Android Police are supporting a rumor that is quite exciting. Apparently the Gingerbread SDK will be released soon, and with it a host of information about what this latest release of Android is going to do.

The application inferface will reveal a lot of the new functionality afforded by this iteration of the OS, and furthermore we should have access to a new emulator showing us what the basic Gingerbroad version of Android will look like. It still is not 100% clear as to whether this will be Android 2.5 or 3.0, so again, another minor point could be resolved with this release of the updated SDK.

    According to specs for certain tablets, they are speculating that they will be upgradable to Android 3.0. This suggests they will be using a full increment. However the SDK is getting pushed (if this is true) earlier than I expected. Unless they have been working on 3.0 concurrently with 2.2. Then perhaps older phones might see a 2.5 which is an updated Froyo > Gingerbread path…while newer phones will see the concurrently developed 3.0.

    With all the speculation over the required specs needed to run Gingerbread this makes sense. Though having two Gingerbreads doesn’t…suggesting that everything I just said is a complete fallacy.
