Google’s most happening platform, Android is rumored for another new version codenamed as Gingerbread. Android 3.0 aka Gingerbread is expected to release by the end of October this year with many enticing features along with a boost in the minimum required hardware specifications.

Gingerbread brings in support for an impressive screen resolution of 1280×760 for displays larger than 4 inches, the new version might require a 1 GHz CPU and 512 MB of RAM. Many hardware enthusiasts of the upcoming Android 3.0 have started tweaking prototypes of Android tablets with high-resolution screens. As per analysts, Google will continue to work up on the Froyo (Android 2.2) and try to maintain it parallelly with the Gingerbread (Android 3.0) wherein Android 2.2/Android 2.0 will be available for lower-end devices and Android 3.0 for the devices with high requirements. Seems like a similar strategy of Nokia, which will soon implement in its handsets (MeeGo for the high end Smartphones and Symbian for the mass-market Internet-enabled phones).
