Google "Google may be planning to keep Android 2 and 3 segregated in a long-term split of the platform, according to a ViewSonic source on Monday. The 2.4 update, once thought to be called Ice Cream, is now said to be a continuation of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) that would simply add backwards compatibility for dual-core apps on single-core phones. Ice Cream, Pocket-lint heard, should be Android 3.1 and would keep the two apart in features and the interface."

Nexus One users STILL waiting for 2.3...

Personally, I'm more than disappointed in Google. It's going on two months since 'Gingerbread' has been released and I'm still waiting for the 2.3 update on my Nexus One. I could understand the wait if I owned a carrier branded phone, but Google's own N1? It's ridiculous, really that I haven't received my OTA update yet. My feeling is that Google got roped into some sort of exclusivity agreement with one or more carriers and is purposely withholding the 2.3 update from its own loyal customers who went out on a limb and purchased one of their phones. I hope Nexus S users are paying attention. The minute its successor arrives, I suspect they too will find themselves abandoned. I guess I'll wait patiently for CyanogenMod to beat Google to the punch.
