The many versions of Android can be a bit confusing, Joan. I've just in a last couple months entered the whole Android scene....here's a quick little summary which might help clear things up for you. I'm far from an expert, but I'm learning, hopefully.

Technically, 2.2 is Froyo...(short for "frozen yogurt") and the 2.3 variants are Gingerbread.

2.3.5 is what came on my Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 (not a phone, but a wifi personal media player....basically a smartphone without the cellular radio inside of it), and I've since rooted it and flashed another version onto it, so it now has 2.3.6. (Rooting is kind of like running as administrator, or jailbreaking an Apple device.)

Google loves their desserts, as you may have noticed. The earliest one I have heard of was called Donut. Then you've now heard of Froyo and Gingerbread, and now, some tablets like my Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus have 3.0, 3.1, or 3.2 which is Honeycomb. This year many newer devices will be getting an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, which is 4.0.

Supposedly Gingerbread and previous versions were meant for phone-sized devices, and then Honeycomb was the tablet size Android, and now I think Ice Cream Sandwich is supposed to work on every size, assuming the internal hardware is powerful enough.

I had just really gotten used to my Galaxy Player and its Gingerbread when I bought my tablet with Honeycomb, and now I am learning how to use that.....some definite changes are there. With my luck, I'll just get it all figured out and my Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade will come though and I'll have to start over.....

Today I had a brief derp moment about DDR2 and DDR3...

And then decided against buying a new rig for the benefits of owning more gadgets and equipment... So I sold my soul to the devil and got myself a cheap Prestigio MultiPad (the PMP3084B) lol

I now own a tablet and use more of Google's services aside from YouTube. I already feel dirty, but it's fun xD

I haven't been to a Dairy Queen in years....there isn't one anywhere near here, I don't think....which is a bummer.
