Google android Honeycomb is version 2.4 - kind of confirmed now

While using rumors that Honeycomb will likely be Android 2.4 in lieu of 3.0, there’s much more evidence to ensure this now. Although this could be, and it has been faked, it’s starting to look a full new shade of real.

Using their Honeycomb tablet anticipated to debut at CES 2011, we are thinking if Motorola will try to be showing the hardware or not. The newest OS version is anticipated to be announced the next month, so it’s possible Motorola could show off the AndroidAndroid Honeycomb OS . Nonetheless, 2.4 has been pinging sites for a while now, but we've no clue if these visits are from the real deal, or anyone who has edited the file on the device to say otherwise.

Android
2.4 started hitting up some sites’ server logs, but in addition to those pings were Android 3.0 visits too. Faked? We’re not too sure, however the evidence that Honeycomb will probably be 2.4 appears to get stronger by the day. What we’re wondering is if Honeycomb is definitely Android 2.4 with it’s all-new UI, what would deserve the Android 3.0 name? Is Google already working on Ice Cream to floor us after the discharge of Honeycomb? Who the hell knows?

Hopefully we’ll be seeing more than simply the hardware of Motorola’s tablet during CES. Since Gingerbread isn’t as impressive as it was considered to be, although it’s still a pleasant update, people might be clamoring for something a bit better, which will be Honeycomb. We’re already beginning to see pieces of Honeycomb needs to trickle down the pipeline, so to speak, and hopefully this means we’ll see the official announcement at CES.

As is possible as it should be to fake these visits, we imagine that a good chunk of them are the real deal. Whether the device getting used is the Motorola Xoom , or a very different device we’ve not witnessed before, Honeycomb is closer than previously. Google can provide it whatever version number it wants, we simply need it on our devices pronto.

Htc desire mobile phone HD Android os 2.2.1 Update Outs On The Air(OTA)

HTC has begun rolling out an on-the-air application update to the international flagship Android device at the moment, the Desire HD. Unfortunately, this update won't run Android 2.3 Desire HD Gingerbread, the recently released new version on the mobile os. Even so, it will require the HD Need for Android 2.2 Android came with 2.2.1.

The update isn't that bad though. From what we’ve heard it brings several tweaks and a bug fix for the latest Froyo that can run HD. The show is supposedly enhanced by the few notches. It is an Over The Air Update weighs 40MB. It'll update the will HD software version 1.72.405.3 and the Android version to 2.2.1, the newest available Froyo. Aside from fixing several bugs, reported HD is a desire to attempt a bit faster overall as soon as the update.

The update isn't too large at 40 Megabytes and also the software in the handset is set to 1.72.405.3 with Froyo running 2.2.1. The Desire HD appears to run a little faster after the update. Actually, the camera looks to have most of this update and the HD recording looks improved.

For now there isn't a word from HTC to discover when the update would actually come to Gingerbread. Going through the custom stuff they've, such as Sense and other UI goodies, it might take a while for everything related to the newest Android OS.

VLC media player to land on Google android phones in Next year

The most popular application VLC Media Player will likely be landing on Android handsets soon - but only when you've Android 2.3 Gingerbread. VLC Media player is continuing to grow immensely favored by its ability to play lots of file formats, without hassle of changing between media players.

The application was already released to the Apple iPhone and ipod itouch, along with landing on the Ipad, and may soon make a look on Android blowers.

A beta edition is slated to produce from early 2011 onwards, however it is minimum system requirements will be Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so it is currently not considering being mass-market.

And so Android customers will need to wait for their phones to find the coveted Android 2.3 Gingerbread update until they could play anything that like on their phones.

Htc desire mobile phone and Desire HD Receives Update - Not Gingerbread

HTC raised the hopes of HTC Desire and Desire HD owners now, the official Twitter update read “European Desire HD/Desire Z users - consider an update rolling from today that should make your mobile experience even better”.

Consumers probably thought these were planning to get the box fresh Android Gingerbread update - sadly this wasn’t the case.

Just after realizing their Xmas Eve gaff HTC released another Tweet dashing the hopes of owners: “To clarify, the Desire Z/Desire HD update is a maintenance build based on all your feedback. Gingerbread is not a part of this update”.

Thus HTC giveth, HTC taketh away - though the update will take an increased switching process for home screens. Users may also benefit from an updated call screen that allows users to get calls on hold, view contacts during the product and add new calls.

Google officially presented Android 2.3 Gingerbread earlier this month launching the newest Nexus S Smartphone. Nothing else phone has received the update also it seems like HTC Desire owners will need to carry on waiting.

