No specific mentions of what the new and improved upgrade will entail were given, but both the programming interface and the user interface are to get make-overs.

The upgrade news pushes back the deadline for the Android Developers Challenge until 14 April, Google said.

"We're looking forward to seeing some great apps, especially after we've had a chance to incorporate some [developer] feedback into the Android platform," Nguyen wrote.
