Gingerbread was previously thought to be a major revision for Google’s Android OS, but recently many are considering Gingerbread to be an incremental build, with the major revision, up to Android 3.0, saved for Android Honeycomb, the version that will come following Gingerbread.If the recent update to the Google Maps program is any indication, Android 2.3 Gingerbread will probably have a crisper, more modern UI design element. Android blog Android Police first spotted the difference between the updated Google Maps program and its prior release and noticed that the new pop-up dialogue box has a darker tone and bolder appearance. You can see the new dialogue box in the image on the left hand side and compare it to the older version on the right hand side. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is speculated to follow a similar design cue.
For its part, Samsung is being bullish on its tablet endeavors. The company’s India division has promised an upgrade for the Galaxy Tab to both Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