Google android 3.0: Being released in March?

The newest Android Honeycomb release rumor arises from Taiwanese newspaper Digitimes. In the center of a story about upcoming tablet PCs, Digitimes nonchalantly mentions a launch date for Android 3.0, which lots of people believe will probably be Honeycomb's official version number. (That belief may or may not be correct, incidentally; some folks think Honeycomb will end up being Android 2.4. Google so far has not given any official indication one way and the other.)

Digitimes' specific statement: "MSI is ... willing to sell an Nvidia Tegra 2-based model in April or May after Google releases Android 3.0 in March."

So does Digitimes have some understanding we do not? Perhaps  but I would not place any wagers about it. The publication includes a history of publishing tech-oriented rumors. Sometimes it's directly on the money, but often, its predictions show to be wrong.

Nevertheless, Google has confirmed that Honeycomb's being released in 2011, and an arrival sometime inside the first quarter appears like a reasonably safe bet. Marketing's already underway on an upcoming Motorola Android tablet, and also the promotional materials make it very clear that Honeycomb will likely be part of the equation. Motorola says the tablet might be unveiled on the Consumer Electronics Show in January; there is no telling, however, when it will actually carry on sale.

Don't forget, too: We have seen a prototype of the Motorola tablet launched and established. Google Android chief Andy Rubin demoed these devices throughout a mobile conference in San Francisco earlier this month. The tablet had virtual on-screen buttons instead of the hardware controls typically seen on Android phones. It had been also capable of running multiple side-by-side application panes to take advantage of the bigger screen space. One could imagine that this product Moto's introducing in January will be really similar.

The great news: January is not far away. Chances are, we'll involve some firm answers about Motorola's tablet and so also Google's plans for Android - soon

Google android 2.3 'Gingerbread' update for Nexus One soon

The first generation Google smartphone to get the latest Operating system

Google stated that an update to the firm's first smartphone from the Nexus range would provide Android 2.3 'Gingerbread'.
In the twitter update, GoogleNexus said that "The Gingerbread OTA for Google android nexus one can happen in the coming weeks. Just hang tight!."

The firm's new Nexus S phone includes Android 2.3 as standard however the first generation HTC-made Nexus One is really a popular reference device for Google android developers, preparing the impetus to roll out of the latest Operating system update.

With Android 2.3, Google focused entirely on performance and tools for game development saying that while using update the firm was "taking gaming to the next level."

Yet another performance boost develops from a technical feature Google call concurrent garbage collection to the Dalvik virtual machine. This new process was designed to minimise pauses in apps, aid smooth animation and facilitate smooth UI effect.

Google have significantly beefed in the development framework for writing native apps, that is to say code compiled directly for that ARM CPU rather then Java.

Native development is one area for Android platform improvement which the platform has been in sore necessity of in order to contend with the iPhone in games efficiency.

Google android 2.3 also contains the near field communication technologies, adds assist for SIP protocol VOIP phones and also the AAC audio and WebM video formats.

Unlocked retail Google nexus one handsets will be likely to see the update first, although usual sorts of delays will affect network-branded versions in the phone.

Google's Nexus hansets can be unlocked by user whenever they get tired with waiting for Android 2.3, they are able to always have the stock Google one and flash it for the phone.

The Nexus One's Android 2.3 Gingerbread update promised 'in next weeks'

Wow! The Google android Nexus one are certain to get its over-the-air Gingerbread update in a few weeks, based on the GoogleNexus Twitter account. In a few weeks?!? This means we have to repeatedly hit the program update button starting now, right? RIGHT?!?!

We understand, Patience isn't your strong suit. But an appealing thing happened while the Android 2.3 code was launched last week: Google said the AOSP code cannot only be compiled and slapped to a working build to the Nexus One and also the Nexus S. Of course, that did not stop anybody, and we have had builds running since last Friday night and several of them are getting pretty good. But let us give the youngsters at Google a little time to obtain things correct (and, perhaps, enjoy their holidays?) just before pushing any more code, m'kay?

Find the Gingerbread Keyboard on Any Android Phone - No Root Needed

Google android : We recently showed you the way to find the fantastic Gingerbread keyboard with your rooted 2.2 Android phone, but some kindly folks at XDA-Developers have made their own package for rooted or unrooted phones running 2.1 and above.

