    Insider sources have supposedly shared secret details about Google's future plans for Android. According to this latest intel, Android will eventually evolve into something called Quantum Paper. This concept is basically a unified interface for all of their apps and services across all computing platforms. This includes their apps and services on Android, iOS, Windows Phone and any other platform.

    The primary goal will make the user experience the same across any platform. The pic above shows off what is supposedly Gmail with the Quantum Paper concept. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    Intriguing. What do you guys think of this very Googley idea?

    I've heard rumor of this from another site. I'm not sure if this is true, but it seems that the look and feel will not be responsive across domains; it would always be tailored towards mobile (or touch) development. Someone noticed this in the picture shown above, where the side menu is normally just a phone/tablet item and not something shown on a PC. This could just be early development shots and those issues will be worked out later.

    If a lot of people use Google products across multiple devices, I think it's something worth trying. My company uses Gmail and other related Google services, so I'm curious if this is something that will eventually cross over to the business platform or not.

    Speaking only for android, I would say it is about time for a 'big' UI redesign. I'm for something for graphically intensive and cool to look at / play with, however I sense that google might be going for an even more 'refined' simpler look with minimalstic fonts and popping colors.

    What do you mean "change the game"? The G3 is my choice but it's not that much different than the S5.
