Android Gingerbread

Remember that really blurry picture that reportedly shows Gingerbread? It hasn't gotten any clearer, but now it's moving. Phandroid has the video it apparently was ripped from, and it shows a pretty cool old-school TV-like blinking of the screen when you press the power button. Check it out after the break. [Phandroid]

That's awesome. I had to watch it to figure out what you meant by "blinking of the screen." Now I understand, and that's a cool effect.

I should also note that I love the Live wallpapers, and the one in the video was nifty.

Thats the Nexus or "Neural Network" live wallpaper thats on most Android phones.

dskwerl says:

I have the Epic, and mine doesn't have that one.

You can download one from the market called nexus lwp revamped that recreates the effect, with more color options and what not

dskwerl says:

Sweet, thanks. I'm going to check that out.

SomEngangVar says:

Seriously? Is it really that hard to get a camera to focus? Or hit a light switch?

Im pretty sure most Blurry Videos/Pics are very intentional

vinny#AC says:

Was that also being shown on the best device still to date, The Nexus One? I will never give up my Nexus One, happy owner of the G2, but will always keep my Nexus on my desk sitting in it's charging dock, streaming music to my boss stereo. Use it every day. I have not found another phone that feels as good in the hand as the Nexus One. I guess you have to have owned one to understand. The G2 isn't a bad device either. Have mine over clocked to around 1400. The G2 is fast out of the box but holy shit, this thing is just really sick fast. YIKES.

One of my gripes about Android has been holding the power button... pressing Power Off... Then pressing ok.

Now that I think about it there must be some other way to quicken the shut down process.

in b4 "Why do you have to shut your phone down so often anyway!!!!" -- I travel a lot.

I think this animation is for just turning the screen on and off.

what's awesome is whether or not this is really gingerbread, you know the devs will have this in an apk before long. :)

Thats video is such bad quality. Must have been filmed on an iphone 4 :P

Go Android! says:

Burn! Lmao

stact13 says:

Though I will never support Apple and the iPhone 4, my friend has one and I saw him taking pictures and videos today. Though my DInc's 8MP beastly camera is great, the Jesus Phone's camera is pretty epic. About equivilent to the Nexus One's, actually.
Don't diss it till you try it. But don't support it, either.

StuRoid says:

I wonder how many of these little things HTC will port over to their Sense devices? This looks cool but somehow I don't think they will put this into their updates unless there is something else connected to it like speeding up the shut down or if it's just a bit of eye candy...

Go Android! says:

Do people purposely shake the camera and turn off the lights to make these videos?

I think the answer is yes. I think the deeper you go with things that haven't been seen before, the more intentional the BLUR is

I think it might also have something to do with people not wanting to be identified and fired.

hydro says:

in late 2010, how the hell do you even get a video to record in such ass quality? ive seen knock off chinese products have better quality in 2001.

It's only a 10 second video, but it didnt look too much different than Froyo to me.

I thought Gingerbread was supposed to change the overall look of the OS
