Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) details slowly start to trickle out: First shot of Google Android 3.0 on Running Nexus One Inside!

October 19, 2010, By Shawn Wagnon

It was back in last July that we had some sort of news about Android 3.0 (Gingerbread), with Android Project Manager revealing that Google intends to have its own music store when Android 3.0 comes out. Now we are starting to get further details after a really long gap. The first major news that will interest Android users is that Google’s Operating System has undergone UI Retooling to a large extent. What are the other changes in offer come Android 3.0?

Apart from the welcome UI retooling, there are graphics related changes such as reworked notification bar, new icons, new scroll effects and more green accents. But what is significant is that further enhancements will come once Gingerbread actually is out as individual Google Apps will evolve accordingly. The change in Graphics User Interface is not all you will get with Android 3.0.

The two major talking points surrounding Gingerbread have been Video Chat and VoIP services from Google. That is right! The OS will be majorly focusing on integrating both Video Chat components and VoIP services into the Android platform and giving Android-based Smartphone users a whole new experience in internet connectivity and communication.

So, with the details out of the way here is the ‘supposed’ snapshot of Android 3.0 running on Nexus One.

Yes, it is not much. In fact, it is barely anything substantial. But we are still happy as at least now we know what the shape of Android 3.0 looks like; with few details now out. Hopefully more will follow in coming days. Stay tuned…
