With Android 2.2 expected to be launched today at Google IO 2010, what better time to be looking beyond that to Google’s subsequent refresh of the smartphone OS. ¬†According to the new WebM streaming video project FAQ, Android “Gingerbread” is due in Q4 2010.

There’s no suggestion of how significant a release this might be – some sites are suggesting it’s Android 3.0, though of course it could equally be Android 2.3 – and aside from WebM support we don’t yet know what “Gingerbread” will actually bring. ¬†Still, it’s something to look forward to as we pace the Google IO floor in anticipation of Android 2.2’s arrival.
