    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.

    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'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.

    Can't change the title after it's been on there for 30 minutes.

    Im certain that the droid will get some form of gingerbread. Without some of the functions though. Due to limited hardware specs.
    I would also like to know who is calling 2.3 gingerbread. From what I heard it would be either 2.5 or 3.0.

    Most recent I have heard 2.3 and 3.0 will be reserved for H/C although who really knows - as far as the thread title, at least it say's "Rumor" - those things are never true anyways :D
