As we ask how many more confectionary names Google can come up with

Seeming to confirm the previous assumption that Android's "Gingerbread" code name will apply to Android version 2.3, as noted by a Google rep on an official forum.

"Yes, Android 2.3 is a 'major release," confirmed the Google rep. Until now, we had only specifically heard of "Gingerbread" and it was not stated what exact version number that would be.

Even though it seems to only be a minor step up in the version number, it seems there will be a lot of significant changes to the functionality of Android as part of the update.

First of all, Google expects to overhaul the UI - and not like when they promised to overhaul it in 2.2. This will actually make the interface look different.

For now, Google isn't saying much about what 2.3 exactly will entail, nor when it'll be available.

Oh, and in case you're keeping track, Honeycomb has already become synonymous with Android 3.0 - the next "major" update that'll come next year and be the primary platform for Android-based tablets.

Exhausted yet?
