Particle Ring Boot Animation for Shiny Justice

XDA Developers love to tinker with their Android phones and publish their results. And this one is one of my favorites. XDA user "Aph" has taken a cool particle ring animation he found in another thread and has tweeked the CM7 boot animation to make it really smooth. The result is our favorite little robot standing in a ring of plasma energy.

Honeycomb for Dell Streak 5 ROM shows early promise

Dell's record releasing firmware for the original 5-inch Streak hasn't been all that hot, so thankfully there are unofficial firmware developers pushing out their own interpretations of what the tablet/smartphone hybrid should run. MoDaCo member Stephen Hyde has delivered the first build of Android 3.0 Honeycomb on the Streak, a very early work-in-progress but certainly more than we expect Dell itself to deliver. Most impressive is that the Streak 5 Honeycomb install was done in a spare evening, hacking up the Android 3.0 SDK and dropping it onto the tablet. Right now the touchscreen isn't doing quite what it should, and since there's no hardware acceleration the 3D graphics are slow, but we're expecting that with a bit more time this could turn out to be quite a popular ROM.
