Cupcake Orientation Animation


The latest build of Android was put through the paces on CTIA-eve on a Vodafone branded HTC Magic. In leiu of Joey’s Cupcake Sunday we figured we should bring you some sort of video and while it’s not much, we’ve got a 13-second video showing off Android’s new Orientation Animation:

The orientation detection seems slow, but supposedly improvements are being made. Other updates include the virtual keyboard now with emoticons. There were a few other minor changes as well and you can head on over to MobileCrunch to check them out… but the video is the exciting part if you care to go that far.
