Froyo feature: USB Mass Storage tweaks

Android 2.2. Froyo USB Mass Storage Mount

Connecting your Android phone to your computer to use it as a mass storage device isn't new, and we've detailed how and why you'd want to do it. But in Froyo, it gets a little more friendly. Gone is the bland pop-up announcement that you're connecting your phone. Actually, it's still there, but first you get the friendly little robot you see above, explaining in plain English what you're about to do. Mount the phone, and he turns orange. Unmount, and it's back to green. A nice touch, and it makes it easy to see at a glance if you're connected.
