    A trusted source has tipped us to the potential launch date for Gingerbread, the 2.3 version of Android. According to our source, the SDK for this upcoming revision will debut on November 11th. The timing is àpropos as Samsung is slated to have a big event in New York City next week on the 8th and the confirmation of a Gingerbread-powered Nexus Two is a possible topic for this event.

    Rumor: Gingerbread to finish cooking and debut November 11th

    Only thing I'll say is Samsung put the squash on the rumor that they were releasing a "Nexus 2" device.

    I think it's called the Continuum....

    I know its basically semantics but is it going to be 2.3 or 3.0?

    I'll believe this rumor when I see it come true with my own eyes.

    Those of us who have the D2 are running 2.3, and I can tell you it's not Gingerbread.

    Did something in this thread lead you to believe that D1 isn't getting an update? Of course it will be updated.

    Actually there has been speculation back and forth as to whether the d1 will get an official update due to possible hardware limitations but its all up in the air.

    And the discussions that come from that speculation indicate that D1 will receive the update for Gingerbread. I've heard this also from good sources.
