Android 3 aka Gingerbread Details Leaked

Thanks to a tip from XDA member M_T_M, we have learned that Google is not exactly sitting down, patting themselves on the back for the success of Froyo. As it turns out, Google devs are actively working in the next installment of their increasingly popular Android OS. This new version will be known as Android 3.0, codename Gingerbread, and it seems to be fit for mostly high end devices.

According to the article found in the website unwiredview.com, the OS will be designed to put our higher end devices to the test. The minimum requirements for the OS to run properly are along the lines of 1 GHz processors, 512 MB RAM, and a 3.5 inch screen (1280 x 760 of resolution will be an option whenever a device with these screens becomes available). Please keep in mind that these are all minimum specs! So, if you are expecting the next best Android phone to make you a cup of coffee while you are doing your chores, this OS might have enough oomph to do just that.

The details are still scarce but it seems that we should see something made public sometime in October, so keep your eyes peeled.

Please go to the unwiredview to read the full article and for more information.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
