Android 2.3 Gingerbread arriving on December 6th?

Fandroids who have been eagerly anticipating a firm release date for the latest, yummiest version of Google’s Android OS will be pleased to know that it may be arriving the first week of December.

According to IntoMobile, Google’s VP of Engineering and co-founder of Android, Andy Rubin is scheduled to appear at the D: Dive Mobile Conference. The event is being strongly tipped as the date of Gingerbread’s announcement, as it falls in line with Google boss Eric Schmidt’s confirmation at the Web 2.0 summit just over a week ago that it would be “coming in the next few weeks”.

Although Google has remained tight-lipped as to exactly what Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread will bring to the table, a tweaked UI seems most obvious as numerous leaked spy shots of the OS has revealed and we can certainly expect some speed and battery life optimisations.

We also think there’s a strong possibility that video chat support similar to iPhone’s FaceTime may be part of the package, but don’t get your hopes up too early.

What features would you like to see from Gingerbread? Let us know in the comments section below.