Unless you have a non-traditional keyboard like Swype or 8pen, you will want to get this keyboard-it's easily among the best point-and-tap keyboards entirely on Android. It's more accurate targeting, better auto-correct, and typing numbers and symbols is a lot quicker than on the stock Android keyboard. Actually, it's probably among the best traditional keyboards available for the platform now (next to previously mentioned Swiftkey, which while great, really has its share of annoyances for a few). Plus, you no longer require to flash it as you will a ROM-just download the package, tap it to set up, to get typing.

The Gingerbread Keyboard is usually a free download for Android phones running 2.1 and 2.2. If you are seeking even more Gingerbread in your phone, you should check out the 2.3 launcher in addition.

The Android 2.3 Gingerbread Ported To Samsung Galaxy S From Samsung Nexus S

Though Google has not  officially released Android 2.3 Gingerbread on some other phones aside from the Nexus S, developers made a decision to find the OS working without awaiting the term official to be attached with it.

We're excited at this news and anticipate that there'll be a soon more refined version with each one of the functions being fully operational. With the looks on the video you can view below, Android 2.3 Gingerbread seems to be running pretty smoothly to the Samsung galaxy S.

Google Nexus S to Release Thursday with Google android 2.3 Gingerbread

Google Android and smart phone fans should be to the ready on Thursday. The reason? Because Google is planning to launch it's next smartphone, the Nexus S the successor to the not popular Nexus one. The Google android based device might be available from Best Buy beginning when the shop opens it's doors at 8 a.m.

The real difference between this Nexus cracking open sale and the nexus One opening sale is the Nexus S isn't available for pre-order. Best buy will offer the smartphone to consumers for a first come basis, so if Google fans want one before they go out, then they much better get to their nearest Best Buy as soon as they get up. The smartphone may also be available at the Best Buy Mobile phone stores as well.

Nexus S FAQs

The Nexus S smartphone will probably be offered on the T-Mobile contract or being an unlocked version priced at $199 and $529 respectively. While using Nexus S Tech Specifications page, the smartphone includes Android 2.3, Gingerbread installed, which is the latest stable version of the os. The Nexus S may also be compatible with quad-band GSM (3G) and tri-band HSDPA , that is crucial information for those who want to buy the unlocked version. This means that the unlocked version even be suitable for AT&T's wireless network and another which uses GSM and HSDPA. The nexus s will likely offer Wi-Fi 802.11 n/b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 capabilities.

The style itself is somewhat similar to what the Nexus one was, even though this Nexus is manufactured by Samsung, not HTC. Because it's manufactured by Samsung, the nexus S offers a 4-inch Super AMOLED display using a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels and 235 pixels per inch. The capacitive touch screen is made from curved glass that Samsung designed so the Nexus S fits in the user's hand more perfectly. The glass can be coated with the anti-fingerprint layer.

Google Nexus One is "Failure"

An original Google android nexus one smartphone was pulled on the market after sales were regarded "lacking." On Thursday, Google announced on its official weblog that it would receive the last shipment of Google nexus one smartphones and that it'd no longer function its online web store. The actual fact of the matter was that while Google first offered the google nexus one, it predicted which it would sell a lot more smartphones in the first month than it did and at 80,000 sold, it was there are not enough to justify continuing offering of the device. Next month, it sold lower than that for a total of only 135,000 sold in 74 days.

Though Google launches are usually a "godsend' for Google supporters, if history is repeated, and then the Google Nexus S is doomed for failure as quick as the Nexus One did. However, if Google does in fact make the much desired improvements on the hardware and marketed the device correctly now, it many perfectly are the next iPhone killer.

The Google’s ‘Nexus S’ Debuts, but Will Past Missteps be Replicated?

 
Certainly, Google makes some stunning Google android phones and thus expectations are high as the web giant releases their second version of these branded smartphone, the ‘Nexus S.’ Officially occurring sale Thursday in Best Buys nation-wide, the corporation hopes avoiding the fate of the last device, the greatly sexy ‘Nexus One’ that wowed Android fans using its design and specs, but didn't sell in sufficient volumes.

The newest Nexus S certainly looks amazing. Running Android 2.3 (a.k.a. Gingerbread) can make this the first smartphone to run the Android OS’s newest iteration. Furthermore,  the device sports a 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor, 16GB of flash memory, front- and rear-facing cameras in addition to a contoured and curved 4-inch Super AMOLED screen.

Nexus S is usually the first device to support Near Field Communication (NFC), that will allow apps to communicate along with other NFC devices in close proximity. Many mobile analysts expect pay-by-phone apps o get built for this technology, that could allow consumers to pay for physical goods through touching their phone to a compatible payment device in shops.

