Yesterday we told you about the HTC Flyer’s specs. But there were some fill-in-the-blanks there, and I’m here to clear them up. Amobil, the same site that broke the specs we covered last night, has gotten word from a source that the specs are real, and they were able to fill in those empty blanks.
Nexus One owners have been (im)patiently waiting for their beloved device to see Android 2.3 since early December. Announced with the Nexus S, Gingerbread was promised in the “coming weeks” for the previous pure Google device. After around a month and a half, those coming weeks have turned into “any day now”.
It looks like the Nexus S isn’t the only Gingerbread phone in town anymore. Supercurio, who was also the first to root the Nexus S, has ported the ROM from the new Google flagship device to the Galaxy S.

DigiTimes is reporting on Android tablets yet again. According to their sources, Google recently notified their partners that Android 3.0 will be completed and tablet samples will start arriving in December.
Phandroid posted this article last night, it’s quite lengthy but you’ll want to read all of it. They are giving early details of whats coming with Gingerbread, as well as an incredibly blurry snapshot of the home screen. Surely all these blurry photos of new software/hardware are done on purpose, the fact that a clear picture cannot be taken these days is slightly baffling.
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!
