Another feature that is expected to make the migration from Honeycomb to Ice Cream is the “holographic” UI and the app switcher feature that shows all running apps as small 3D screenshots lined up in a row.
Ice Cream may do away with the “system bar” at the bottom of the screen in Honeycomb, but it seems that decision has not yet been made.
It seems that Google is using MWC as an opportunity to reveal much about Android Ice Cream, as yesterday Eric Schmid announced that Android Ice Cream would bring Android Honeycomb and Gingerbread together into one OS again, which I was very glad to hear. Hopefully we won't have to wonder so much about the numbering system for Android releases in the future.
