New look for the Android 1.5 UI

After announcing the early-look Android 1.5 SDK on Monday, the Android Dev Team has now unveiled some UI framework changes that come with the new version of Google’s open source mobile platform. 

Android designers spent a lot of time to “refine and polish” the appearance of the OS.

For example, checkboxes and buttons now have a new look.

The images below illustrate the difference between Android 1.1 and Android 1.5 (v 1.1 appears in the screenshots on the left):

Of course, Android 1.5 is not yet ready for being installed on your smartphone, but developers can download the SDK from here and check out its fresh appearance.
