Thankfully it is a new day and with that comes some perspective. It all started when Mobile-review.com’s Eldar Murtazin spilled all the Android 3.0 Gingerbread beans yesterday on a Russian podcast titled Digestiv. The most notable claims are that Android 3.0 will come in the middle of October for a November launch with some devices. According to multiple sources, Android 3.0 will feature a totally revamped UI, but the minimum requirements include a 1GHZ CPU, 512MB of RAM with a display greater than 3.5-inches. It will also offer a new 1280 x 760 resolution. But then things really started getting out of control…Advertisement Oxford-zeiss are reporting that a tipster giong by the name of Supersonic, of Android Central forums fame, has hit them with information of a new HTC device codenamed Sabor: “The upcoming HTC smartphone destined for Sprint packs a 2GHz processor, over 1000 resolution display, Android OS 2.5 / 3.0 Gingerbread, 2 cameras with one being a 10-megapixel, 1080p video recording and built-in kickstand.” This quote was swiftly followed up by a post from Brief Mobile which outlines, in their opinion, why the HTC Sabor is fake. The critique is based on a number of points, including the following,. There are no 2Ghz processors available; 1.5Ghz are just maturing now. A phone resolution of “over 1000 resolution display” is ridiculous; you could never see the text on the screen. “Android OS 2.5 (gingerbread)” has only ever been referred to as 3.0 by all other sources. The codename itself is questionable. Wrapping up the matter is a couple of tweets from Dan Morrill, Android’s Open Source and Compatibility Tech Lead. “In summary, please remember that rumors are not official announcements. ;)” “…You shouldn’t believe everything you read, no.” “I love it when people just make stuff up and report it as news.” Go figure… 0 0 0 previous postNexus One receives additional Android 2.2 Froyo update, FRF91next postVerizon DROID Incredible to get 720p recording and mobile hotspot?
