The release date of Gingerbread is a little bit like the persistently-rumoured Verizon-branded Apple iPhone - a never-ending saga that's spawning news and hopes, but no end product. Of course, Android 2.3 is coming (well, we have been saying that for a month now) and it seems that a lucky guy from Belgium is tasting the sweet Gingerbread flavour as we speak.
According to the Android developer Christophe Versieux, he has found someone playing with his app (BeTrains Belgium) who has a user string Dalvik/1.4.0 (Linux; U; Android Gingerbread Build/GRH14B). Whether or not this is the final (release) version of Gingerbread is to be seen, probably on December 6, which is the latest of a very long list of release dates for Android 2.3.
