Google inadvertently shows off bits of Gingerbread

December 2, 2010: 3:50 PM ET

A Cantonese language video tutorial for Google Voice uses the next generation OS.

On November 23rd, the GoogleinHK YouTube account posted a video walkthrough of the new Google (GOOG) Voice Search with a device with the tell-tale Green icons.  That is Gingerbread.

While it is difficult to discern anything new notable features, viewers get a preview of the 'greener' interface refinements.

Google is expected to reveal the new version of the Android OS at an event later this month.

Update: Google has removed the video from YouTube but Engadget was nice enough to grab some screenshots (below):

Not Gingerbread (notice no green bars)
