    Android 2.3 Gingerbread could launch any day now

    November 12th, 2010



    While you probably already know that the next major version of the Android operating system, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, could launch at any moment now, Google Mobile just solidified this fact. According to a recent tweet, @GoogleMobile had this to say, ďOur cafes are baking something sweet.Ē The picture above was attached to this tweet.

    So while this could just be a tease of sorts, when Google themselves tweet something like this, itís likely not meaning that something will be on its way within weeks, but will likely be on the
    scale of days. Could the Gingerbread update be announced within the next couple of days? We sure as hell hope so, as weíre getting a little impatient to see what itís packing. And, we havenít even gotten into the fact that it will likely remain only on the Nexus One and Nexus S (if launched) for some time before any other handset sees the update.

    Google
    needs to deliver the goods with Gingerbread to be come the iOS alternative. While it already is at this point, providing a nicer user experience will go quite nicely to the stack of features the OS comes with. While WebOS and Windows Phone 7 are very nice operating systems that rival even iOS in the aesthetics department, they lack the features to take the lead. If Gingerbread provides a revamped UI that makes Android looks somewhat sexy, or at least just easier on the eyes, itíll do nothing but help the OS skyrocket to the top. More so than it already is.

    Gingerbread is said to make custom UIís on
    Android phones irrelevant, and this is a very smart move for Google to make. While some manufacturers will continue to make their custom skins on their Android phones, Gingerbread may have just the right look for some to scrap a new UI all together. Choosing stock Android for a device theoretically will ensure that the device will be updated faster than other, skinned Android phones.

    Who knows, but hopefully Google will surprise some lucky Nexus One owners with a treat this weekend.

    Mmmm ginger bread. I want it. lol
    Jim your right about the time it takes the rest of us to receive the updates. I remember when 2.1 came out for the the droid, by then they were already talking about 2.2 coming out in a few weeks. The nexus always gets the updates first.

    If it's like my wifes X the 2.3. blah blah blah isn't the OS version. It's some other build number I can't recall as I rarely get to touch it anyways.

    I thought that 3.0 was supposed to be Gingerbread?
    Is this just another update like 2.0 and 2.1 were both eclair?

    I don't know how many times I have posted that 2.3 is already out on the D2. And I think the X has it now as well.

    That's the Moto version. The build version is still 2.2.1. If it's not, please post a screenshot so we know to apologize.
