The next version of Android is going to be launched soon, though no exact dates are known yet. Usually, unlike Apple, Google doesn’t like to keep information in secret, so in this aspect Apple and Google are very different — Google is open for everyone, while Apple carefully chooses with whom to work. Now when the Ice Cream Sandwich launch date (whenever it is) is becoming closer, Google has published a tutorial for developers on how to port their Honeycomb apps to Ice Cream Sandwich and vice versa.
Ice Cream Sandwich will merge Gingerbread and Honeycomb, which means the apps developed only for smartphones or only for tablets must be reprogrammed to run on both. This means Google wants developers to update their apps developed for Honeycomb tablets to be compatible with Ice Cream Sandwich devices.
As Google said the software developers kit for Ice Cream Sandwich is coming soon, and it will offer a full set of tools for Android 3.2, so there is much work to do.
