Android Gingerbread pencilled in for Q4 2010

Android GingerbreadWe are only just digesting news of all the new features in Android 2.2 (Froyo), but life doesn’t stop there and it seems that the next major release, codenamed Gingerbread, is planned for the fourth quarter of this year.

The date was leaked in a FAQ for the newly announced WebM video format. “WebM support in Android is expected in the Gingerbread release (currently planned for Q4, 2010),” the FAQ reads.

The carrot moves ever-forward. Yes, we may be getting Android 2.1 by the end of the year, but by then, us Xperia X10 owners will be two major firmware revisions down. Even more reason for Sony Ericsson to at least give us Froyo by the end of the year.

  1. why sony so lagging on this? Sony please expedite this and don’t let the users down.

  2. Quite shocking really, that SE would stand back and allow themselves to be swept under the carpet by HTC and Motorola. Not nice when you shell out the wedge for the phone, only to get a ‘We can’t be bothered’ attitude from SE.
