A sneak peek at the Android Gingerbread

By on October 21, 2010

After the Froyo, the next update to the Android OS for mobiles is named Gingerbread and has not yet been officially launched by Google. But online leaks suggest that the Android Gingerbread will probably work on the UI and the speed of the apps and the mobile device.

The Gingerbread update will tweak display and colour settings to give a more polished look to icons and incorporate more of the green colour in the themes in general like the green colour of the Android logo.

The most changed operation will be chat as with Android 3 or Gingerbread; Google aims to provide the same protocols that enable chat on PCs, to the mobile Android OS’s latest version.

Providing SIP support to Google’s voice app which will allow users to receive voice calls over Wi-Fi connection to their Google Voice number is also being developed. This is not exactly a novelty in terms of features as there are a number of VOIP providers in the market these days.

Apart from this, effects like a slight bounce and a glowing bar which indicate that the list you are scrolling through has reached its end, will also be a part of the Android 3.0 a.k.a Gingerbread. Google will also be looking to up the system’s performance speeds by introducing hardware acceleration, which is the feature which makes all of Apple’s mobile devices running smoothly at high speeds.

The You Tube app on the Gingerbread will be the latest updated version and it will include the Lean Back version of the website. This will allow users to have the video based social network in continuous play mode. Other small but notable changes include a bright green dialler button which is a stark departure form the grey colour it has sported till now.

The release of the Android OS 3.0 or Gingerbread, was rumoured to be released by the end of this year but it is likely that it might not make it this year and instead Google might be looking at an early 2011 launch of the latest version of its Android mobile platform.
