After the announcement of Android 2.2 and all of the great features we’d be getting with it, we found it hard to come up with more useful features that would take Android even further. It looks like Google’s satisfied with the functionality side of things, too, as now they’re going to be working very heavily overhauling the user experience.

This move isn’t only something Google’s wanted to do since Android 1.0 was released, it’s something they hope will continue to cut down on fragmentation by providing a default skin and enhanced core functionality that their manufacturing partners will be proud to adopt (as TechCrunch describes it, it will essentially make the need for custom skins “pointless”).

All of this will be coming with Gingerbread, but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves: we still have yet to finish our bowl of Froyo.
