Android Gingerbread’s launch date gets really close as giant Gingerbread man arrives at Googleplex
Like it did before launching the previous versions of Android, Google has just mounted a giant sculpture that represents the latest iteration of the OS in front of its headquarters.
This time, of course, we’re talking about Gingerbread, so Google has brought in a giant Gingerbread man. This certainly means the Android Gingerbread SDK will be launched really soon – possibly next week.
As previously mentioned, Gingerbread seems to be a minor update to Android 2.2 Froyo. It should bring a new look, built-in support for video chat, and… other new stuff that we’re not aware of right now.
Until Google announces the new version of Android, check out the video below, showing the Gingerbread man’s arrival at Googleplex (apparently, the video was shot with a Nexus One):
