Gingerbread - Android 2.3 RSS Feed

Maybe this one's Gingerbread?

We can't vouch for the validity of this about screen, but GizmoFusion swears it's Android 2.3 Gingerbread. And maybe it is. Or maybe it's someone with a text editor and about 45 seconds of free time. Could be either one. And regardless, we know darn well that Gingerbread is coming, thanks to the...

A second Google phone out before Christmas?

A report today suggests that a second Google phone is not only real, but is due out by the end of the year.

Look who dropped in for a visit at Google HQ -- it's the Gingerbread man, poised to join the rest of the tasty treats on the lawn at Google.  There's no word on any announcement or code dropping, but it can't be too much longer now that this big fella is on site.  Google's own unboxing video after...

Will Gingerbread be Android 2.3?

We've been talking about the next version of Android -- (still) unofficially dubbed Gingerbread -- as far back as a year ago -- months before Froyo was ever announced.

What the hell is this running on an HTC Touch Dual?

Whilst wandering through some comments on Gizmodo, we came a link to purported Gingerbread video from Mother Russia.  I don't speak Russian, and I don't read Cyrillic, so we found someone who does. His rough translation is after the break.I do know that hackers have had Android running on the HTC...

Remember that really blurry picture that reportedly shows Gingerbread? It hasn't gotten any clearer, but now it's moving.

Ice Cream to follow Honeycomb in the Android dessert lineup, Forbes says

Beginning at "C," we'...

Wednesday night build.prop wackiness shows Motorola Olympus, Android 3.0

We love these Android "about" screens. And the reason we love them is that you can make your own with a couple of lines in the command prompt and about 30 seconds with a text editor. So when we say take what you see above with a grain of salt, we mean a mountain-sized piece of the ol' sodium...

After 'Gingerbread,' next Android version to be called 'Honeycomb?'

 TechRadar has done some digging, and actually have "multiple sources" that confirm that the version of Android following Android 3.0 ("Gingerbread") will be named "Honeycomb."

Tablet madness is upon us, and if you're like me you can't wait to see what Android looks and feels like on a proper tablet device.  The Asus Eee pad just may be one of those devices.  Originally planned to release with Windows 7 Embedded, Asus has decided to scrap that and run with Android instead...

Rumor: Gingerbread in 2010, 1GHz required, new UX

  Details on Gingerbread, the next big release of Android, have been few and far between. We are expecting a user interface overhaul, but beyond that things have been a little murky.

We're going to get the skinny on the Froyo version of Android here in a few short hours. But news about Gingerbread (actual version number is yet unknown) is already trickling out.
