Gingerbread, the next level of the Android OS, will show up on time for the Christmas shopping but details on it have already started to surface one by one.

However, yesterday's rumors of Gingerbread's requirements are actually not completely true. Those are in fact recommended, not minimum.

The Android 3.0 Gingerbread was first said to require some quite powerful hardware to be built in the devices it is going to run on but today the same source, Eldar Murtazin ('s editor in-chief), tweeted the following clarification:

"Yesterday have a very good conversation and some clarifications. 1 Ghz, 512 Mb etc its not minimal requirments but recommended one"

So, the new Android version will not lead to the platform splitting so all Android fans can now calm down. However, there is no word on the rest of the rumored details so we presume 3rd-party UIs won't be welcome anymore after all.

Along with smartphones, tablets should also be invited to the Gingerbread party since the Android v3.0 will feature support for a new 1280 x 760 pixel resolution and displays measuring 4 or more inches.
