Name of Next Android Release to be “Gingerbread”

In a post on, Brian Swetland reveals the name of Android’s next release.

“We maintain a set of patches on top of Linux, which we periodically rebase to the latest released Linux kernel. We’ve been doing this roughly every other kernel release since about 2.6.14. This week we’re finalizing our move to 2.6.32 for the Android ‘Froyo’ release, and we’ll likely be on .33 or .34 for ‘Gingerbread.'”

So what do you think “H” will be? Hamburger probably won’t work, as it doesn’t fall under the “sweets” category. Maybe they’ll use Hersheys, Hot Fudge, or possibly Hollow Chocolate Bunnies.

Yummm…. Bunnies.

Sony Ericsson Steps up Camera Game with new Xperia Arc

If you tuned into last night’s episode of the Monday Night podcast, you’d know that one of the topics we touched on was digital cameras in smart phones. While the average consumer thinks that more megapixels means better pictures,this couldn’t be more wrong. In fact, all it essentially means is a larger final image. There are other features that factor into how nice those pictures from your birthday party end up looking. Factors that include speed, sensors, and light sensitivity among others. Sony Ericsson understands this and has taken dramatic steps in improving the camera in their upcoming Xperia Arc.
