Android Gingerbread Update: Features List?

Today could be the day that Android Gingerbread is announced. Google Vice President Andy Rubin is speaking at the conference today, and is expected to announce Android Gingerbread.
Rumors are abound that Gingerbread will also launch with NFC (Near Field Communication) on board, which allows two devices to communicate at short range via a high-frequency transmission.
Gingerbread is said to boast a streamlined, simplified UI with a feel similar to the Android 2.2 Gallery application.

What is the list of features included in the new Android Gingerbread update?

Android 2.3, the "Gingerbread" update to Google's smartphone platform, is shipping first on the new Nexus S from Samsung, which Google partnered in designing.

New features in Gingerbread include user interface refinements, NFC support, "a new keyboard and text selection tool", improved copy-paste functionality and built-in VoIP calling. Developers can adapt their apps for these features using the new Android software development kit.

I'm impressed about the faster, better keyboard. The new Android Gingerbread also has better power management, the task manager is easier to get to and better downloads management.

The details about Android Gingerbread 2.3 were posted on the Android Developers site early Monday morning. Here's the official video detailing Android Gingerbread's new features:
