We have been hearing rumors that the next version of Android "Gingerbread" will be released early November, probably on November 11th. Another rumor going around recently says that Gingerbread is Android 2.3, not Android 3.0 as previously thought.
Today in a tweet, Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez, confirmed both these rumors. This is what he tweeted:
Prepare your Nexus One (Developer version) for Android OTA update 2.3 (Gingerbread) for the next few days:-D
Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez is on the leadership team of the open handset Alliance. So his tweet means a lot. This tweet confirms the rumors:
- Gingerbread is Android 2.3; not Android 3.0.
- Gingerbread will be available in the next few days - probably the rumored November 11.
And of course, Nexus One owners have a lot to look forward to.
