Sure, Google is expected to release Android 2.2 (code-named Froyo) any day now. But we’re already starting to hear details about the next next-generation version of Android. It looks like Gingerbread is on track for a release in the 4th quarter of the year.

We only really know two things about Google Android Gingerbread at this point:

  1. Google sure likes to come up with desert names for its Android release
  2. Gingerbread will support Google’s new WebM video format

It’s not clear at this point whether Gingerbread will be called Android 2.2, Android 3.0, or something else altogether. In fact, the only reason we know anything at all is that the new WebM FAQ suggests that Google Android will be able to support WebM and VP8 video when Gingerbread is released later this year, although that date could be subject to change.
