Rumor: Gingerbread SDK Arrives Next Week

A source close to Android Police is claiming that the next release of Android is slated to arrive next week. Codenamed Gingerbread, we don’t know whether this is 2.3, 2.5, or 3.0 in terms of naming convention.   However, that could change soon enough!

We know that Google has turned their focus on aesthetics but beyond that, we’re anxious to see what they have up their sleeves. It’s been widely expected that Gingerbread would be arriving in or around October so this would put it smack-dab in the middle. Going forward, we have Honeycomb, rumored for the first quarter of 2011 and then slowing to roughly once a year.

          I would love to get a N1 but in all honesty I love my EVO way to much . I mean yea it would be fabuloso to have the updates right out of the Google gate but TMo and ATT suck. Why is it that Google dropped the ball on the Verizon version ? Sprint / Verizon are the only carriers that actually let you start the call , talk during it , and then end it all without a single drop out here in Phoenix.
