Beyond Android 2.1

UnwiredView: Android 3.0 Gingerbread details: 1280×760 resolution, 1Ghz minimum specs, mid-Oct. release [Jun 30]
then: Revisiting Android 3/Gingerbread details post. Some corrections, clarifications [July 2]

Between these two original English posts has been an avalanche like reporting and discussion (almost half million hits!) of the Android future, all based on this source alone (directly or much more indirectly).
Note: The funny thing is that UnwiredView’s Staska (definitely a Russian speaker) has used as a trusted source the [30:36 – 38:45] time duration part of the Russian podcast Айфономания, серия четвертая, Выпуск 19 (or this one). One thing I would include here from that podcast: “As of today the number of daily Android activations has reached 160 thousands. With this Android will be #2 behind Symbian before the end of 2010”.

This is a typical reporting based on the UnwiredView source:
Android 3.0 may ship in mid-October, carry minimum specs [Electronista, June 30] originally named: Google may fork Android 3 to guarantee experience
which – however – worth to mention here because it has a whole chain of links to previous/other posts on the pressing issues with current Android versions, and these
also validate very much the original rumor (indepedent of its origin)
