    If I'm not mistaken, the "official" name for ICS is "Android 4.0"...I think of it like Bulldozer's official name is "AMD FX".

    But yes, the name Ice Cream Sandwich is stupid.

    If you can think of another dessert that starts with I, then submit it. Maybe it would be less annoying if you spelled it right? :roll:

    I can't stand the entire naming scheme. I understand the theme, but names like Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, and now Ice Cream Sandwich annoy the heck out of me.

    Oh sh!t, I added a 'H' to it. :roll: I can't change the thread title, either. qubit's OCD pegs at maximum

    Time to vote Yes my friend. ;)

    Clearly you are overlooking how awesomely awesome Ice Cream Sandwiches are. And delicious! In fact, I prefer an Ice Cream Sandwich over the classic ice cream + cone symbiosis.

    See? DELICISOME! AWESILICIOUS!

    So Ice Cream Sandwich will kick unfathomable amounts of ass just because of the name.

    LOL I did not even notice that. Here's a good one for you




    Their calling it Eye Scream Sandwitch it is not exceptable to announce it as a diner desert, I do not like the affect it has on it's youser, neither do I uprecieight (okay I just made that one up) the tastiness. I LITERALLY ate my phone, it is mared know, from my tooth marks.

    It's just a code name pal, it's for developers end users will know it as " Android 4.0" and "Android 4.01" and so on.



    I mean you don't catch any of us calling windows by it's code names(longhorn is one that springs to mind), or hell the gamecube code name was " Dolphin" lol

    Yeah, ICS is kind of silly, but when you think about it, how many people are going to subconsciously want to choose android more because of the positive connotations that comfort/desert food have? I don't find it annoying; silly or pointless maybe, but I'm aware of the fact that I'm salivating after looking at the picture mrcl posted, so I guess the desert theme works from a marketing standpoint.

    Not to mention, I want one of those android shaped sandwiches now, MRCL you bastid!

    I bet the next release will be called Jelly Beans or Jelly Roll. Can't use Jell-o due to patents/copyrights. The one after that, maybe Key Lime Pie. LOL

    They like to sound like creamy goodness (Froyo, frozen yogurt)

    Thinner, crunchy and spicey (gingerbread)

    Now creamy, with crust (Ice cream sandwich)

    So yea, what's next? Forget the McRib! :laugh:

    The internal name for the O/S doesn't matter to me one bit. The fact people get wrapped up into this garbage makes me laugh, roll my eyes and facepalm at the same time. It's very disorienting.

    For me, it's just that it sounds so stupid and headlines everywhere keep quoting it, so it gets a bit annoying. But that's just me and I don't take myself too seriously. :laugh:

    I feel like this is grasping at straws. There's nothing wrong with the codename, I've seen worse. Besides, what difference does it make to the end user? None.

    Of course, all it does to is is make me love the OS for no other reason than I love ice cream sandwiches... It also make me crave desert
