It has been long rumored that Google will release a cloud-based music service that will integrate with Android, with Google having showed off a preview last year at its Google IO dev conference.

And now a device that claims to run Gingerbread also appears to have a Google Music option in the Data & Synchronization menu. Whether this is a feature we will see with Gingerbread (Android 2.3) or one that we will have to wait for remains to be seen.

First off, we would think that most, if not all, versions of Android will get this feature.  Why limit your user-base.  So users on Froyo (and for you unfortunates of Eclair still) I think its safe to say you will see this feature as well.  Second the rumors regarding a Google music store have been floating around for a while now so its only a matter of time we think.

Well thanks to @Andrew Denniston for posting the picture up.
