It has been quite some time since we last heard rumors about the Gingerbread. Eric Schmidt had said sometime back that Gingerbread will be available “in the coming weeks“.
While that itself does not give us a complete picture, we now hear that the tentative date of release could be December 6. Why? Because Andy Rubin, the founder of Android and now the vice president of engineering at Google has confirmed his participation at the D: Dive Into Mobile event to be held at San Francisco on that date.
The Dive Into Mobile conference could be a great platform for Google to unveil, if not launch, Gingerbread to the public. Considering that this is not a really major update (it’s 2.3 and not 3.0), we really do not expect Google to come out with an exclusive media event anytime soon. Nevertheless, let’s hope there are at least some interesting pieces that Google will come up with in this update.
