Android 2.2 is about to be announced at Google I/O, and it seems that we now have a possible date for the release of Gingerbread, the next Android OS version. EuroDroid reports that WebM Project's FAQ says that the Gingerbread version is currently expected to be made available in the last quarter of 2010.
Rumors of the release date for Gingerbread this far away obviously don't carry a lot of weight, especially since a lot can happen between now and Q4, but if it does happen to release then, I told you it might. Engadget is quick to remind us that at least you have a time range to expect it in. As Phandroid says:
No other details can be had, of course (we’re still waiting to hear full details regarding Froyo), so just take this how you will.
The exact phrase in the FAQ that points this all out says "WebM support in Android is expected in the Gingerbread release (currently planned for Q4, 2010)."
