Honeycomb Could be Android 2.4; To be Launched at MWC 2011

Android HoneycombAndy Rubin unveiled a Motorola tablet powered by the next version of Android codenamed Honeycomb at the D: Dive into Mobile conference.

It has been called Android version 3.0 by the tech press, but now we have a new rumor which says that Honeycomb will actually be Android 2.4, not 3.0.

It has been assumed that Honeycomb will be Android 3.0 because it will support the tablet form factor and will come with a new user interface, but it seems that Google is planning to do something more special with version 3.0.

Android 2.4 Honeycomb (rumored) will probably be launched at MWC 2011 in Barcelona in February 2011 while Android 3.0 will be launched at the next Google I/O event in May 2011, like Froyo. Android 3.0 will probably be named Ice Cream, going by the current naming convention.
