Some new details concerning Google’s Android version 3.0 OS, AKA Gingerbread, have leaked online, courtesy of the Phandroid blog.

Apart from the mandatory visual tweaks, the big draw looks to be video-calling headed to the open-source OS. VoIP features will also be added to the Google Voice app, though it’s not expected to launch with the arrival of Gingerbread itself, but instead with an over-the-air update a little way down the line.

In terms of aesthetics, Gingerbread is apparently looking more cohesive than it’s Froyo predeccesor. Icons have a more uniform look, the notification bar has been improved and is now easier on the eye, scrolling effects similar to the iOS bounce-back effect have been added, as well as liberally washes of green hues across the entire package.

Gingerbread was initially expected to land before the end of the year, but that’s looking unlikely now. Expect more details on Android 3.0 to come officially from Google early in the new year.
