    Gingerbread is the dessert-themed Android codename for the version 2.3 update of the open source Android mobile operating system. Gingerbread made its debut in December 2010 for a variety of smartphones, introducing Google Voice over Wi-Fi, enhanced gaming functionality and improved Google Apps.

    Gingerbread followed several earlier updates for Android Cupcake (v1.5), Donut (v1.6), Eclair (v2.0) and FroYo (v2.2) and has since been superseded by a more recent Android update, Honeycomb (v3.0), with an upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0) update currently in development.