Unlike the prior Nexus, the newest model will likely be carried in Best Buy stores and also Best Buy Mobile shop. Google certainly learned their lesson on the last time around, as most smartphone consumers need to feel and touch different models to ascertain what works well with them.

The Google nexus one never appeared in shops, instead counting on online sales via a special Google site or via T-Mobile, Google’s carrier of preference. Speaking of T-Mobile, the new model isn't available via AT&T or Verizon, quite a disappointment but is not entirely unexpected.

Nexus S Android 2.3 Smartphone Gets Destroy, We Aren’t Shocked

Due to Google’s official backing the Nexus S have been regarded by many since the Google android phone. Certainly, once the new year swings around and we start to get Tegra 2 powered devices, consumers will almost certainly be whistling another tune. However, for now the Nexus S is probably the most highly sought-after Android powered devices using a stock Gingerbread installation as well.

That really the device was already rooted literally hours after standing on the market, it’s time to see the innards. Thanks to our friends at iFixit, the inner workings from the Nexus S are already exposed and laid across the table for all those to understand. Obviously, there isn’t really much we don’t know thinking about the official spec list to the Nexus S has been out for a while. However, the one thing that's been confirmed at this tear down is the fact the screen is in fact curved. No optical illusions here.

Now !! Dual Core - LG Optimus 2X:Google android smartphone to conquer

LG's well-leaked 4-inch Google android smartphone has finally broken cover, offering such mouth-watering features as full-on 1080p playback and recording, dual cameras and - in addition - a dual-core processor, the first available for the smartphone. When should it arrive in the U.S.? Excellent question.

There's a several sour notes for the Optimus 2X we should hit first, you start with the truth that for now, it does not have a U.S. launch date. LG says the 2X goes for sale in South Korea on next month, with European countries and Asia "to follow." Regarding North America, well … still up in the air.

In addition, the Optimux 2X will not be shipping with "Gingerbread," the latest & greatest edition of Google android - not a huge wonder, really, considering that the just-released Nexus S is the only Gingerbread Android phone at the moment. Instead, the 2X will arrive using the next most convenient thing, Android 2.2 "Froyo," and LG guarantees an upgrade to Android 2.3 "in due course."

Moving to the great stuff, though: We discover the Optimux 2X includes a 4-inch WVGA display, a similar size as on Samsung's "Galaxy S" Android os phones, coupled with two cameras: a 1.3-megapixel lens in the front for video chat, and also an 8MP snapper in back able to 1080p-quality video capture.

Speaking of 1080p, LG claims the Optimus 2X can handle 1080p video playback in addition to HDMI "mirroring," which means users can transfer 1080p video to a external monitor through the phone's HDMI output although following along to the handset's display. Cool.
Other functions for the upcoming Optimus will include a built-in accelerometer plus gyroscope (naturally), along with DLNA (short for Digital Living Network Alliance) media sharing with compatible Computers, TVs and various devices in your home network.

Probably the Optimus 2X's key function will be the processor that is humming beneath the hood: a dual-core, 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 "system-on-a-chip," the first available to reach in a smartphone ?€” or, at least, the initial available to be announced in the smartphone.
The newest dual-core processor claims zippier performance than we have seen on perhaps the fastest single-core 1GHz handsets, specially when considering multitasking and handling 1080p video.

But how about life of the battery? LG has yet to speculate how long the Optimus 2X's 1,500 mAh battery can keep its dual-core engine running.

Do not expect LG to face alone in the land of dual-core handsets for long. Samsung was already chirping about its own dual-core processor, code-named "Orion," that's slated to change the "Hummingbird" chip that is powering its current crop of Samsung galaxy s smartphones. Other handset manufacturers are certain to follow.

Google android 3.0 won’t need any physical buttons

Just few days following the Gingerbread release, folks have started talking about Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Information are popping all over the Interweb, usually mentioning tablet pc's, especially Motorola Stingray.

We've got another news item to increase the pile. Via what we’ve heard, Honeycomb won’t need any physical buttons. Forget about home, back, menu and whatnot - all selections will likely be available directly on the screen, following a device’s orientation.

The principle idea is users feel “natural” when you use their devices (tablets) in every positions. Moreover, the addition of small , and always accessible main buttons (that’s links actually) should bring the desktop-like appear and feel. Unsure that’s the idea, but what can I know. I enjoy physical buttons, but since Also i dig huge screens - I understand something’s gotta give.

