Given that everyone in the Android blogosphere is chomping at the bit for information regarding Google’s next Android release, codenamed Gingerbread, it was only a matter of time before someone took advantage of this appetite.

We reported a couple days ago that a rumor regarding the minimum specifications for Gingerbread was floating around via a certain mobile news website. It seems now, though, that Android engineers #romainguy and #morrildl have both lashed out at the author whose podcast broke the “leak”.

While #romainguy’s response isn’t quite as humerous, it’s equally as dismissive.

I love it when people just make stuff up and report it as news.http://goo.gl/cwbf (via @morrildl)


We, too, were duped by the low-hanging fruit this information presented itself as, and for that we apologize to our readers.
