The next decimal update of Google’s Android operating system is set for a release next week, inside sources claim.
IntoMobile has apparently learnt from ‘trusted sources’ that the eagerly anticipated Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, is due for release on November 11th and that Google is already testing the software on multiple devices.
The search giant has made no secret of the imminent arrival of the firmware by placing an oversized Gingerbread Man figure outside its headquarters a few weeks ago.
Unfortunately, we don’t know what these devices are. Although rumours recently hit the web that a successor to Google’s ill-fated Nexus One may be on its way and running the latest firmware. Sadly both Google and the Nexus Two’s supposed manufacturer, Samsung, have categorically denied any existence of the device.
Features of Gingerbread are said to include a revamped user interface, advanced navigation, better HTML5 support and last but not least, a video chat service similar to that of Apple’s FaceTime.
