Android 2.4 ?

There have been much of talks regarding Android 2.4 OS,
Android 2.4 is not Ice cream sandwich its still Gingerbread...

Well it seems to be true... Android has planned to release 2.4 OS with the same name of Gingerbread, because it is Gingerbread.. the only difference between both is that it can run the applications of Dual Core devices... in order to support the application compatibility with Honneycomb.
