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.
The Gingerbread Man has already been spotted on the campus of Google and has taken his place among the other delectable treats adorning the Android lawn. This unofficial unwrapping suggests the launch of this latest version of Android is imminent.
Adding fuel to the fire of this rumor is the latest version of Google Maps which recently hit the Android Market with some UI enhancements that reportedly foretell the look and feel of this upcoming Android revision. If that was not enough proof that Gingerbread is coming soon, devices running Gingerbread have been spotted on the intertubes pinging different websites.
As always, take this rumor with a grain of salt as it comes with no supporting documentation to substantiate these claims. It is based upon the word of a trusted source and some common sense that suggests all the stars are lining up for a big announcement. We are going to lay on the line and suggest that you break out the eggnog as there may be a tasty treat perfect for dunking coming next week. Anyone excited?
