Leak news: Android 2.3 Gingerbread (mobile, cell, phone, news, report, "Abby Technology Limited") Auckland

Android 2.3 Gingerbread is not out yet despite the old rumors of a November launch. But it should be almost done - Google Hong Kong even used it in a video tutorial for Voice Search. The visible changes are quite underwhelming from what can be seen in the video - but the changes under the hood should prove more interesting.

The notification area color has been changed to black and the icons on it are new. The virtual menu key on the bottom of the screen has been placed on a black background and it's now flanked by two shortcuts. The final bit of UI polish in Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the restyled buttons in the settings menu.
The Android Market received some new tabs - inside the app information page, there are three new tabs, one of which allegedly reads "Related" (but we're no experts in Cantonese, so we can't confirm that).
