    Android 2.4 reportedly coming in April, headed to ViewSonic ViewPad 4?


    Last we heard at CES, Viewsonic's ViewPad 4 handset was on track to launch with Android 2.2 in mid-June, but it now looks like there might be a pretty significant change of plans. Pocket-lint is reporting that it's heard from a source at Viewsonic who says the ViewPad 4 is now set to launch in April... with Android 2.4. According to the source, however, that update will not be dubbed "Ice Cream" as some had suspected, but will instead simply still be called Gingerbread. So what does the update bring if not a name change? Compatibility with dual-core apps designed for Honeycomb, primarily, which Pocket-lint speculates is one of the main reasons we've yet to see many Android 2.3-based devices hit the market (Nexus S, aside).

    I read an article earlier today about this... that 2.3 isn't being pushed because they opted for 2.4 to optimize usage with dual core devices and maintain compatibility with single core devices using apps written for dual core.

    either way... bring it on !

    I'm really hating that trend. And it's only getting worse.

    This is not a new trend. It's been going on for a long time. I first recall seeing it when Microsoft acknowledged an error in the firmware for the Xbox 360 HDDVD add on drive that caused dynamics to be compressed on Dolby Digital soundtracks. The uproar that followed, up until MS released updated firmware, was akin to a room full of kindergarten kids all screaming at the top of their little lungs that they wanted ice cream...in the fashion of a tantrum! Very telling, and a very sad commentary on the nature of the internet community as a whole, IMHO.
