    Interesting video...

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOGmnnGpoqg&feature=player_embedded[/ame]



    The Astonishing Tribe, the design firm that more or less defined the look and feel of Android the first time around, has built an entirely new homescreen interface for the OS, in 3D. It's alternately beautiful, gratuitous and bizarre. What you're seeing in the video is a recording of a live demo; TAT Home is a real piece of software, and one that I've seen in action on a handset before the concept was made public. My feeling now is the same as it was then: There's a lot of eye candy here, and some concepts that could definitely stick—I'm thinking about the homescreen switcher, in particular—though a lot of the widgets and concepts go a little overboard. What's exciting whether you like the UI concept or now, though, is how close it shows we are to full 3D cellphone interfaces, and how well current hardware could run them.
    TAT Home could end up as a standalone app, though I'd expect most of the adoption to come through carrier or handset maker partnerships; none have been announced yet, but don't be surprised if it hit the market under a different name, with a slightly different look.

    I think it's sharp. I like the message widget. I'll have to keep an eye out for this.

    Nice find.

    This is absolutely amazing. I wonder how the eye candy will affect performance.

    It was outstanding....

    It's definitely an exciting time to own an Android device. How it will will evolve is very exciting to me.

    Maybe if we could choose which features to change so we don't have to use the entire program. I would use just the messaging. Contacts looked a little odd to me.

    Wow! I Love it! How do I get that!

    Funny I just watched the extremely boring and uninspired Windows Mobile 7 video....and that TAT Home just made it look even more vanilla!

    that is actually impressive to me, and there's very little I'll claim is

    though, and I could easily be wrong, I'm thinking this may be something we need to wait until Dalvik Turbo is released for.
