Is this really the Android release “Gingerbread” that we have been waiting for? The answer is probably not. Although this will be the next major release for the Android OS it will probably be like Eclair which was both 2.0 and 2.1. This being said a 0.1 jump in the number is not bound to be that big of a release to require it’s own name, but it is more like sprinkles on ice cream. They are there to add to it, but not be something on it’s own which is probably what Android 2.3 will be when released. It may be a long time until we see too much to do with Android 3.0 Gingerbread.
