    One thing on my Evo that I think I will miss the most (I'm a sucker for style) is the fact that on the Evo, when I move homescreens, the background actually moves with it. So if you have a wider pic, and you're on the middle homescreen, you see the middle, and when you flick one way or the other, the portion of the pic you see moves slightly too. It makes for an awesome eyecandy.

    Can touchwiz do this? I've only seen the same background (both static and live) when people swipe between homescreens.

    I'll be sad. But here's to hoping that it can be in TouchWiz?

    Stupid question, how do you post a video. I've tried copying and pasting embed videos but that doesn't work, and I don't see anything in the tool bar for posting vids, just URL links.

    Thanks

    This is a basic feature of Android. All android phones have the ability to have a "moving wallpaper", the paper simply needs to the right dimensions. This is not to be confused with "Live wallpaper" though.

    Aaawwweeeessooooooooome.

    Thank you guys. All the demos I'd seen just showed a one-homescreen-wide background.

    Yay!

    PS -- that first review you posted was horrible, the only redeeming quality is that it demonstrates the moving background.

    Yeah, I would say that first review is the worst review I have ever seen, it would have been better if it turned out to be a rick-roll.
