Could Rubin Drop Gingerbread on December 6th?

Gingerbread? It's still baking.

With the rumored Gingerbread drop date come and gone without any tasty little pastry men coming to light, speculation has once again started as to exactly when Gingerbread will release.  With Eric Schmidt telling the world that it will be a “few weeks” during a recent interview, we have been looking for a date in which Google will announce the latest version of it’s Android operating system.

Looking at upcoming events, we happened to notice that Andy Rubin, creator of Android, is speaking at the D: Dive into Mobile conference on December 6th.  Rubin will be the opening interview. Could Rubin drop Gingerbread or news of the impending release during the interview?

Now there has been no rumblings or rumors, and we certainly are not trying to start one with this article, but the date of December 6th might fall into line with some sort of announcement or drop on Gingerbread.

Of course, it can be safely assumed that the announcement of Gingerbread will be coupled with the drop of the Nexus S device we saw Schmidt carrying during the Web 2.0 Summit.  So if there is going to be something at the D: Dive in to Mobile event, it would probably involve the new developer handset.

Got an opinion?  Let us hear it in the comments.
