I doubt gingerbread is going to bring many improvements over froyo on older phones, but should provide an increase in resolution which is most welcome for larger screens(think 4" with 1024x700). This is the main reason why I urge anyone currently considering buying a phone to wait and see what kinds of announcements we'll get once gingerbread is out in the open. I mean there's really nothing to lose as all of the currently available android phones have issues that could potentially be fixed by the end of September, and if not you'll be glad you didn't spend your hard-earned cash on a phone that doesn't work as it should.
