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.