Certainly, Honeycomb can still perform along physical (and capacitive) buttons, leaving this to handset and tablet makers to choose whether to use them or otherwise.

The Creative 10" Android Tablet Passes FCC, Boasts HDTV Connectivity

That looks like the coming year are going to be chalked full of tablet PCs swarming this market. After Intel's announcement of 35 new tablet gracing us in Next year, there's been a flood of leaks from other vendors of coming devices to look toward.
Creative Ziio Android 2.1 tablet.

Using the Motorola Stingray gracing us several times immediately due to leaked photos and Android Honeycomb, here's another 10-inch Android tablet that just got pass the FCC.

Creative Ziio 10 10-inch Android tablet, which includes a proprietary Creative ZiiStore for buyers to download applications, games, and eBooks rather than the Android market, might be provided in both 8GB and 16GB models. The Android 2.1 tablet packs a HD cable for connecting to a HDTV, Sdcard and front VGA camera.

We are not sure if the device will be upgradeable later on and the chances look low. With Android 2.3 Gingerbread just around the corner, we are not sure how an Android 2.1 tablet would fair on the market. Unless of course Creative UK will likely be "creative" using the pricing.

Samsung Galaxy S to obtain Android Gingerbread 2.3 Up-date

The effectiveness of Twitter has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S will acquire an update to Android Gingerbread 2.3. Buyers in India asked Samsung via Twitter perhaps the Galaxy S would receive an upgrade to 2.3 and two Tweets confirmed which it would, however no release date may be given.

The game developers only got their practical Android Gingerbread 2.3 last week then it will at least be a few weeks before an update to the Galaxy S is prepared. Other manufacturers hoping for the Gingerbread bandwagon quickly include LG who's said to be in the process of updating the LG optimus. HTC have also confirmed that their array of Android devices will also receive the update but just like the others there's no clear indication when.

Android Honeycomb (3.0) was already spotted on the Motorola device so anticipate to see a fairly brisk rollout of Gingerbread to the above devices, for others we will have to wait to see.

 Are there an Android Smartphone and you think Gingerbread will be provided on it?

Samsung Release a Gingerbread Update For Samsung galaxy S

Samsung will apparently release Android Operating System 2.3, also called Gingerbread, to the popular Samsung Samsung galaxy s smartphone.

Unwiredview reviews that Samsung Mobile India released 2 separate Twitter updates that say the update might be released for that Samsung galaxy s however , there are no exact details regarding when they will likely be rolled out.

Users in Eu countries are likely to get the update before everyone else. There is not a huge difference between Gingerbread and Froyo.

The former uses the Linux Kernel 2.6.35 versus 2.6.32 for Froyo. Gingerbread now supports NFC, SIP and will offer better power management also.

Android Gingerbread premiered last week along with the Nexus S; we suspect that other manufacturers may also announce Gingerbread updates in the coming weeks and also Gingerbread smartphones too.

LG however has now confirmed that it will not be upgrading its LG Optimus handsets to Android OS 2.3.

With Orange, you have 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB of data (however , there are other variations, such as 700 minutes with 500MB of data). Vodafone offers 600 minutes, unlimited texts, and 500MB of data.

Finally, T-Mobile is providing a chunkier package around the ?35 per month deal, with 1200 minutes, 500 texts, and unlimited net (subject to fair usage). However, unlike another networks, the handset would actually amount to on this tariff, although it’s unlikely to break the bank at ?49.

The Nexus S is planned to be unleashed a week on Monday, Dec 20th, even though Carphone Warehouse website states that delivery may be by the “end of December.”

The handset could be the first phone to sport Gingerbread, Android 2.3, along with a 4 inch super-AMOLED screen, a 5mp camera (and front-facing camera for video chatting), including a 1GHz Hummingbird processor.

HTC confirm the Gingerbread coming to phones and nobody is shocked

The reports that arrives as a surprise to totally nobody,HTC confirmed on yesterday that Android 2.3 will make its way onto a few of their phones.

In the statement to Tech Radar,HTC supposed: "We are excited about the OS update coming for Android, and while HTC will definitely have some phones running this Operating System,we do not have a specific timeframe for new phones or updates at this time. Please stay tuned for more details."

Whilst we might much favor HTC replace "some" with "most" as statement, we couldalmost certainly guess that  phones will get the update (Desire HD,Desire Z,myTouch 4G and EVO 4G come on down) That said, we are a bit more concerned about their not have of a specific timeframe. Behind all,HTC Legend, that  shipped in April, just got its Froyo update now.

