One of the greatest things about Android is that any company can tweak, modify, or add to the open-source of Android. We've seen both HTC and Motorola do some really great things with that freedom and we're certain that more companies will dabble in the customization. Case in point: Larva Labs just showed a concept that'll give Android a "Intelligent Home Screen" a la Windows Mobile's Today Screen.

The "Intelligent Home Screen" allows Android users to filter through personal items and general items. In a demo of the "Intelligent Home Screen" we see that personal items such as SMS, e-mails, phone calls are loaded on the top portion of the screen and general items like RSS feeds are shown on the bottom of the screen. The two categories are separated by a date and time bar. The entire interface is customizable--you can choose how many personal items or general items to display, you can choose font size, and even what is shown.

The "Intelligent Home Screen" would be a welcome addition to Android because the concept of a Today Screen is so useful in day-to-day usage. Though Larva Labs' Intelligent Home Screen is only in concept form, we're pretty sure once this is available to Android users, it's going to be a hit. What do you guys think?

Nice. I can see it being of benefit, especially if one uses the device for business. It's not for me; my phone is purely for pleasure. Not much "intelligence" needed here :-)

I would imagine it would be a big feather in Android's cap to draw Windows Mobile users who are used to a home/today screen.
