Remember those supposed Android 3.0 details that dropped earlier this week, courtesy of oft-accurate Russian Blogger Eldar Murtazin's Digestiv podcast, as translated by Unwired View's Staska? Well, a few things have happened since then. Start with Android's Dan Morrill taking a swipe at UV's original piece, saying on Twitter "I love it when people just make stuff up and report it as news." He later couched things a tad more, saying "In summary, please remember that rumors are not official announcements. ;)."
Now we have Unwired View saying that it erred some in its translation of the Russian podcast, on top of Murtazin clarifying some of what he'd said, including that the supposed "minimum specs" for the next version of Android are actually recommended specs.
We'll just say this about all that: Rumors are fun, and are a part of the game. But as Morrill reminds everybody, rumors aren't fact. Just because somebody heard something from somebody else doesn't make it true. But good on people for trying to make it right after the fact, we guess.
Yes, Google's working on the next version of Android. And it likely will leave behind some of the lower-end hardware out there. And it likely will have a better UI. And it'll be a big deal, and we'll all cover it. In the meantime, a little patience wouldn't kill anybody.
