Android 3.0 Gingerbread Details Exposed by Murtazin
We’re only just seeing Android 2.2 Froyo spilling out to certain mobile devices and now we gain some insight into the next Android OS, Android 3.0 which continues the line of Google Android naming being called “Gingerbread.
According to an article over on Unwired View by Staska, the guy in the know, Eldar Murtazin of Mobile-review has now coughed up a shed load of juicy details on Android 3.0 Gingerbread although you won’t find them on his website or blog.
Apparently Murtazin released the Gingerbread details via his Russian podcast, which of course most won’t understand unless fluent in the language, but apparently Staska has done some translating and the gist goes like this…
Android 3.0 Gingerbread gets released on or about the 15th or 16th of October 2010 with the first handsets shipping in November and December. There’s a completely revamped UI. Minimum hardware requirements for Gingerbread include a 1GHz processor, displays of 3.5 inch and above, and 512MB of RAM.
Also a new resolution for 4 inch displays and above of 1280 x 760 and Android 3.0 is for high end smartphones while Android 2.1 and 2.2 will remain for low end mass market devices. Furthermore Android 3.0 will basically kill off 3rd-party UI shells such as MotoBlur, and HTC Sense.
