Google Shuts Down Gingerbread Rumors

Well, Wednesday’s Gingerbread rumors have officially been shut down by one of Google’s lead Android techs.  (All Droid 1 users please exhale.)  In a series of tweets yesterday, Dan Morril went off about the latest Android 3.0 rumors, reminding anyone who would listen that “rumors are not official announcements” and that we all “shouldn’t believe everything we read.

Nice reminders Mr. Morril.  Sometimes we all get a little too excited when news about the next Android OS is floating around in the wild.  We just love us some Android baby.  And man are we excited to hear that our Droid 1 will still have a chance at some Gingerbread love.

Oh and hat tip to Koush for calling out the original source immediately.

Who’s throwing the party this morning?

    Android updates are alphabetical goodies. Version numbers, like 2.2, are practical, but Google's naming scheme is much better equipped to indulge a craving. Froyo, for frozen yogurt, is the current Android 2.2 being pushed to handsets..thanks for this nice post….

    I dont mind rumors at all…Just preface them with 80-point letters “THIS IS JUST A RUMOR”. Thats all you have to do. I'd be happy with that.

    Nobody else asked this question? This site sure didn't help by presenting it as fact. The moment I read the article, I asked “Who is this guy, and what makes him credible?” Which is the first thing bloggers and journalists should be asking. Bad reporting all around.

    Also the screen resolution specification would put the N1 as obsolete as well. I don't think google is ready for that just yet.

    :-) <—— Me very happy now

    I would have to say I agree with you. After all they did hire the lead ui designer of palm. Also I would highly doubt they would release an os with those requirements. I mean afterall with the screen resolution specification their beloved N1 would be without Gingerbread.

    Send him a little email. His “authority” is more in question since he's in Russia.

    If Apple came out with that one-button phone, there'd be lines around the block. *eyeroll*

    Kellex, Pete, JRummy, and Koush, the (non) fearsome-foursome that will assimulate us all…. hopefully. ;-)

    Dan's a pretty well respected guy, and I doubt his motives would be so unscrupulous.

  • poeddroiduser

    Why are there rumors, BECAUSE GOOGLE DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING OFFICIAL! Want to stops the rumors, SAY SOMETHING ON THE RECORD! GEEZ…

    PR 101 – Even Tiger knows this

    Yeah, probably ought to put Pete in that list. I personally don't have any luck with his ROMs but I understand that he contributes mightily to progress of the whole Android multiverse.

  • kellex

    No need to apologize. I'm always open to people calling me out, I have no problem with that. Just don't take extra steps to start unnecessary arguments with other readers. It does nothing for any of us.
