QuickPress: Android Has Finally Updated Gingerbread!


After a long wait for most Droid 2 users it seems that of today, Google has finally updated Android 2.3 code name- Gingerbread. After most people switched to different versions of Android and newer models of Android supporting phones there seems to be a rocket boost for 2.3 downloads of Gingerbread. This new little update for all Droid 2 has a few new features that you will probably notice after you Droid 2 people update your software which is currently strongly recommended to prevent any hacking or any other problems that may occur for you normally.

It seems that Gingerbread 2.2 seemed to be a little buggy and the same features were played over and over again which just made it boring for Droid 2 users ,and Android moved on to put Honeycomb and the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich on to the other devices that seemed to be much more compaitable for the Android to make a good marketing share and to make a good leap for it’s own good.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Just Leaked From the Freezer!


It seems that the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich beta) that is currently being tested by Google has run away from the freezer. I guess now people know what’s going on in the Google’s lair. Bum, bum, bum. That can be a good thing and maybe a little bad. Android Ice Cream Sandwich seems to be the next operating system for a lot of tablets except for Apple of course. You can see that both Android Police and RootzWiki have gotten hold of the leaked OS and have gotten a few snapshots, but covering the vital details of the project.

It looks as if Ice Cream Sandwich has some new features ,but also have the same ones that you would find in Honeycomb. It’s not fully 100 % confirmed that this will be the next major version of Android like how iOS developers are going from 4.0 to 5.0. Well that’s how it kind of is for Android just that it is going from 3.0 to 4.0. Google is trying to get out Ice Cream Sandwich before Apple releases their version of the new iOS 5. Right now Google is trying to make sure that this new version of Android can work on both tablets and smartphones. So it seems like the newest version of Android 4.0 won’t look super cool which brings doubts on people on whether if the photo is fake or if this isn’t a major update.

Apparently there are a few differences just by looking at the snapshots and comparing them to how Honeycomb looked. Google still wanted to keep the look of it very digital and a lightweight look.

These photos may be a fake or they just may not be. Who knows? We just have to wait until the real thing comes out. Look at the bottom slideshow for the snapshots of the the leaked images of Android Ice Cream Sandwich
