I think it’s about time the rumour mill got started on the news about Android Gingerbread (3.0, or whatever number they plan to give it). Details released by Phandroid yesterday suggest that there a few new graphical tweaks coming to Android as well as some new core features such as video calling as well as VoIP integration.
The UI tweaks include:
- Smoother kinetic scrolling
- ‘Bounce-back’ scrolling like on Sense UI, TouchWiz, iOS
- More use of the colour green.
- Icons in notifications bar look more in unison
- Sharper looking icons all round
If you can also remember back a handful of months ago, Google announced that a Music Store would be launched alongside Android 3.0, so that’s something else we have to look forward to. You can find the worlds worst/blurriest picture of what is meant to be a Nexus One running Gingerbread.
