    New article on Engadget shows some photos of the Nexus (GPhone) running Android 2.1

    Some of the noticable features include a home screen mini-preview feature. You press a button and get a small preview of all of the home screens, I would also assume you can tap them for a direct shortcut to a particular screen. There seems to be 5 screens now, me likey. Also appears to have animated wallpaper, the one shown has randon colored "light beams" moving across it, cool!


    No one knows if these features will show up on 2.1 but it looks promising, Full article is here.. Exclusive: first Google Phone / Nexus One photos, Android 2.1 on-board -- Engadget

    2.1, yeah baby!!
