Latest Cupcake Screenshots and Features

Current G1 owners are salivating over some of the expected changes in the Cupcake branch of Android.  From little stuff like animations and bug fixes to bigger things like the on-screen keyboard, people are eager to get their hands on the new Android hotness.

Our friends over at IntoMobile have done some sniffing around and put together a new bullet-point list of features to expect out of Cupcake. Whether any or all of these actually end up on the G1 might still be up for debate.  Assuming the worst, and none of the features make it, at least the G2 and future handsets will see them.  Last we heard, that’s coming up in May.

  1. New Local Setting Page
  2. New Option to view running and third party application
  3. New windows opening/closing animation effect
  4. New default notepad
  5. New Global Time application
  6. New Spare Parts Application
  7. New Virtual Keyboard
  8. Slightly better looking buttons with more shadow.

Below is a pair of images we pulled from the IntoMobile article.  Head over to the original post to see the other five pics. Thanks Simon!
