Android 3.0 Gingerbread SDK Could Land Next Week

The Android Police website is reporting that the next version of Android OS could be landing soon. The SDK has been tipped to launch next week for Android 3.0 Gingerbread although the numbering isn’t confirmed as 3.0 just yet.

After Android 2.2 launched, Google [GOOG] started slowing down the Android updates to put them on a 6 monthly basis rather than whenever ready. By doing this they prevent fragmentation that we still see on many Android based devices.

If Google do stick to a 6 monthly cycle then we could see the next iteration of Android (3.0? 2.5?) launch sometime in November as Android 2.2 was launched in May of this year (5 months ago).

Features expected to arrive in Gingerbread include compatibility with tablet devices. The larger screen will be optimised for far better than the current versions of Android is. Perhaps we’ll also see the Android Market holding both Android smartphone apps as well as Android tablet apps much like the Apple App store does.

If the SDK launches next week, we are sure we’ll be getting all the official details soon.
