So we told you the other day that there was a pretty big rumor floating around that Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) was dropping yesterday. Well, yesterday came and went, and there’s not a crumb of Gingerbread to be found. Don’t get your hopes up just yet folks, because a tweet was sent out by the official @GoogleMobile account that stated: “Our cafes are baking something sweet”, and included the above photo.
The current rumor is that Gingerbread is landing on November 15th instead, so take it for what it’s worth.
The other day, we brought you a rumor that the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) SDK was going to be dropping on November 11. Well, now it seems that someone on the leadership team of the Open Handset Alliance (one of the governing bodies that backs Android) has tweeted the following:
Prepare your Nexus One (Developer version) for Android OTA update 2.3 (Gingerbread) in the next few days:-D
Obviously Android users are anxious for Android 2.3, but Google TV users may also be wondering when they may see some Gingerbread love on their GTV devices. Seeing as there’s no word as to when we may be getting 2.2 (Froyo), or whether or not they’ll make the jump straight to 2.3, we may be waiting for a while. Stay tuned.
Rumor has it that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread SDK is going to go public November 11th! The Gingerbread Man, pictured above, has already been spotted on the Googleplex lawn. This unofficial unwrapping suggests the launch of this latest version of Android is inevitable.
More details supporting this rumor are the release of a Google Maps update which showed a slightly enhanced UI, possibly to allude to the look and feel of the upcoming Gingerbread OS.
Remember, folks, this is just a rumor and should be treated as such. There have been no official announcements from carriers, manufacturers, or Google. But, November 11th is only a few days away so we’ll just have to wait and see if the Gingerbread Man will in fact be released.
