Ice Cream sandwich is the next version of Android which is to be released Q4. This will be the version that combines Honeycomb (Version 3, for tablets) and Gingerbread (Version 2.3, for phones) into one single version of Android for all devices.
The imminent upgrade you talk about will be take Honeycomb from version 3 to version 3.1 and will still be Honeycomb. This is already rolling out to the Motorola Xoom.]]>
