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.
It seems like only yesterday that Google TV was officially announced back in May at I/O, and that a new chapter in the saga that is television was upon us. Well, here we are three months later, and that mystical, dreamy-eyed view once held by many has been replaced with a skepticism that is being felt not only by consumers, but by those in the media and entertainment industry as well.
On paper, Google TV is a great idea. The ability to be able to search for what you want to watch across content stored on your network connected devices, as well as the seemingly infinite library available online, should be enticing to just about everyone.

Obviously, there are more than five factors that need to be considered, but these are among the most pressing issues being discussed as of late. So, without further ado, continue reading below for five things Google TV needs in order to be successful:
