Android 2.2, better known as FroYo, is barely out of the stables just yet, but that doesn’t mean Google is resting on its laurels with word of Android 3.0 aka Gingerbread being prepared for a Q4 release later this year. The crystal ball has become a whole lot clearer this time round concerning what Gingerbread offers, where among them a completely revamped user interface which is touted to knock your socks off. It will require some pretty beefed up hardware requirements though, including a 1GHz processor at the very least (qualifying devices such as the EVO 4G, all Galaxy S variants as well as the Desire among others), 512MB RAM, a 3.5″ display or higher with support for 1,280 × 760 resolution. What is clear though would be the brancing off where hardware is concerned, since lower end handsets will max out at Android 2.2 at best, while newer high end Android phones should ship with Gingerbread.
