Andy Rubin

All Things D's Kara Swisher today announced that Andy Rubin -- the godfather of Android -- will be one of the participants Dec. 6-7 at the "D: Dive Into Mobile" event in San Francisco. It's entirely possible that maybe he'll drop some Gingerbread news. Or it might come sooner. Or later. Nobody knows.

Also scheduled for the event are Sprint CEO Dan Hesse, RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis, Windows Phone VP Joe Belfiore, Palm's Jon Rubinstein, and many, many more. We're not expecting any of them to announce Gingerbread.

Just a reminder, folks, here's what we're expecting to go down at some point: Google will announce Gingerbread. Google will announce the Android 2.3 SDK. We might see the announcement of the Nexus S, with Gingerbread. And the Nexus One is likely to be among the first to get an upgrade. Some of those things may happen simultaneously. Or they might not. We'll just have to see. [All Things D]

Hey! A big group of people Steve jobs hates! This has got to end well.

Hey, every platform! Wait... nope that's every platform! At least the important ones.

I'm actually very interested in what Jon Rubinstein has to say about the future of palm. If palm gets it together and releases devices in forms that people actually want, they could really hurt sales of both Android and Windows Phone 7.

...and iOS. WebOS is a higher threat to iOS because of its more abstract interface.
