Android 3.0 is called Gingerbread is for high end devices only, Google’s sweet tooth has it’s boundaries
Google’s getting my sweet tooth in a tizzy. Froyo isn’t even here for all of Android-land yet and there’s already word and specs on version 3.0. It’s being called Gingerbread (slurp, slurp) according to a Russian Podcast. According to the same podcast, the 3.0 update will be just for high-end devices as it brings in supports for some pretty high-end features. The handsets that would incorporate 3.0 would have to be equipped with a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and have 3.5-inch or larger displays. Devices with larger displays like Tablets would need to have a 1280 x 760 resolution minimum. All custom made UI’s by manufactures might be done away with in lieu of a 3D UI that Google will be incorporating into the OS update. I’m not sure I’m for this segmentation of devices according to the version of the OS, what do you think?
