Google posted a YouTube video exposing the Google Video Search in Cantonese in Android 2.3 and raised quite a ruckus.

The video, surfaced by the Android Police blog, apparently didn't garner much attention at first. There's probably a good reason for that: The video doesn't show you much.

Here's the video:

The upshot: There are probably performance enhancements under the hood for Gingerbread. I'd bet that most of Google's time is focused on Android 3.0. That's what Nvidia has said about Android 3.0---the version that could create a real iPad rival on the tablet front.

    Can any one translate the Chinese ?

    Most of us don't know Chinese... English subtitle/footnote will be appreciated.

      It has more to do with google searching abilities than phone especially in the second half of the video. He uses voice search commands to search for something and in the same sentence, instructs google search to present the photo of what he is searching. Then he does a similar search but tells it to present the result as a map. And then basically a whole lot of stuff that you would normally do on destop search. He also mixes english words with chinese to demonstrate it has language sense. My sense is that they are trying to highlight less keyboard interaction.

    It's nothing new here. It's just essentially an intro for Voice Search, only in cantonese.

    That is not impressive at all. Google just needs to stop wasting their time, accept defeat and shut down operations.
