    Default Android 2.3 Gingerbread

    The Android dev team just made the latest version of the mobile platform official. Following Google's alphabetic-dessert naming convention Android 2.3 is called Gingerbread. The new version of the OS brings a host of cool new features as well as extended API support, improved performance and improved power management.
    Android smartphones are frequently criticized for poor battery management so Google acted up and tried to fix that with Gingerbread. The system will now take a more active role in managing, closing them if appropriate to ensure better performance and maximum battery life.
    Text selection has also been improved, making it easier for Android users to mark, copy and paste text when web browsing or texting. The standard organizer package has been updated too, though the dev team stays mum on the details.
    Other end-user features supported by Android Gingerbread include Internet calling, through SIP, NFC (Near Field Communication) support and improved camera interface. The download manager has also been improved and there is now a single app that gives you an aggregated view of all your downloads (be they through email, web browser, or another app).
    As usually there's also a bunch of new developers features that might not have instant effect but should lead to higher-quality apps arriving to the Android Market shortly. Enhancements are mainly connected with gaming (where better performance and sensor management, among other things are promised) and multimedia (with audio effect, extended codec support and access to the front-facing camera for third-party apps).

    The first two handsets to run Android Gingerbread are the just announced Nexus S and the Nexus One, which should be updated in a few weeks time.

    YESSSSSSSSSS!

    Samsung Galaxy S receives Gingerbread port right from the Nexus S source


    Hold on to your hats, people, there's a wind of awesomeness coming through. The Nexus S is no longer the only Gingerbread game in town, courtesy of supercurio over on the xda-developers forum, who has ported the hot new phone's Android 2.3 install over to its Samsung forefather, the Galaxy S. The port is described as being unmodified from the Nexus S original, although quite a few basic functions like voice, WiFi, and GPS (insert joke about Galaxy S GPS woes) aren't yet operational. All the same, we agree with supercurio that it's looking "super smooth" and look forward to seeing him and the rest of the xda crew polish this stock Android baby off in short order.

    Ce cartier tati? N-ai zis ca esti la tara, la sorici si friptane?

    Cu ROM stock Eclair acuratetea era ~10 m, cu Froyo ~5-6m iar cu ROM modat ~1-2 metri. Problema, se pare, e ca dezvoltatorii Samsung suck big time. Driverele AOSP de la Gogu sunt mult mai performante dar customizarile facute de Samsuck le strica.

    The Android Open Source Project today released the source code for Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The code is made available for anyone to use, and allows those familiar with code the opportunity to make tweaks and modifications to the base behavior of Android.

    Este foarte corect. L-am testat un weekend pe o ruta de 350km cu iGo si Aura. Merge super bine. Nici n-am stiut ca avut probleme. Eu l-am luat de 3 zile si a venit cu v2.2 FROYO.XFJP7.
