    The only thing I have heard is the minimum suggested requirements from Google.
    Minimum hardware requirements for Android 3.0 devices are: 1GHZ CPU, 512MB or RAM, displays from 3.5

    What's great is my captivate fits that hardware requirement, so I'm really hoping to get Gingerbread.

    At this point I just want 2.2. What's taking them so long? :-(

    My Evo fits the bill as well. I'm worried though that when 3.0 does come out, the Evo won't see an upgrade for quite a while for there will be phones out with bigger and better specs that will require OEM's primary attention. So, it may be 4 or 5 months after Gingerbread is out before the Evo may see an update. And with the Evo "just meeting" the minimum requirement spec, I wonder if its performance will take a hit even if its updated.

    WOW! I had to jump through hoops to get the subsidized price for my Evo. But, i wanted one so bad, I would have eventually paid the full price had I not been able to get it subsidized at the time I did.

    Weren't those minimum requirements dismissed as a hoax though?

    Google stated that the Nexus 1 is the measuring stick for Gingerbread. Phones with lesser specs probably wont handle it smoothly

    I've seen many efficient OS's end up in last place because they couldn't take advantage of the latest hardware.
