Everyone is eager to see little gingerbread men running around the upcoming holiday season, but this Gingerbread rumor is about the SDK (Software Development Kit) for the next generation Android OS. Sources claim it will go public next week. We don’t know yet what version of Android the new Gingerbread will be (2.5 or 3.0), but either way we’ll be happy to see the newest OS from Android.

Google’s Froyo (Android 2.2) was announced on May 20th, so according to Android’s 6-month release cycle, this time next week will be roughly 5 months since it came out. But with the holiday season ahead and hope of a better Android tablet on the horizon, we wouldn’t be surprised if Google decided to fast track the announcement of Gingerbread to next week. What are your thoughts?
