In an interview with Phone Scoop, Google Android Engineering Director Dave Burke outlined a few things to expect from the new "I" version of Android that will come after Honeycomb. Besides merging phone and tablet versions, as announced yesterday, the new version will likely bring the "action bar" at the top of the screen on tablets, to phones as well. The action bar provides contextual, app-specific buttons to act on whatever is on the screen at the moment, replacing the "press and hold" gesture, which will be phased out except for drag-and-drop operations. The "system bar" - at the bottom of the screen on tablets - may not come to phones, however. The new "Hologram" visual style of Honeycomb will come to phones, as will the new multi-tasking app switcher that shows a small view of each app running.
