Next Android Will Combine Best Of Honeycomb And Gingerbread

Honeycomb's not even out of the oven yet, but Google honcho Erik Schmidt is already dropping hints about the Android version that comes after the tablet-friendly OS (Ice Cream? Icing? Does icing by itself constitute a dessert?).

Here's what we can expect: a platform that's optimised for both smartphones and tablets, instead of the current bifurcated system. Oh, and a six month product cycle - which doesn't help us much, since we still don't know when Honeycomb will launch. But once it does, mark your calendars. [Engadget]
