Android 2.3 Gingerbread Coming November 11
By on November 6th, 2010

Android 2.3 GingerbreadWord on the interwebz is that the next version of the Android OS – Android 2.3 Gingerbread is set to be launched soon. The new SDK for Android 2.3 will be unveiled on November 11. Soon after, it should start being available on major handsets like the Nexus One, Samsung Galaxy S, Motorola Droid X etc.

The speed with which handset makers and carriers have been rolling out updates has been abysmally slow in the past, but it is expected to improve. Samsung will finish rolling out Android 2.2 Froyo for the Galaxy S variants by the end of November, and we can probably expect Android 2.3 by January 2011.

The Gingerbread man was spotted on the Google campus exactly 2 weeks back, so the timing seems right for a new release. It also fits in perfectly with the supposed unveiling of the new Google Nexus 2 at Samsung’s event on November 8.

    It seems to me that most phone manufacturers have a split personality about OS upgrades to their phones. One side of them is saying “I want ppl to use my newer phone”, but the other side say “I don’t want to disappoint existing customers”.

    It’s no surprise to me that they are slow to offer OS updates. The upgrades cost money to produce and takes away resources they could be using on new products.
