The Android 2.3 Gingerbread to be introduced on December 6th

At this point, we're allowing for any date to be the official announcement of Android 2.3, or Gingerbread. We've been waiting, and waiting for some morsel of information, and once we saw this, it regarded like the pieces might indeed be appropriate together.

Mr. Android, aka Andy Rubin, might be making an appearance at an imminent show in San Francisco on the 6th of December. The show is "D: Dive Into Mobile" (yeah, we like the name, too) and that's totally possible that Rubin will be dipping some sweet, sweet facts on us concerning Gingerbread. This date is fairly believable, as it falls right in line with Eric Schmidt's words saying that the Android update should be introduced with in the next couple of weeks the D: Dive Into Mobile show will be exactly three weeks since Schmidt hinted at the release.

As I've said before, Google improved deliver with Gingerbread. The OS update has been extremely over-hyped, and once it drops, people will start to pick it a part. That will be the case with every update for any mobile OS, but iOS, WebOS, and WP7 are already extremely nice-looking on their own, and Gingerbread is said to be focused on user experience. If all Duarte has done is make the notification bar black and make the choice highlights green with Gingerbread, people may soon be turned off to the OS. We're putting our money on Gingerbread bringing a much snazzier UI to Android.

That thought, the real agreement is Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" OS. Android 2.3 Gingerbread will not step the OS up to 3.0 status, so we'll probable have to wait until the next major platform update before we see any real optimizations for tablet campaign.

Who knows at this point when we'll see Gingerbread. We know the Nexus One will get it first, and some others likely will have to remain months before they can get the latest version Android on their handset.

So, what is your bet for an Android Gingerbread release date?
