Android 2.4 To Combine Honeycomb and Gingerbread

You may remember a few weeks back, we posted information regarding Android Honeycomb not coming to mobiles. Whilst this has not changed, part of what was said has become more of a reality: However it was also said that in the future Google would like to unite the numbers system...'I think that coming together is a good idea. What we're trying to do here is make a base platform that's so good, that others only need to add native elements in their core areas.

Online rumors and speculation are strongly pointing to an update to the existing Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system to 2.4 which will be a blend of both Gingerbread and Honeycomb but will still be called Gingerbread. The new release is expected around April if speculation is correct with some devices scheduled to be released in the next couple of months already running the new version but no official announcements have been made. One of the core features this new version will add is the ability to run dual-core apps, whether this is the only upgrade or one of many remains to be seen.
