We all know that the next major Android release will be named Gingerbread. The problem is, none of us know what the number iteration it will represent. An anonymous Google engineer has posted that a specific Wi-Fi fix will be implemented in the next “major release” for Android he referred to as version 2.3. We’re certainly not 100% convinced that Android 2.3 and Gingerbread are one and the same, but it’s definitely more plausible give Android’s more recent update numbering.
Who knows, maybe Android 2.3 is simply a smaller release intended for handsets which will not be able to update to Gingerbread. The 2.3 certainly doesn’t sound as sexy as 3.0, but numbers don’t always tell the full story. At this point, it’s all speculation. What do you think Google is up to?
