If the recently leaked pics of Google’s next iteration of Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich didn’t quite “wow” you the way you thought it would, I figured I’d ad a little sunshine to your day by showing you a UI that might. It’s called MIUI and recently the ROM has been updated to now allow for completely themeable lockscreens complete with moving parts and backgrounds. Exactly what some developers have been coming up with is nothing short of stunning and it’s a testament to the versatility of MIUI. Just take a look at this video and watch the beauty and splendor of MIUI’s theme engine. (Protip: Turn your speakers UP)
As seen towards the end of the video is h_zee13’s Colors theme which has a distinctly wonderful “Google feel” to it. Honestly, I have to admit, seeing those leaked images of Ice Cream Sandwich was a bit of a let down. But here’s some food for thought, if Ice Cream Sandwich adds an open and versatile themeing engine (similar to what we see on CM7 and MIUI) just think of all the wonderful things the Android community can think up. Wouldn’t matter if Ice Cream Sandwich looked like MS DOS. And that friends, is the true power of Android — its awesome developer community.
