Google Android 3.0 aka Gingerbread, will appear around mid-October with the first headsets shipping in November/December time frame, according to Mobile-review.com's Eldar Murtazin. This information was obtained from Russian blogger Stasys Bielinis in a June 30th podcast that was conducted in Russia.

Bielinis told Eldar Murtazin that Android 3.0 will feature a new UI with a lot of animation. The recommended minimum requirements for Android 3.0 will call for a 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, 3.5" displays and larger. A new resolution of 1280x760 will be available for devices with a display of 4" and higher which will pave the way for Android tablets.

The user interface is completely revamped and could eliminate the need for third party interface shells such as HTC Sense, MotoBlur, etc. Google taking over the UI interface will most likely apply only to the high end devices but let vendors keep their UI for Android 2.1 and 2.2.

According to reports its very likely that Android 3.0 will be the platform for the Android tablet that Verizon and Google are teaming up to build. Back on May 11 Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam leaked some news about the company?s tablet plans with Google.
