    This was taken from the CNET website. It says that Google is already working on the next Android release, codenamed "Gingerbread". We don't even have Froyo yet! Anyway, here's some details:

    Gingerbread
    Even while Android users are scooping up Froyo, many are already looking to the next OS iteration, Gingerbread. There has been much rumor and speculation, but apart from slipping the code-name once, Google has remained tight-lipped.
    We do, however, know a few features that Google demoed this past May at its I/O conference, so there's a good chance these could show up in Gingerbread. One is video playback using the WebM video format that Google has developed. Another is a refurbished, account-based online Android Market with the capability to load apps over-the-air. In other words, clicking the installation button on your computer screen will kick off a physical download--not just the download link--directly onto your phone.
    Google's crew also discussed an Android Market music store to rival iTunes. Google's acquisition of Simplify Media bolsters the plan for Android to facilitate streaming selections from your PC music library onto your smartphone. We know that Google has a keen eye on Apple's iAds push, and is further developing its mobile advertising strategy.
    According to rumors, Gingerbread will include copy/paste improvements and will require certain hardware specssuch as a 1GHz processor, 512MB memory, and 3.5-inch or larger display. Rumors suggest we could see Gingerbread as soon as autumn. However, in light of Froyo ongoing release coupled with Andy Rubin's statement regarding a slower release schedule, that seems too soon.

    Froyo code is complete, and has been for a while. Google has to keep their Android devs busy.

    2. if the date is the only thing that gave it away I feel sad for you.

    EDIT: I fixed the date. Now I bet people believe it.

    No, I feel sad for you, because I didn't need to read past the date. In fact, I didn't read one word past the date to know it was fake.

    *yawn*

    Efficiency. Work smart, not hard.

    Hmmmm. Let us all extrapolate based on lack of a needed maintenance update and 2.2 lag thus far on the Inc.... OK- based, on the current trend and trajectory and using a polynomial based curve to derive my forecast, it will be January, 2112... Great Rush album, at least ;)

    added:

    OK, if I use an exponential curve, we may eek it out in 2012, but that is using some serious data bias to get er' done :)
