Gingerbread man stands tall in Mountain View, release imminent?

No major Android update is complete without the customary unveiling of its dessert statue. The Googlers have uploaded a YouTube video showing them taking delivery, and erecting, the much-awaited Gingerbread man. Gingerbread is the next iteration of Android and was previously believed to be enumerated as “3.0.” Recent reports have suggested Gingerbread might be referred to as Android 2.3; according to a Google employee 2.3 is a “major release.” Whatever it may be numbered, the latest version is believed to bring a re-worked GUI, native video chat and VoIP calling, amongst other new features. The official release date is still unknown, but our money is on sooner rather than later. Hit the break to watch the Gingerbread man and Froyo in peaceful co-existence at Google’s HQ.
