Android 3.0 Gingerbread scheduled for October?

Google had recently released Froyo, their latest Android update but rumors are surfacing that the new Android OS code named Gingerbread 3.0 is scheduled for release in October. More specifically October 15-16. Gingerbread will be the latest Android OS and Google plans to slow down updates after Gingerbread is released because they want to keep it to one update a year (rumor).

The new update will have some steep requirements that may not be supported on certain Android phones, let me list the requirements below:

  • 1GHz CPU
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 1280×760 resolution for displays 4″ or bigger
  • Completely revamped user interface
  • Minimum 3.5″ display

With the requirements being more steep it will split the Android Market from High end devices to medium end devices, high will support 3.0 and medium will support 2.1/2.2 Froyo. But with phones like the Samsung Captivate from AT&T and the HTC Evo, I think the phones won’t have a problem with the new OS. If not listed above, what do you expect in the new Android OS?
