Nov 8th, 2010


We’ve all heard the rumor that November 11th could be the day the oft-rumored and much talked about Android 2.3 gets unveiled. While we would have expected to hear of a Google event by now if that were the case, perhaps big G is going for an understated approach with the release of Gingerbread (or they want to kill a poor blogger’s wallet with last-minute airfare to a press conference). Nevertheless, Alvaro Fuentes Vasquez, who seems to be involved with the Open Handset Alliance, has tweeted that a build of Gingerbread will be hitting Nexus One developer phones over the next few days.

His original tweet in Spanish, when translated reads:

“Prepare your Nexus One (Developer version) for Android OTA update 2.3 (Gingerbread) for the next few days”

Now any credibility you lend to this tweet comes from Mr. Vasquez’s LinkedIn profile, which lists him as a member of the Leadership team at the OHA. We’d say don’t be too much stock in this just yet, but we wouldn’t be surprised if its true. Do you think Google makes a last minute announcement this week? Or are people getting a bit too antsy for Gingerbread?
