Google’s serving up Ice Cream Sandwich, promises to merge phone and tablet OS together


Here’s a shocker: Google has just announced at its I/O conference that the next version of Android, codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich will merge phone and tablet versions of the OS. The next version will retain a single look and feel for the UI across all devices and form factors, and will hopefully simplify the rollout of applications for developers. The move is looking to end fragmentation of Android devices and Google has pledged, along with its OEM and carrier partners that Android devices need to be capable of running the latest Android version up to 18 months after a device goes on sale.
