' then my interest dies forthwith.

Think its the people at google slyly mocking the tech writers who faithfully reel off froyo, gingerbread and of course ice cream sandwich in their copy. We the punters are supposed to remember which version of android they are.

Why stupid?

Inconvenient , perhaps, or cumbersome, but it's just a name, supposedly in alphabetical order, but I don't remember an H.

Google has always been a bit quirky.

It's certainly memorable!

Perhaps it is the only publishable comment that came out of a developers meeting.

you missed honeycomb then ? :-)


Is the naming with nonsensical names any different to other OS releases, Apple with lion, Ubuntu with natty narwhal, hardy heron etc ?

  morddwyd 18 Dec 11


No, just forgot it!

How about operating system version letters start with A add a few hundred versions down the road you will eventually get to I C S next add a bit of imagination to get you to a somewhat less boring "Ice Cream Sandwich"
