Android 2.3 Gingerbread Caught on Camera, Then Gone (Video)

Google’s Hong Kong branch recently released an official video showing the features of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it was quickly taken down from YouTube. Fortunately, Engadget is here to save the day and they’ve republished the clip, for you all to see. Basically, this video shows off the Cantonese Voice Search on the platform.

However, this demonstration is based on the Android 2.3 software, that could be accidentally included in this promo. Last time we saw Gingerbread, it was running on Eric Schmidt’s handset and now the OS seems to be running on a Nexus One, or related handset. Nothing much to say about the update, aside from the fact that it includes a tweaked launcher bar at the bottom of the home screen.

Also, its Settings include restyled buttons and the Market app’s description page features a new tab called “Related”, that will aid you with the app choice. If you find something else that’s new in the video below, be sure to post in the Comments section.
