    I tried to post it to youtube first, it "was rejected because it's longer than 10 minutes."

    Great video. I hope they keep coming. Talk about monotone...sheesh I nearly went to sleep.

    But the features were interesting.

    Sorry, I was extremely tired when I threw the video together. It will be improved next time, still trying to figure out how to record the screen the best and such.

    Devolio! That was you! Cool. Ask Rob how he did some of his early videos they were great.

    I would suggest a dark room and brightness all the way up on the device. More light is always better when shooting video.

    The browser zoom in this video looks the same as in RC33. But if you look at the Vodafone HTC Magic demo (Vodafone HTC Magic Video Review), that browser has a new circular zoom control (instead of the plus and minus buttons). Where did the circular zoom control come from, any ideas?

    Ahh, just another reason I shouldn't have uploaded it when I was so tired. :)

    There was a huge merge that happened over the weekend, so I'll start playing with it tonight. Perhaps the circular zoom will be in this build, I'll report back tomorrow.

    Nice run-down! If you're looking to improve quality, a lot of people shoot in the dark. The backlight tends to be enough for the camera.

    I'm running RC33 and as previous posters have pointed out, the browser zoom is included. Also, the home-button screen flip (between the three home screens) that you mentioned in the beginning of the video is in RC33.

    However, I did notice something new in the video that you didnt touch on: when you were in the security menu, there was a new option for unlocking the phone- tactile pattern. Any way you might be able to test it out and give us the scoop on that? :)

    Other than that, good intel on the upcoming build! Certainly gives us junkies lots of stuff to look forward to, keep it coming!

    @dev and rob - congrats on gizmodo picking it up

    @kusotare - Currently we have unlock an option for "unlock pattern" I wonder if tactile unlock is a series of "shakes" up, up, down, down, left, right, left right?

    That would solve the issue some people complain about regarding the pattern your finger leaves on the screen.
