Android "Ice Cream" bringing Honeycomb features to phones

updated 11:00 pm EST, Thu February 3, 2011

Feature set remains unclear

Shortly after Google held a special event focusing on the tablet optimizations in Android 3.0 'Honeycomb,' additional details surrounding a smartphone variant of the mobile OS have emerged. The latest information suggests the search giant has started creating a smartphone build, GRI17, that is referred to by the code-name 'Ice Cream,' sources have told Phandroid.

The latest details simply corroborate earlier reports surrounding the official name; the company has yet to disclose which Honeycomb features will find their way to the smartphone OS. Separate reports suggest Google's developers may take inspiration from Honeycomb's new notification system and visual themes.

The Ice Cream build is not expected to be unveiled until June or July.
