Rumoured to be unveiled at Google’s I/O event, Android 2.3.4 -still Android Gingerbread- will make full use of the latest set of dual-camera packed Android phones, with a Google-made video-call service.
Based around your Gmail account, which, being an Android phone user, you’ll already have, you should be able to call anyone with a web-cam or camera-phone.
The majority of new phones announced so far this year have arrived with dual-cameras, like the HTC Desire S and the Nokia E7. Forthcoming phones with two cameras include the Samsung Galaxy S II, and LG Optimus 2X. (Some will arrive later this year with three, if we include the 3D-recording LG Optimus 3D.)
Android hasn’t yet got their hands on their own FaceTime rival. Third-party apps like Tango and Fring aren’t up to scratch just yet, and we’re still waiting for a video-enabled Skype on Android.
Google’s big event, I/O typically consists of a few speeches, some presentations to excite Google fans, and show off what they’ve been working on in the past year. There’s also a handful of surprises, so we’re looking forward to seeing what they have up their sleeves when the 10th May arrives.