LG Optimus One Android Gingerbread update declined

LG claims hardware restrictions prevent FroYo phone from getting Gingerbread one, Google suggests to differ.

Just 48 hours after its debut, the rollout of Android Gingerbread has already been beginning to cause issues for Google. Using a Nexus One update still “a few weeks” away according to one dev, now LG has stepped in and said its Optimus One won’t to have to make the move to Android 2.3.

The reason why? It says Gingerbread needs a minimum 1GHz processor, and also the Optimus One has a 600MHz number inside. Based on LG’s official Facebook page in the united states, “…it’s impossible to update the processor, unfortunately”.

Except, it appears, LG’s fibbing. Android boss Dan Morrill accepted Twitter using this barbed comment: “Random note: there’s no hard minimum processor desire for Gingerbread. Trust me, if there were I’d know”. Ouch.
So, it appears, the problems mobile makers experienced with getting Android FroYo onto old devices looks set to keep with Gingerbread. Is Google releasing so many updates? Or do handset mavens have to get their act together?

The Motorola Gingerbread Android Tablet Demoed With Google's Andy Rubin at D: Dive Into Mobile conference

Google has  busy couple of days.Not just do it announce and release its latest eBook service yesterday, the search giant finally pressed out the SDK for Android 2.3 and unveiled  Samsung Nexus S, its next technically supported Android smartphone.

It seems Google did not need to stop there either. Whilst demonstrating the Nexus S handset to delegates at the D: Dive into Mobile conference, Google's Andy Rubin also pulled out a new Motorola Android-powered tablet, all but confirming rumours Google had been working with Motorola to release the first Gingerbread powered tablet.

In August, it was recommended that smartphone manufacturers were in negotiations with Google to protected rights to develop an Gingerbread tablet, after that Motorola were apparently Google's "priority choice". Digitimes speculated that Motorola's tablet would feature Nvidia's Tegra 2 platform with a 10.1 panel complete by Sharp and it appears they were not far off.

Rubin noted to the tablet was certainly sporting an NVIDIA dual-core 3D processor and from images, the device seems to be larger than the 7"inch devices presently on the market, leading us to consider the Motorola tablet is of a similar size to the Apple iPad.

All signs point to this device being the Motorola Stingray but not anything is confirmed now yet. If it does to be sure turn out to be said device, the tablet is said to be Verizon bound and strength support paid TV services, aiming at Hulu and Netflix in the process.

Android Gingerbread to be released now?

latest version of Google's Android mobile OS may be released today, news suggest - possibly meaning that the long-awaited Samsung Nexus S phone might also be just around the corner.

Gingerbread, aka Android 2.3, was supposed by Eric Schmidt (Google CEO) a few weeks before to be due for release in 'a few weeks', suggesting that it is possibly supposed to get out some time roughly now and confirmation of that might have come from a blog post by Notion Ink, makers of an Android tablet known as the Adam. Inside a blog post, they drop in the comment: '6th December is another big day for Android and you'll find how quick Notion Ink can work. (Eden is extremely compatible with 2.3)' That kind of suggests they know that today's the day for Gingerbread's release.

This tends to well tie in with an notice that is due tomorrow about a latest certification program for Near Field Communications devices. NFC is technology related to that used in contactless credit cards and many public transport payment cards, such as London's Oyster Card. It is thought to Gingerbread contains support for NFC technology, enabling phone owners to try their phone as a credit card if it has the suitable NFC chip in it.

Put together, these both propose that not just is Android 2.3 probable to come out very soon, but that we could well be considering Samsung's Nexus S phone very soon also - the next 'Google phone' after the original HTC-made Nexus One that will run Android 2.3 and have an NFC chip in it.

However in the absence of the Nexus S, but Gingerbread will arrive today, the update will mainly be limited to owners of the Nexus One - everybody else may have to wait for the phone suppliers and networks to pass on the update to them.

An additional OS losing the game is MS Windows mobile OS with 9.7% share, 2.1 points down. While iPhone 4?s OS is developing, it’s visibly slowing down and that’s because of the popularity of Google’s mobile OS, with the help of overwhelming media notice.

Android 2.3 Shown in the Google Video

Courtesy of Google Hong Kong, an official-looking video presentation Google's upcoming Android 2.3 Gingerbread have been outed.

The video,even though unfortunately in Cantonese,shows off a voice-search feature on the upcoming OS on what seems to get a Nexus One. In addition to this we acquire a better appear at how the in-development OS is going to look when it's finally outed, with several minor changes being seen in the interface and status bar. The video could be found in the link at the bottom.

