Last time Google got a shipment of an oversized dessert, it was only about a week until the release of Froyo. Today Google received a giant Gingerbread man to join the collection of other desserts. It's unclear if that means we're only days away from the Gingerbread release, but it surely means that we're close.
In related news, it appears the new version of Anrdoid OS won't be 3.0, or even 2.5 -- but 2.3. I hope this is a case of under promising and over delivering. Unless this release is incredible (which I hope it is), I am very interested in getting my hands on a Windows 7 device. As a developer, the .NET platform and Silverlight is far more appealing than anything else on the market.
Watch the gingerbread man being delivered.
