    This may be old news but I thought I'd throw it out there anyways. From what I've read the Android 3.0 honeycomb SDK is supposedly to be released next week. I'm not really a developer of Android applications as of right now but it still seemed note worthy.

    This is awesome news and it looks like it's going to really bring some nice features. On the down side it's bad for all the users of older phones like the Droid 1 as they won't be able to take advantage of it, unless Google releases another 2.x branch with a few of the 3.x features. I love Android and the progress it's making, but at the same time it's moving a little to quickly. I mean my Droid 1 is already pretty much obsolete and it hasn't been out for 1 full year yet.

    I've be willing to bet rooted users will have 3.0 on the d1.

    The phone companies plan on obsolesence within 9 months on any device. It keeps them selling the masses more phones. BASTARDS!!! :):):)

    How's this? When the AOSP drops rooted D1 users will have a custom ROM built on Gingerbread up and running, well I might add, before any Gingerbread devices OR Gingerbread updates are released.

    Hmm but if motorola are not working on it for droid 1 it will most likely be broken in many areas like 2.1 of old that had so many bugs until motorola started pushing out leaks.

    Hope im wrong as devs now have been at it longer and hopefully can get it going. My phone at 1ghz with lfy 1.71 b!tch slaps the new phones on display :p

    Agreed. Was about to state the same.

    You may have already heard about Android version 3, code named Android 3.0 Gingerbread (the version and code name is still subject to change). The new OS is supposed to be released by the end of 2010, but the Software Development Kit for developers will come out as soon as next week.

    Well it's good news for every Android fans. dancedroiddancedroiddancedroid

    My thoughts exactly. And bL33d brings up an excellent point, the D1 will never EVER intentionally get 3.0 and when it's ported it's going to be buggy, and a port is the only option...but we do have one trick up our sleeve, because the D2 likely will get 3.0 at some point and that port would be a near identical match (if I understand correctly that the devices are nearly identical, right?). So their should be far less bugs as the early ports of 2.1 and so on from dissimilar devices. Hopefully anyway.

    From what I understand 3.0 has a hardware requirement of at least a 1ghz processor or faster. So you most likely will be getting the update first as with android 2.2.

    Yah that sounds about right. The Droid 2 is just a Droid 1 with a better processor and keybaord. Not much else that I know of except that the Droid 1 is absent of motoblur that is on the Droid 2, correct me if I am wrong.

    The minimum requirements that were reported for Gingerbread were only a rumor. A Russian podcaster randomly reported them and it spread like wildfire. Google employees responded that they weren't true, and the Russian guy (Eldar Murtazin) clarified and said that they were not the minimum requirements, but just what HE recommended for Gingerbread.

    Here's one article about it, there are dozens of others talking about how this was a fake rumor.
