Things Gingerbread 2.3 did better than Froyo 2.2 to become most loved Android flavor
Back in the not-so-good old times, Google had a nigh weird business strategy to release very minor updates of its exalted Android operating system. Of course, that made the OS prolific in every sense of the word, but the smartphone users were the ones who had to shift their version 'loyalty' in a mercurial manner. Seemingly, the Froyo (Android 2.2) was among the first of the 'major' upgrades (released in May, 2010) with navigation bar changes in the UI and incorporating tethering and portable hotspot. And then came the OS to rule all our geeky hearts. Yes, we are talking about Gingerbread (Android 2.3), and since its release in December 2010, it has become the dominant OS in most of the contemporary Android phones.
