New android os coming out soon 3.0
I'm waiting on my droid X, my first android phone from BB. I have been reading all kinda of android os/phone posts and have a question. I read somewhere that android 3.0 (gingerbread?) will be coming out the end of the year? didn't 2.2 just come out?
I ask this because I remember reading an article a few months back about how good wants to stop coming out with a ton of OS and get most phones running the same one instead of having all different versions floating around ala BB.

gingerbread will be out sometime, but i wouldnt stress it until 2.2 actually sees a widespread release. there will always be persistent rumors of the new os, but google has said they are trying to cut back on the number of firmware releases they come out with and just making each release a bigger deal. i wouldnt expect gingerbread until 2011 at the earliest

I have heard gingerbread would be 2.3 or 2.5. I have never heard it referred to as Android 3.0.

its hard to say exactly what it will bring about but from blogs i have read it is supposed to be more or less a visual overhaul. a whole new UI or at least a lot that will be edited from the previous version. the only thing is that these are rumors are not facts, just assumptions by other people.

Also, we may see music streaming over 3G or some kind of improved music store.
In short, Gingerbread will be a HUGE update.... I am just not sure if it will be 2.3, 2.5, 3.0, or something else.

After Gingergread (Just for fun)
So the Android 2.2 is codenamed FroYo, and the next one is pretty certainly Gingerbread. Just for fun, does anyone want to place their bets on what's coming up after GB?
I'm putting my money on either Hazelnut or Honey Cake (I start thread, therefore I get two guesses).
This is just for kicks, so throw out what you think (or want) Google to name the far distant future of the Android OS. And be fair, everyone gets one guess, and if you get it right, you win two internets.

does it really matter what number it is? i mean really as long as its packed with goodies and improvements thats all that should matter, oh and also that the carriers and manufacturers don't take 6months to a year to get it out once its released.
oh and my vote for the H version is Honey Bun.
