    Android 3.0 is Honeycomb, Gingerbread 2.3?

    Looks like gingerbread is rumored not to be the overhauled UI. That makes more sense for us smartphone owners. Gingerbread actually being the successor of 2.2 and fixing a lot of pain points that just couldn't make it into the 2.2 build.

    Interesting. /Discuss

    dont delete.

    I heard that either 3.0 or 3.2 would be a tablet only version of Android and the other version would be the mobile equivalent.

    Maybe Gingerbread is going to mobile and Honeycomb is going to tablets or vice versa.

    So are you saying Gingerbread will be like android 2.3? ...and that we should be expecting a different name for 3.0 which is slated for an end of year release?

    I guess, I think there will be a <insert version number of your choosing> release but there will be a tablet version and a mobile version, each receiving their own names.

    Well they always do it in alphabetical order and the mobile version is supposed to be 3.4, so that would mean something starting with I or higher ( depending on how exactly the naming is done on the tablet 3.0+ versions. Will they have more than 1 name or not? )

    yes and no. He is saying 3.0 IS named "Honeycomb" and since G comes before H, then "Gingerbread" has to be an update BEFORE 3.0 ( hence his guess of 2.3 as a successor to Froyo's 2.2 )

    No one knows for sure. The alignment of numbers to Gingerbread and Honeycomb are not yet confirmed. It has been said far more times that Gingerbread will be 3.0 and Honeycomb will be 3.5 as opposed to the one statement from 'phonedog' about the OP's claim.

    ..which is why I posted asking that all future posts continue to be civil. Unfortunately, several posts in this thread were deleted due to their inflammatory nature.

    Me want Honeycomb!

    No but seriously, I don't get why they have to skip numbers, like from 1.6 to 2.0 and 2.2 or 2.3 to 3.0?
    I remember the dare releases were in order (V05, V06, V07)

    Anyway, I have a feeling honeycomb will be big, yeah yeah yeah...

    Sorry, I can't help it, best to get it all out now.

    Makes sense: first we had Cupcake (1.5), then Donut (1.6), then Eclair (2.0), Frozen Yogurt (2.2)...Honeycomb, and after that Ice Cream maybe?:p

    No one has said that Gingerbread won't be a UI overhaul. In fact, the article says:
    Google has said that Gingerbread will be a complete UI overhaul meant to remove the need for skins. Google never said that Gingerbread would be version number 3.0, though. That was just a rumor that the blogosphere came up with and that Google is now setting straight.
