Android 2.3 Gingerbread unveiled in official Google video
However, Google Hong Kong has recently posted a video showcasing Voice Search in Cantonese and – surprise – the smartphone on which the app is demoed runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
There aren’t too many visual differences between Android 2.2 and Android 2.3: the status tray is now black, the launcher is slightly tweaked, and some buttons are restyled.
Update: unfortunately, the video has been removed by Google Hong Kong from YouTube, which means Google still doesn’t want us to see Gingerbread in action.
Since Eric Schmidt said not long ago that Gingerbread would be launched “in the coming weeks”, it shouldn’t take long until the new Android OS finally becomes available.
