    Not sure if the OP was trying to be funny or not but here is the versions for Android

    Version history

    Main article: Android version history
    Android has seen a number of updates since its original release. These updates to the base operating system typically fix bugs and add new features. Generally, each new version of the Android operating system is developed under a code name based on a dessert item. Past updates included Cupcake and Donut. The code names are in alphabetical order (Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich).
    The most recently released versions of Android are:


    • 2.2 (Froyo), which introduced speed improvements with JIT optimization and the Chrome V8 JavaScript engine, and added Wi-Fi hotspot tethering and Adobe Flash support[44]

    • 2.3 (Gingerbread), which refined the user interface, improved the soft keyboard and copy/paste features, and added support for Near Field Communication[45]

    • 3.0/3.1 (Honeycomb), a tablet-oriented[46][47][48] release which supports larger screen devices and introduces many new user interface features, and supports multicore processors and hardware acceleration for graphics.[49] The Honeycomb SDK has been released and the first device featuring this version, the Motorola Xoom tablet, went on sale in February 2011.[50] Google has chosen to withhold the Honeycomb source code, which called into question the "open-ness" of this Android release.[51] Google's Andy Rubin stated that the latest Android source code would be released "when it is ready". The reason for the delay, according to Rubin in an official Android blog post, was because Honeycomb was rushed for production of the Motorola Xoom.[52] Google later confirmed that the Honeycomb source code would not be released until after it was merged with the Gingerbread release in Ice Cream Sandwich.[53] The 3.1 update has been announced at the 2011 Google I/O on 10 May 2011.[54]
    The upcoming version of Android is:

    • Ice Cream Sandwich,[55] a combination of Gingerbread and Honeycomb into a "cohesive whole."[56] It was announced on May 10, 2011 at Google I/O that it will be released in Q4 2011.[57]

    The version scheduled to follow honeycomb will be Ice-cream sandwich. It's supposed to be the merging of honeycomb and gingerbread. Thus ending the android divergence.

    Ice Cream sandwich sounds pretty unexciting. Well, so does gingerbread. Which might be why most devices don't have it.

    I wonder what "J" will be. "Jello", maybe?

    Unless you're rooted, all Thunderbolts right now are on 2.2 (Froyo), with 2.3 (Gingerbread) supposedly being pushed out in the near future. Whether we ever get 2.4 remains to be seen, but from what I've heard, it's very very unlikely, and if we do, it won't be for a long time.

    If you're just asking how to find it just for the heck of it, you can go into your settings, and one of the last options should be "About Phone", or something like that. One of the listings should be "operating system".

    Doubt it since Jello is a copyright name. Maybe Jawbreaker! heh
