It has a highly custamisable ui

Ui is very near to the palms web os

The icons will be in the shape of cuboid.

You can even change the notification bar colour.

Notification bar icons can also be changed.

Coming to the browser,gingerbreads browser will have more speed than froyo.

The browser supports add-ons.

There will be tabbed browsing.

The keyboard will also change fully

They said we can type faster than swype with that.

Every icon changes.

It brings us never seen before clous services.

it improves the battery life very much.

You messed up at the end, Google will never add a task killer, Android already handles memory and tasks better than just about all other mobile OSes, why add something that will mess things up more than any good it could do?
Actually, I believe 2.1+ have a task killer built in, just the GUI is somewhat a pain and it isn't easily accessed (and completely unnecessary). The rest sorta makes sense, except the web os thing.. i don't know how web os is for use, never used one of those phones, but I'd venture a guess to say.. unlimited homescreens + looping? Maybe. I dunno.

It will also include a feature that automatically hacks all iPhones within 50 metres.

uuhh, I cannot imagine that that will look nice. Edged 3D- or bevelled- objects in GUI design are kind of outdated and unfashionable these days. I fear that google might over-do the GUI design by falling prey to showing off 3D effects.
I am a big fan of 3D effects but nonetheless hope that the new design won't be too edgy.

>> You can even change the notification bar colour.
lets hope that that includes setting alpha transparency. The mono-colored notification bar in the current Android OS cannot compete with the fresh look of the iOS4 notification bar.

Other than that, the feature list really looks delicious.

I hope that that come up with a lightning quick way of app switching. Perhaps even an option to always leave a ribbon of 20 pixels at the bottom of the screen holding the icons of the previously opened apps.

If this article has any weight to it, we could be looking at early 2011. Apparently LG is blaming delays in Google finishing the gingerbread source for their delays in the tablet.

It appears that the delay for LG's inaugural Android tablet device, which was originally planned for the fourth quarter of this year, might not be entirely LG's fault. A story out of Korea by Yonhap News Agency quotes two LG officials regarding the LG tablet delay, and hints that the source of the delay could very well be Google and the upcoming Gingerbread version of its Android smartphone OS.

Google had said in the past that the Gingerbread release of the OS was scheduled for late 2010, but we've heard some rummblings that it won't launch until 2011 now, possibly waiting for one of the large trade shows, such as CES or Mobile World Congress. An LG spokesperson said the following regarding the tablet, hinting at an external delay that could be Gingerbread:

"We want to make sure that the operating system is exactly suitable with our tablet. We have always said that the fourth quarter is our target, but we realized that the decision is not just up to us."
An anonymous quote attributed to an LG executive seems to back that up, saying "LG initially looked at Gingerbread [but] the timing for the release is uncertain." This seems to suggests that LG had planned to use Gingerbread from the start.

Google, for its part, has said quite directly that Android 2.2 Froyo is not designed for tablets. Considering that we've heard talk of delays for tablets coming from Acer and Motorola, as well, Gingerbread could be the common thread. Samsung, for its part, is using the widely deployed 2.2 Froyo release of Android.

Sorry, I'm not cool enough yet to link to the article, so I just pasted it in quote form. But it is listed as cite_note-53 on wikipedia's android os article.

Well the "faster than swype" typing is true as google recently acquired blind type. So, I guess we have a credible source. Good news!

The list was seemingly plausible until...

I lol'd.

Both seem plausible to me. It already has the task killer, and as the platform grows, viruses are inevitable. Already been a few "scares".

In fact, this whole list seems plausible to me, and nice. Browser also needs better syncing with desktop chrome.
