Android 3.0 Gingerbread

Android 2.2, better known as FroYo, which still remains elusive to many devices, already has a successor! There is a strong rumor of Android 3.0 aka Gingerbread being prepared for a Q4 release later this year.

This time around one of the major focus will be on the User Interface, which will make all other custom UI’s obsolete, this could also mean that the custom UI will become just an add-on to the Android thus making the update to new OS as soon as it gets released, boy it feels good even writing this one :). It will require some pretty beefed up hardware requirements (or recommendations) though, including a 1GHz processor at the very least (qualifying devices such as the EVO 4G, all Galaxy S Variants as well as the Desire among others), 512MB RAM, a 3.5″ display or higher with support for 1,280 × 760 resolution.

What is clear though would be the branching off where hardware is concerned, since lower end handsets will max out at Android 2.2 at best, while newer high end Android phones should ship with Gingerbread.  Wow, im all in for a Desire now, someone just launch it in India. 😛
