Among all of the new awesome additions of Android 2.1 is the genie widgets and the 3D gallery. Now you can enjoy both on you 2.0 phones and you can even run the Genie widgets on your 1.6 donut device. All you have to do is scan the QR Code and enjoy. More after the break.

This news has been around for awhile but it is seldom seen around the net. I have tried the 2.1 gallery on my G1 and it works but it performs really really slow. The Genie Widgets on the other hand performs brilliantly. Click here if you would like to give the gallery a whirl. I’m not sure if you need root to use these, I’m pretty sure you don’t but report back and let us know how you like these welcome upgrades to your phone.
