Gingerbread Snack Tomorrow?

| December 5, 2010 | Reply

I’m so hungry for Gingerbread that the anticipation is killing me–and probably every other Android user out there. Will tomorrow, Monday, December 6th bring Gingerbread? Now, keep in mind, even if it does come tomorrow, it probably won’t appear instantaneously on most devices. Most likely, the Nexus One will be the first to get the tasty snack. As far as other devices are concerned, it’s likely they will receive Gingerbread by the end of the year. Andy Rubin of Google will be speaking tomorrow at the All Things D event, and we are hoping he will provide further details. If you should come across any software updates, please let us know! Otherwise, share any predictions you might have!

The question on everybody’s lips going into this week is “Will we finally see Gingerbread?” Our answer:

Maybe. Let’s recap:

  • Google’s Andy Rubin is speaking Monday at All Things D. And there’s a pretty good chance he’ll finally give us some actual news.
  • Notion Ink — which has had a tablet in the works for a year or so now but hasn’t yet produced — says on its blog that Dec. 6 “is another big day for Android and you will find out how fast Notion Ink can work. [Eden is extremely compatible with 2.3].” (Eden is the name of the UI of Notion Ink’s “Adam” tablet.)
  • And as our French pals at Frandroied point out, a Saint Nicolas cookie is a sort of Gingerbread cookie. And Dec. 6 is St. Nicholas Day.

So we’ve got Andy Rubin speaking, a manufacturer that has yet to bring a tablet to market and French cookies. That’s good enough for us! (We’re rolling our eyes as we type this.)

Actually, nobody wants to See Gingerbread more than us. But remember that even if it’s announced tomorrow, it’s not going to magically appear on most phones for quite some time. The Nexus One is likely to get it first (or maybe the not-quite-official Nexus S). As for everyone else? Before the end of the year is extremely likely — and a lot of you are still waiting on Froyo.

So sit back, relax, and let’s see what Uncle Andy brings us tomorrow.
