Yes that’s right! The new version of Android will be named “Gingerbread”, no more rumors. The folks over at Google have dished a few details on Gingerbread (Android 3.0). Although it’s not officially announced, the name has been confirmed by a video uploaded on Youtube by AndroidDevs shows the Gingerbread statue arriving in a truck at Google’s HQ, being moved to the left of Froyo’s statue and then being erected by Google employees.
What about the new features included in this Gingerbread? Well, earlier this month, Android chief and vice president of engineering explained:
“More forms of communication. I think social media is a form of communication,” Rubin said. “I think you would just talk about general improvements to the platform and make it faster and more robust. I think gaming is an area that I think is underserved right now. We’re actually going through a reinvention of casual gaming. If you look at a console game like an XBOX or a PlayStation or a Nintendo, I think it’s very, “sit down and try to get to the maximum level possible.” On cell phones and devices that are battery operated, I think there’s more kind of “what do you do in between the times when you’re doing something?” It’s more about running a game to fill time rather than running a game to be a dedicated event.”
