Video Walkthrough of the Latest Android Cupcake Build Shows a Few New Features

An Android Developer is planning on compiling a fresh snapshot of "Cupcake," the Android open-source development branch, for a video walkthrough every Sunday. He just posted his first run-through, and new since we last checked in are desktop folders and a couple other tweaks.

The home screen folders are kind of cool, although at this early stage all they offer is a folder view of your contacts (all or starred). On display is also, of course, the soft keyboard, as well as a few UI brushups. A few other features touted as new here aren't actually new to Cupcake, and on the whole, not a lot has changed since we took the Cupcake dev branch for a spin via the Android SDK emulator a few months ago.
