    I was looking for some Android 3.0 as I read many positive changes and I reading many information about features but can't found much about releasing information! I found one link from here to a tech blog where I found that it is releasing soon here I found:

    Android 3.0 Release date

    Is it really coming soon? Anyone have exact information?

    i believe google came out and said that most what is out there about gingerbread is pure speculation and that they have NOT set any specific hardware requirements. The ones stated would make sense to run 3.0 but who knows?

    There is no hard release date and given that the first devices launched with 2.2 came within the last 2 months, it would be hard to see a pre-2011 launch would be highly unlikely. Given the early release of 2.2 on the N1 it would stand to reason if anyone got it early it would be those owners and assuming the N1 meets the requirements (i would think so). Unless the "Nexus 2" was to be launched at some point (if at all) 3.0 is awhile off, given that once google finishes 3.0 it ll then go the oems to re-skin and screw up. Look how long it took for the og droid, droid x, htc incredible, and evo to get 2.2. The Galaxy S phones still don't (officially) have froyo, and forget the sony ericsson phones, they ll be lucky to get eclair while everyone else gets 3.0.

    So it means we have to wait for more time to get it!

    the sdk and the your phone getting 3.0 are completely different things. The sdk when released is for developers to get to work on stuff. Don't get me wrong its a good thing for this to be released as its a neccessary step before we would see a release for our phones, but it ll still be q1 2011 before a (consumer) phone is rocking it.

    There's rarely such a thing for any release in the wireless industry. If you want some rumors, feel free to hit the rumor mills.
