Ok after some confusion this morning stemming from a Huawei press release yesterday, TIMN’s Joanna Stern and Nilay Patel and I started bantering back and forth on Twitter.
A bet was casually brought into the Twitter conversation. At first, what I wanted out of the bet was for the TIMN guys to bet that Huawei would be the first device with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, or the release device. After both Joanna and Nilay clarified their position I’m sticking with the bet.
Basically if Android 3.2 officially comes out, as in an officially sanctioned, download in update settings update before the end of the summer (9/22/11) I will donate $100 to the charity of Nilay and Joanna’s choice, or $50 to Joanna’s and $50 to Nilay’s. If we get to 9/23/11 they’ll donate $100 to the charity of my choice, Cell Phones for Soldiers (gotta keep it mobile).
I hope that I’m wrong, but with Summer officially getting underway and devices just now updating to 3.1 I don’t think we will see Android 3.2 until early fall. Remember including the original Motorola Droid, Google has never hit an Android release “on time”.
