AIR Benchmark, a website designed to test Adobe AIR performance on mobile devices, has seen pings recently from new versions of Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Both new Android OS builds were running on Nexus Ones.

On the 24th, Android developer Christophe Versieux, author of the BeTrains Belgium app, sent a tip to Android Central that Gingerbread version GRH14B was spotted in the testing results. Then, yesterday, Gingerbread version GRH47B showed up.

Also listed in the results are two different versions of Honeycomb, HRI783D and HRI83D, running on Nexus Ones.

Now that Gingerbread has been spotted in the wild, the rumor mills will likely be ramping up, and (fingers crossed) it’s only a matter of time before a release candidate is leaked to the Nexus One community. Until then, I’m going to continue to compulsively dial *#*#checkin#*#* and checking the newsfeeds, so I can update my Nexus One as fast as possible.
