Android 2.3 Gingerbread Release Date 11 November?

Here at OSM, we recently reported on the subsequent arrival of the Samsung Nexus Two on November 8. If launched, it will bring Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with it. But today, news reports are telling us that the Gingerbread arrival date has changed to that of November 11.

According to the team at Pocket-Lint, Intro Mobile has told them that the “Software Development Kit (SDK) for this upcoming revision will debut on November 11th.” For the tech world, this coming week is set to be one of the biggest in relation to new device launches. In America, the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Windows Phone 7 will make their debut, along with the possible Nexus Two device and news of the iOS 4.2 for the iPhone and iPad making an appearance.

So with this mind, now would be a good time to launch Android 2.3, it was only last week that a giant Gingerbread statue was erected outside of Google’s Headquarters.

Until confirmed, it looks like we have a pretty eventful week ahead of us? Let us know if any of the launch dates this week benefit you? To find out more on this log onto Pocket-Lint.

    My Droid 2 is now running system Version 2.3.20A955.Verizon.en.US

    But still running Android 2.2?

    System version is irrelevant. Do you really think they're going to make a version of Android for every carrier?

    Settings->About->Android version is the only number that matters.

    I too received the update but my system version still reads 2.2… quite bizzare, I thought id have a fancy new interface after it restarted. I ended a call and the a message popped up on my d2, I hit accept, then my device rebooted after it showed the recovery briefly.

    it is not a OS update its a sytem or firmware update for hardware drivers and such.
