  1. Trust, there are significant performance shifts from 2.2 to 2.3. I have just downloaded the SDK and screwing up my current handset for 2.3. There are other differences which I have mentioned.

    However, you concern over the price is justified as there are handsets with 2.2 at the cost of 25 – 30K. Despite, there won’t be any major uprise in price of Nexus S as Google always kept Nexus range much competitive.

  2. Not really revolutionary for current casual/business oriented smartphone users, maybe apart from NFC support. Android 2.3’s major improvements are geared towards gamers. There’s also little perceptible changes between Froyo’s and Gingerbread’s UI. Anyhow I’d be interested to find out whether your prediction for the 21.5K price point holds true when it’s launched in India, I think it will be more expensive than that, since, spec-wise it’s almost identical to the Galaxy S, with the addition of a six-axis gyro and NFC chip. The Galaxy S costs 30K approx.
