We all have heard a lot about Android 3.0 codenamed Gingerbread, but this is the first time details for this upcoming operating system have popped up. Tech blog Phandroid has come up with these details and posted a most blurry picture (below) of a Nexus One running Android 3.0.
The Android Gingerbread is supposed to bring completely revamped UI as well as there will be two major functions added as core elements of Android 3.0. First is the video chat function, which is believed to compete with Apple’s FaceTime and second is VoIP calling to its Google Voice service.
Apart from these two core elements, there will be some other changes like graphics-related, which will include modified notification bar, some new icons, new scroll effects and some more green accents. Now Google has already mentioned that Android 3.0 is going to be for Tablet and PC tablets because previous versions of Android weren’t that good but the good news is that Eldar Murtazin of Mobile-review.com says that Google demands at least 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 1280×760 resolution for devices to run on Android 3.0 Gingerbread.
As for its availability, it has been due in October but many reports suggest that it will be announced before the end of this year.
