Gizmodo Breaks Down Android 2.3

They look at the five features that have them excited for the latest version of Google’s Android OS.  Unfortunately, this is the pure version and by the time it gets pushed out to your phone, the carriers and handset makers will have their way with it.

The Android UI in Gingerbread isn’t vastly overhauled, but aesthetically, it’s being tugged in a quirkier, nerdier pseudo-80s direction: Lots more “Android green” and orange on black, with a flatter, two dimensional feel to system graphics. Fun! How’s it better for users? Well, the notifications bar is revamped, there’s faster shortcuts to the task manager, options and a new system-wide downloads manager.

To be honest, I didn’t see that much difference in phone between 2.1 and 2.2, so I’m not really getting too excited about this.
