Google Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich is the software version intended on revolutionising Google’s mobile Operating System (OS), bridging the gap between tablets and smartphones to create software harmony. But in a low blow, there’s been word that the OS’ “game changing stuff” won’t be found on the October/November variant, with its successor Jelly Bean nabbing some of the treats.

However, thisismynext.com is claiming some of the game changing features will be absent from Ice Cream Sandwich, and will be found in the version thereafter: Jelly Bean.
Many people are saying the ‘Jelly Bean’ name fits Google’s bill, running through confectionary alphabetically to name its software versions. But, the whole concept of Ice Cream Sandwich is that it fuses one treat (ice-cream) with another (dough) to create a hybrid treat, with the two improving one another. The name was specifically chosen because it correlates with smartphone and tablets OS being fused together. Jelly Bean seems to lack the in depth naming solution typical of Google.
At the moment, Google hasn’t commented on the Jelly Bean OS. Then again, they haven’t even confirmed the software version of Ice Cream Sandwich, so it’s really no surprise.
