I found this post on Engadget: T-Mobile is beginning to deliver the new version to phones. To my knowledge, I haven’t gotten the update yet — my phone hasn’t asked me to update.
The new version was announced at April 27th at the Google Developer’s blog. In digging around, one of the things that I noticed was that the system image delivered with the SDK includes a video camera application. I finally found the release features here.
Here are some of the features that caught my eye:
- Refinement of all core UI elements — looking better is always good in my book
- Accelerometer-based application rotations — I have a couple of games that use the Accelerometer so I know it works. It will be nice to have more applications that use it!
- Faster Camera start-up and image capture — The camera is horribly slow to capture pictures
- Video recording — This will be cool
