Let us look at what are the key enhancements in this Android 2.3.3 version:

–          Increased speed

–          Menu with new improved look

–          Dock with three customizable icons; Phone dialer, Email and Text messaging to put whatever you like (swap with a long press)

–          Enhanced App Drawer allows you to customize group of Apps. You can make group of icons excluding all the VCAST stuff that’s on the phone and maybe the stub apps for NFS Shift and Madden 2011.

–          Simple and safe way to get the bloatware out of sigh, if you don’t root and kill unwanted apps.

The official release of Gingerbread is expected to be a month away. But you can give it a shot if you can’t wait for the over-the-air update.

But be sure that to root your device as this is an unofficial release.
