More Android 2.1 Screens From Nexus One

Some new screenshots are up on Phandroid.. and one screen showing some of the available animated wallpapers.

The revamped media gallery is also pretty cool, I like the stacked picture previews.

And I can't wait to see the "3D revolving music visualizers" in action!

3D Movies & Gaming

One of Sony's "pilars" for 2010 will be focused on bringing 3D visuals for home entertainment.

Yesterday, the Blu-ray Disc Association reported that the 3D Blu-ray specs have been finalized.

"The Blu-ray 3-D specification allows PS3 game consoles to play back Blu-ray 3-D content in 3-D. The specification also supports 2-D discs in upcoming 3-D players and allows 2-D playback of Blu-ray 3-D discs on the large installed base of Blu-ray Disc players.

The Blu-ray 3D specification calls for encoding 3D video using the Multiview Video Coding (MVC) codec, an extension to the ITU-T H.264 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) codec currently supported by all Blu-ray Disc players."

Only downside is that you'll probably have to buy a new TV. Or maybe not.

The Nexus One

HTC Passion.. Google Phone... who cares... next Android OS is looking pretty sweet!

New hardware features include proximity sensor & FM radio. I wonder what the proximity sensor is used for?

Hopefully heading to Europe too.

Early 2010.

(PS. Please let it be unlocked, I don't want any provider deciding what and when to upgrade! My Proximus Magic has not received a single official HTC update, most likely because Proximus does not care about hardware & software.)
