Android 2.3 Spotted In Hong Kong

David Gilbert


We’re sure that people around the world are getting fed up of Google’s constant teasing of the Android 2.3 update supposedly called (but not confirmed) Gingerbread. Well it’s at it again with the release/leak of an official Google Hong Kong video showing off voice search on the updated OS.

The video is in Cantonese and we can’t really follow what is going on other than it is showing off a new Google Voice Search application. The phone in use is apparently a Nexus One and we get a few brief glimpses of what the update may bring us in terms of visuals. Other than this we have only glimpsed Gingerbread for the briefest of seconds a few weeks back when Google head honcho Eric Schmidt showed off a Google Nexus S running Android 2.3.

Schmidt did tell us at the Web Summit 2.0 that Gingerbread would be with us in a couple of weeks time though we’ve heard nothing since. The video mostly shows off cosmetic changes, which look smart enough including a third tab in Market now, which is for related applications.

Here’s the video for you to make up your own mind but we will be hoping that when the update is released after all this build up we will get more than what is on show here.
