Is Google About to Announce Gingerbread aka Android 2.3?

The Google Mobile Twitter account just sent out the above tweet which included a picture of a bunch of Android gingerbread cookies.  Does this mean Android 2.3 is about to be announced?  We’ll be keeping an eye out!  

Cheers sciwiz!

  • Oh nice, thanks for your information!

    does anyone know if the droid 1 is getting 2.3?

  • Ajohn7211

    Google just updated its SDK API to 8…..

  • I would love to see the Gingerbread on my Nexus One !

  • x-mas gingerbread cookies = december x-mas time release?

  • Swould333

    Just upgraded my original Droid to Droid x… the Verizon sales lady had 2.3 on her work D2… not sure if it was just her being a guinea pig trial.. or what… she didn't really seem to know THAT much more about Android, just ur typical Verizon sales associate pitch, so I REALLY doubt it was a hack… a little more hope to be spread on this up coming holiday season… 🙂

    where are the gummy buttons? :p

  • Bhaines3

    Breeding lil googles already…me too, maybe I can bring some hip ui aspects

  • Ufish2

    I depend on the hackers and dev's to get my updates NOT Moto or verzion..much better results 🙂 U>)));>2

    someone at Google has 2 much time on their hands. if their cooking cookies, they could be fixing bugs

  • michael scott

    Im all for updates but we *just* got 2.2… way to fragment Google

    • Inquisitor

      *just* got it…back in may.

      • FortitudineVincimus

        In Palm development years, that would be like 5 years ago

    • KleenDroid

      Not really, the D2 came with 2.2 installed. Do you not want an update? You can deny the update if it comes to your phone. Or root and prevent yourself from having to deal with it.

      You can keep 2.2 as long as you like.

    This is weird. To me it would seem like a strong indication that a Gingerbread announcement / press conference is around the corner, but none of the other android blogs are reporting on this? What gives?

    Also, do u think google would do a mere web release with some videos? Or would this be like a major press conference that we would be notified for way ahead of time??


    come on already

    Like my boy Homer Simpaon would say “Hmmmmmm Gingerbread Cookies”

  • Salsa_33

    They make cookies out of Gingers?

    • brando56894

      umm no they make bread out of them cant you read? 😛

      • Salsa_33

        Oh, that explains it…I was trying to figure out what breadcookies are.

  • Salsa_33

    I almost don't want to know…the rumored dates for Froyo, the delays, the spuculation and the wait was frustrating. Ignorance is bliss sometimes…

  • Robotographer

    Google Mobile has been a “promoted user” for past day. I'm not following them but in the suggestions for who to follow they've been on the top.

    I figured as much yesterday that it was probably 2.3 related.

  • JagoX

    Anyone having issues with connecting to the Market? Could mean that the release is imminent maybe…or that the Market is just down…again.

    EDIT: NVM…my DX was being finicky 😀

  • gafrican

    wasn't it rumored that the OG Droid won't be getting this update? or am i thinking of something else

    • KleenDroid

      I think it was 3.0 that the OG Droid did not meet the specs for. I believe 2.3 will be fine.

      • Pope Wilson

        It was talking about Gingerbread not being released for the OG, but the source was also calling Gingerbread 3.0 and not 2.3… guess we'll have to wait and see.

  • Skyskioc

    got milk

  • Make me want some gingerbread cookies!

  • MALfunction84

    No announcement; they're just going to give away free cookies.

  • dellbx

    Oh, great!!! another upgrade for Motorola to screw up on the Droid X

  • Today? Lets hope. The second I saw the Tweet, I got my Nexus One.

  • Michael_NM

    Coming “soon” to a Droid near you. By soon, I predict next summer. 🙁

  • DF4

    i wish i worked for Google…..

  • sciwiz

    You guys are quick. New article within 2 mins of sending in the tip. 🙂

    • Or…maybe someone else sent in the tip long before you.
