If you haven’t already noticed by now, Android.com has gotten an overhaul. It makes the site more inviting and user friendly, giving users a rundown of Android and its market ecosystem. Platform features are highlighted in an aesthetically pleasing way but there isn’t much here we don’t already know… except for one thing. At the bottom right of the site is a little Android robot and hovering your mouse over it makes it do interesting things. It can wave, it can do the moonwalk, it can juggle and more. The most interesting are the series of semaphore flag signals it shows. It spells out “Adroid” (no typo) but were not sure where the”n” is. I’ll leave you to find out what else it can do over at Android.com. [via 4android.ru]
