That’s right you read it, finally we have a piece of that cookie! I woke up today a little but late but not late enough to catch the new post of at one of our favorite sites Android Central showing that Gingerbread was officially announced with their SDK backing all of the changed up. We get to check out the new menu area which is blacker then a ninja, which I bet Chris Bogart on the team is loving every second of this release. Gingerbread is also sporting some bright green indicator marks and some greyed out notifications. I do love the new style live wallpaper which seems less “Droid and more Android” in a sense. They updated the keyboard with performance and other great goodies. Check out the log shown from Android Central below while I pull up the SDK and play!
UPDATE : Check out the Official Video on Gingerbread below…
Gingerbread is finally here, folks. Google has just released the SDK — that’s the software development kit, the building blocks for the OS.
We’re about to dive headfirst into this guy, but here are the big strokes:
- UI refinements
- Faster, better keyboard
- Better power management
- Task manager is easier to get to.
- Internet calling — SIP support!
- Near-field communications (NFC) for purchases and the like
- Better downloads management.
And that’s just the stuff for us end-users. There are a bunch of changes behind the scenes for developers. Stay tuned, folks. We’ll have more in a bit. [Android Developer Highlights]
