Developers are all excited for the coming of Android 4.0, Google’s newest OS that is named after a cold treat.

The buzz circulating among Google I/O attendees is about the latest mobile operating system Android is planning to release. And this OS was already given a name that will make anyone scream…for ‘Ice Cream.’

The ‘Ice Cream’ OS is said to be a combination of the features of ‘Honeycomb’ and ‘Gingerbread’ platforms. During the Mobile World Congress back in February, Google already dropped the names ‘Ice Cream’ and ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ for its fresh OS offerings.

Google’s then-CEO Eric Schmidt added this statement: “The two of them—notice that one starts with a ‘G’ and the next one starts with an ‘H.’ You can imagine the follow-on will start with an ‘I’ and it will be named after a dessert and it will combine capabilities of both the G[ingerbread] and the H[oneycomb] release.”
