Google hasn't shared much information about Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and Ice Cream, but details about future versions of Android are beginning to slip out.
According to an Android fan site called Phandroid, a source close to Google has provided a peek at what is in store for the Gingerbread version of Android.

The first and most noticeable change to the operating system is that the graphics and icons have been refreshed. Based on a screen shot acquired by Phandroid, the application icons have a more uniform appearance and provides for a cleaner look to the operating system.


Earlier this year, Google hired webOS designer Matias Duarte away from Palm. He was placed in charge of Android's user interface team, and the assumption is that he was brought on board to improve the look, and feel of Android. The early screen shots seem to confirm that assumption.

Beyond new icons and graphics, the user interface exhibits more colors -- notably Android green -- as well as an enlarged notification drawer with carrier branding more prominent. The refreshed UI also introduces kinetic scrolling to longer menus and adds animations.