Thus far we've seen very slight of Gingerbread, with only a small teaser from Google's CEO Eric Schmidt last month at the Web 2.0 summit who had what's presumed to be the Google Nexus S with Android 2.3 Gingerbread already on the device. Unfortunately all he had time to showcase was the CRT TV power off function. At the same event,Eric Schmidt said 2.3 is coming out "in the next few weeks". We can be looking at a Christmas release here folks.

The Android Market Now Includes Similar Tab


After we got a peek on Android 2.3 yesterday in one of the Google Hong Kong’s executive videos,we observed there was a third tab when the video protester appeared at a single market item. We did not know what it said, at first, because it was in Cantonese. A bit later, Engadget confirmed it said “Related” and we all jumped for joy.
Well, a pair of our readers reported afterward on that day that they’d begun considering similar changes to their Android 2.2 phones, except for the tab says “Similar” in English. I appeared on my Android 2.1 phones and the changes weren’t mirrored there.

As it’s not the biggest change in the word, It’s an adding that makes sense and reaffirms our perception that Google’s received a lot more in store for the Android market to make it simple on both users and developers. If you have an Android 2.2 device, be certain to check and see if you’ve been sent the hot bit.

Android 2.2 FroYo FroYo now on most Android phones

Android 2.2 FroYo is currently sitting pretty on most phones by Google's mobile OS. That is according to stats directly from Mountain View, that  also show that while Android 2.x has taken hold, a disturbing number of phones are still stranded on last year's editions of the operating system.

The full breakdown as 2.2 FroYo on 43.4 per cent, 2.1 Eclair on 39.6 per cent, as Android 1.6 and 1.5 users still account for 16.9 per cent of the phones available. Still, with 83 per cent on the Android 2.x, at least most punters are receiving to grips with the very most recent features.

 
These numbers are probable to change, however, with the arrival of Gingerbread 2.3 in the next few weeks. Other than with FroYo acquiring taken so long to rollout on devices packing customized skins, expect the changes to get gradual.

Android Honeycomb Gets Caught Tinkering With The Performance Tests


Excellent news, everybody! Google's going to keep working on Android behind the upcoming Gingerbread (v2.3) release! Oh, we know that?


They are most likely going to codename the next build Honeycomb! Oh, we knew that too?

Here is one you possibly did not know: an early build (or 2) of Honeycomb just got spotted in several logs whilst someone (presumably a Google engineer) was testing its Adobe AIR performance.

A little of backstory: Android can run Adobe AIR apps. Adobe developed a tool called AirBenchmark which lets customers test just how well AIR runs on their respective Android handset and send those consequences back to Adobe, so that they know which handsets require work.

From there, we presently gotta dig roughly the results history page to surface some interesting gems. Take this one, e.g. it's at smallest amount according to the data pulled from the handset's ROM, a build of Honeycomb running on a Nexus One. There are at least 2  added builds of Honeycomb in there, also running on the Nexus One.

So what can we collect from this? Fine, it appears like at least one person at Google has Honeycomb up and running on their device but in fact, we possibly could have assumed as much. But, that they are testing it on the Nexus One is excellent news -at least for Nexus One owners. The Nexus One is most probably going to stop getting updates finally but currently,it does not look like Gingerbread will be its last.

Android 3.0 Gingerbread - Detail 1Ghz minimum specs,1280?760 resolution, mid Oct.

We have been hearing about the upcoming Android Gingerbread release in this autumn  for a while now. Along with also how the new Android user interface will blow our socks off.

Still, everyone’s been attractive sketchy about exact details of what’s in fact coming to Android Gingerbread. Until now.

The Mobile-review.com’s Eldar Murtazin just went and spilled a boatload of exciting details about the upcoming Android Gingerbread release. Do not run searching for these details to his main site, you won’t find something there yet.

Eldar did all the spilling in his Russian podcast “Digestiv”. It is audio only,so the Google Translate won’t help you much. If you don't speak Russian language, you’ll have to trust me on this
        

     -  Minimum hardware requirements for Android 3.0 devices are: 1GHZ CPU, 512MB or RAM, displays from 3.5” and higher.
 
     -  Android 3.0 Gingerbread will be released in mid- October (around 15 -16th), 2010. First handsets shipping in November/December - for the Holiday Season.

      -  New 1280-760 declaration available for the devices with displays of 4” and higher.

