Android 3.0 Shouldn’t Be Called Android At All

Share And Comment

This one I think should be very simple for Google to understand, Android 3.0 is designed to run on “devices with larger screens”, specifically tablets. Every Android device up until now was primarily designed for smartphones and adapted to tablets. Since Android 3.0 won’t be coming to smartphones, at least not as a full OS release, it shouldn’t be called Android at all. Google already has fragmentation problems with the existing Android releases, why muck up the water by calling this OS Android, which while obviously influenced by previous versions of Android is not really Android. All this serves to do is piss smartphone users off, because no matter if we get Android 2.3 or 2.4 or whatever we will always feel behind. Why didn’t Google just call it Chrome OS Mobile (Chrome OSM) or something?

What do you guys think, anybody got a better name?
