Got some salt nearby? Grab it and take a seat. According to E.Murtazin who isn’t the most trustworthy source around…. Google is aiming to take a similar approach to Windows Phone 7 with the upcoming Android 3.0 aka gingerbread release at the end of the yer. OEMs will supposedly no longer be able to customize the UI and there will be minimum specifications for the hardware:

•Android 3.0 Gingerbread will be released in mid- October (around 15 -16th), 2010. First handsets shipping in November/December – for the Holiday Season.
•Minimum hardware requirements for Android 3.0 devices are: 1GHZ CPU, 512MB or RAM, displays from 3.5” and higher.
•New 1280×760 resolution available for the devices with displays of 4” and higher.
•Completely revamped user interface. If you want to get a feeling of what Android 3.0 Gingerbread UX is like, check out the Gallery App on Nexus One. The same overall feel, light animated transitions,etc. Natively, through all the UI.
•Android’s split into 2 branches becomes official. 3.0 for top of the line/high end devices. Cheap, low-end mass market handsets will keep Android 2.1/2.2
