Rumor: Gingerbread to finish cooking and come out of the Android oven November 11th

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?

    I don’t understand. Your source told you Samsung and Google will launch the Nexus Two on the 8th, but not talk about Gingerbread (the OS it will launch with) until the 11th? And you believed them?

    Aweesome…. Ive got a phone less than 2 months old (Galaxy S) that still hasnt gotten Froyo ….. and a new updated comes out that I probably wont get till next march….. Cuz thats whats really important here…. WANTING the update… not actually getting it. You know…. as they say…. “its the thought that counts”. Ya well…. hey Google… THINK THIS! Windows Phone 7 …..

      Lmao..Windows phone 7=Epic fail. Man up and root your Galaxy and put Froyo on it. OR go buy an iphone.

      So now Google is responsible for you purchasing from a company with the worst track-record for supporting their products?
