The net is all abuzz over HTC’s quiet mentioning that both the HTC Salsa and ChaCha phones will be bypassing Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) in favor of it’s successor, vs. 2.4. But is the change a lack of confidence in Gingerbread or is it just moving on to a version that fixes bugs that have popped up? Or is it just a typo? Nonetheless, confusion is brewing.
HTC has since corrected their online press release to reflect the phones will be running Gingerbread 2.3.3, which would support the bug fix theory. But many people are wondering if HTC is just hoping for the hybrid version of Honeycomb that Eric Schmidt mentioned in his keynote today which would offer phones many tablet features but can run on a more mobile solution.
If that’s the case, then maybe we’ll just have to wait and see.
