Android Gingerbread Almost Ready, Tablet Samples In December?

DigiTimes is reporting that Google has notified its partners that Android Gingerbread is almost finished, and that engineering samples will be available in December. DigiTimes, known for being hit-or-miss on their rumors, say that they have multiple sources inside several notebook manufacturers

According to the DigiTimes article, major manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, Motorola, Acer, Asustek Computer, and Micro-Star International will be showcasing their tablets at CES, which will be in January.

The DigiTimes article also seems to strengthen the case that Android Ice Cream will be released in the second half of 2011.

Also mentioned in the DigiTimes article is their sources' belief that Android Gingerbread will be a greater competition in the tablet market once launched. They also write that rights to the Android OS and typical hardware are cheaper for manufacturers than making a Windows-based solution.

Android Central sums it up pretty well by saying that Android fans should, "in short, expect to see tons of Android tablets come January." BoyGeniusReport seems to be just a tad skeptical in regards to "whether or not consumers will bite", but only time will tell.
