We know it’s coming, we know it’s coming soon, but as far as how soon – we just don’t know. However, that may all change here soon. Word is that we may be seeing an official Google announcement of Android 2.3 Gingerbread on December 6th.
According to IntoMobile, Andy Rubin is scheduled to make an appearance at the D: Dive Into Mobile Conference on the 6th of December. For those of you who don’t recall it was Rubin who said we will be getting Gingerbread details in the coming weeks, so who better to reveal it to us than someone this close to the matter.
We still do not know exactly what Android 2.3 will feature. We know that it will bring some major UI revisions such as a black notifications bar with green highlights, but beyond that we are left in the dark.
Stay tuned as we near the approach of Android 2.3 and get more details on the much anticipated update!
Hmm, I’m not sure about this comment “it will bring some major UI revisions such as a black notifications bar with green highlights”
Can a notification bar color change and bits of green highlight really be classes as major UI revisions 🙂
According to Wikipedia Dec. 6th is “Saint Nicholas Day, where St. Nicholas/Santa Claus leaves little presents in children’s shoes. (International)”.
And Gingerbread fits perfectly, doesn’t it?
Eric Schmidt said we’re getting Gingerbread in the next few weeks, no?
Gingerbread… already… and all I want is Froyo already… I think I should just give up that we’re ever going to see it…

Relally getting tired of hearing about gingerbread. _
You should have bought a nexus one..
HTC´s phones will be updated to Android 2.3
Just got the 2.3 (Gingerbread) update (via manual settings, I didn’t get an update notification) on my Desire, a few nice UI tweak, but I’ve also downloaded updates so hard to see what changes relate to Gingerbread. Texting is easier, more predictive and I’ll get back to you on the rest when I’ve finished playing 😉 but it’s available!
Will the HTC G2 by T-Mobile get it?
It’s Dec. 1st…waiting for Dec. 6th announcement and hopefully release of Gingerbread Android 2.3 . I have the HTC EVO and am wondering if they will release the ipdate (Sprint) at the same time the Nexus get the OTA update? Or will we have to wait months till we see the new update?
WTF Gingerbread SO early ??? THANKs Google. haha. (BTW: I’ll buy Sony Ericsson PSP Phone or Xperia x12 or… I Don’t know. …Just SE with 2.3 Gingerbread.) …Probably PSPhone or X12 release in April… Not before. …But I hope NOT AFTER April. 😀
I believe 2.3 will not be a big UI change. Just small tweaks, better performance, a little more polished. I believe Honeycomb aka 3.0 will be the big UI change for next year
Just upgraded to 2.3, nothing noticeable.
