Preheat the oven, Google’s mixin’ up a batch of Gingerbread

Gingerbread

With Froyo still frosty and yet to be released comes the announcement of Gingerbread, the next major update to the Google Android platform. Brian Swetland, Android’s Kernel guru, recently blogged to clear up some confusion surrounding the Android Kernel and dropped mention of the new codename:

This week we’re finalizing our move to 2.6.32 for the Android “Froyo” release, and we’ll likely be on .33 or .34 for “Gingerbread”.Brian Swetlandlwn.net

I’m not sure why but the new update names always get me excited. Maybe we should start up a pool where we all take guesses at the future names. H seems like it might be a tricky one…
