Rumor: Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) Coming this October

Judging by these latest Gingerbread rumors, this fall may be exciting times for Android fans:


  • Android 3.0 Gingerbread Q4: The new OS will be released in mid- October (around 15 -16th), 2010. First handsets shipping in November/December for the Holiday Season.
  • Minimum Hardware Requirements for Android 3.0 devices: 1GHZ CPU, 512MB of RAM, displays from 3.5" and higher. Rumors have also being going around that Android handsets with 2GHz CPU's are coming.
  • New 1280×760 Resolution: Available for the devices with displays of 4" and higher.
  • Completely Revamped User Interface: The Android 3.0 Gingerbread UX will be similar to the Gallery App on the Nexus One. The same overall feel, light animated transitions,etc. Naively, through all the UI.
  • Two Official Flavors of Android: Android's split into 2 branches becomes official. 3.0 for top of the line/high end devices. Cheaper, low-end mass market handsets will keep Android 2.1/2.2


The last one is very interesting as Android 2.2 (Froyo) has only just been released by Google, but most manufacturers and operators are yet to push it through themselves. It's believed HTC for example won't update their phone line until October.
