So the strangest thing about this is that Google officially released a video of the Gingerbread UI, without realising it. It actually made it a whole week before anyone really noticed. The video in question was meant to be walk-through of Google’s new voice search. Th walk-through covers the feature on a number of different devices, and one of them is an Android device with a green and black UI; Gingerbread! Google promptly took down the video once they realised what they had done (Doh!), but it had thankfully made its way elsewhere and is thoroughly mirrored.

I have to be honest when I say that I’m not overly impressed with the adjustments I’ve seen in the video. If you would like to see a few more screenshots, follow this link, where you can see some actual screen-captures along with some well edited video stills.