     -  Android’s split into 2 branches will become official. 3.0 for top of the line/high end devices. Cheap, low-end mass market handsets will keep Android 2.1/2.2

     - The totally revamped user interface. If you wish to get a emotion of what Android 3.0 Gingerbread UX is like, check out the Gallery  App on Nexus One. Similar overall feel, light animated transitions,etc. Natively,through all the UI.
   

Eldar also confirmed my musings about the loss of third party User Interface shells like HTC Sense,MotoBlur,etc. Android 3.0 essentially kills the need for them.

Still, there is some hope for 3 party vendors here - while Google takes over the UI on the high end, vendors get to keep their UI shells/improvements on mass market Android smartphones, running Eclair or Froyo.

Update: I'm posted an update to this post, where I address Dan Morrill’s tweet, and do a few corrections/clarifications concerning the upcoming Android update number issues, “minimum” specs - thay are actually only “recommended”, and the the split between high end Android 3 - low end Android 2.2 devices - it’s not an official Google policy, but it is happening nonetheless.

The Nexus S Screenshots Reveal Android Gingerbread


That is unofficially - Screenshots reveal that Gingerbread will bring a facelift to Android smartphones.

Will Android Gingerbread obtain a facelift in general? XDA-Developers has posted screenshots revealing that being right, and we guess more interface and feature upgrades are going to be revealed soon. The site also says that the Nexus S will get 512 or 328MB RAM, 1GB or 2GB NAND Flash, 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen, 720p HD video recording and ARMV7 CPU that could perhaps be dual-core. processor.The screen could also probably be Super AMOLED2.

Certainly,Google's CEO recently additionally exposed that the Nexus S will sport a new NFC chip, and Acer recently revealed to Android Gingerbread will get tabbed browsing.

Not much else is known about Android Gingerbread, but agreed it appears like the Android Browser will get significant improvements, perhaps fairly a Fennec competitor, we can only hope that Android Gingerbread will also provide a better camera experience, that  hopefully also takes front-facing cameras and integration of video chat solutions into account.

Particularly the latter currently needs lots of extra effort on the OHA members' part, and we believe Android would advantage from making it simpler to integrate video chat solutions as well as offering a new advanced camera-gallery experience without having to rely on excessive customization.

Condition Android Gingerbread enables that, it will make these features a whole lot easier to sell to end-users, something that is clearly needed in the future "4G battle". Only time will tell what Android Gingerbread will present in that regard, but we guess there is a lot of new stuff of some kind on its way.

Apple Rejects Android Magazine App From The Apple App Store

It should not come as a shock that the boys in Cupertino are not great fans of anything to do with Google's Android OS. The disgust for Donut, Eclair, Froyo and Gingerbread is so huge, that Apple has still just rejected an Android magazine from the App Store.

Fortune Magazine reports to Mediaprovider, a small Danish publisher, was informed with Apple's developer relations team that they wouldn't agree to their Android magazine app in App Store. When asked by Mediaprovider's CEO, Brian Dixon, why Apple was rejecting the app, an Apple representative simply said



" you know... your magazine. It's just about Android.... we can't have that in our App Store."

The small publisher wasn't surprised by Apple's rejection and said,  

"it's funny really because I don't think we would sell many magazines on Android through Apple App Store." Appears that Mediaprovider simply might have been testing Apple to observe if they'd approve a magazine app that covered a competing mobile OS.

With Mediaprovider's app rejected, we  know that Apple has a "zero tolerance" plan for something Android related showing in the iTunes App Store.  While the Android Marketplace is open, it might be interesting to see if any iOS magazine apps show up in time for those new Gingerbread based tablets which are expected out early next time. Guess we'll have to wait and find out.

Acer is introduction its bets after Android with the declaration of a 7 " inch tablet, a 10.1" inch tablet and a 4.8-inch smartphone based off of Google mobile OS.

The unnamed tablets sport 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity,an eye-popping 1280?800 the screen resolution and 1080p HDMI capacity.

The 10.1? tablet is 13.3mm thick,making it just to a few extent wider than Apple's 12.7mm.The iPad tablet.

The larger tablet also boast a 5MP rear camera and a front-facing one. Both devices will go on auction in April or May 2011.

Acer also got the chance today to announce a 4.8? hybrid smartphone/tablet device. Also yet to be named,the smartphone is similar to the Dell Streak, but is absolutely more powerful.

It sports a 1024?480 screen resolution,a 21:9 aspect ratio, an 8MP camera with an LED Flash, a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and a Gyroscope/accelerometer combo to makes it supreme as a portable gaming gadget. It also launches in April 2011.
