Ice Cream Sandwich is coming, and with it, handsets will be able to install apps built on Honeycomb.

Main did not that although Google haven't released the software development kit for the new Android OS, developers can take steps now to help make sure that their Honeycomb apps work on smaller screens. Ice Cream Sandwich is something to get excited about, as it will be a singular OS for both smartphones, tablets, and "everything in-between" with Main being quoted:

Although Honeycomb remains tablets-only, the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) release will support big screens, small screens, and everything in between. This is the way Android will stay from now on: the same version runs on all screen sizes.
