Android Has a Sweet New Circular Zoom -- VIDEO

Présentation vidéo du HTC Magic, le téléphone sous Google Android de SFR

Some new Android features have been spotted and well, they look pretty darn sweet.

First off, the new circular zoom feature. CNET France has gotten on video the new zoom feature that looks to replace the ol' plus/minus icon process. To initiate the zoom, double tap the screen and a onscreen wheel will pop up for zoom purposes. In the video, it details circular zooming in photos and web browsing. Though this is surely a roundabout way to zoom (when compared to multi-touch at least) it certainly seems more fluid than the current setup. Fast forward to 2:05 in the video to check it out.

We also get a peek at the video recording capabilities on Android (at the 2:25 mark) which shows basic controls and the ability to share the video through Gmail, SMS, or upload directly to Youtube.

Though these features were shown off on a HTC Magic, we're pretty sure they'll eventually pop up in Android. So, what do you guys think? Circular zoom for the win?
