Android 3.0 Gingerbread for Tablets

Rumors are spreading about Google's next version of their open source Android operating system codenamed Gingerbread.

Engadget's Chris Ziegler reported yesterday that Eldar Murtazin has "spilled a few details on what he knows of the release on a Russian podcast."

Apparently, Gingerbread is going to support 1280 x 760 resolution for devices with screens larger than 4 inches. This paves the way for tablet manufacturers to embrace Android, which Cisco is doing with the Cius tablet.

The theory is that lower-end devices will continue running Android 2.1 and 2.2, because Google is expected to require much beefier hardware to run Android 3.0.

As Ziegler notes, this sounds like a recipe for platform fragmentation.

He also reported that Android 3.0 devices should be hitting the shelves around October - just in time for the holiday season.
