G2 Classic redesign:


There's a subtle front camera on the edge of the upper speaker, like the Xperia X1.









3D swiping with blur



2D swiping with blur



Homescreen Icon Animation








NB - Changing the Trackball to the Nub was very exhausting so I only did it on a selected few cover images.



I firmly believe these changes should be implemented for the G2 to at least have a chance against next year's iPhone HD (a reasonable prediction) as well as the highly anticipated WM7 Tegra-equipped phone offerings.


Hardware additions:

1) Tilting screen (a must for watching movies, live TV... etc, and a big upperhand over the iPhone as well)
e.g. http://img171.imageshack.us/my.php?i...ntilteddv3.jpg
e.g. http://img243.imageshack.us/my.php?i...ltingg2pi4.jpg
2) Subtle front camera on the edge of the speaker. (like the X1's cam, for waving hand gesture control software, and video chats)
3) 3.5 headphone jack e.g. http://img353.imageshack.us/img353/2...headsetzw0.jpg
4) TV out
5) Dedicated Lock/Unlock side switch (like the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic "Tube")
6) Face sensor (turns off screen to save power during calls, like the Nokia "Tube")


Hardware Improvements: e.g. http://img381.imageshack.us/my.php?i...lsqwertnh2.jpg

1) Screen resolution 800×480 or 800x600 (no quality drop with DVDrips)
2) A compete design overhaul e.g. http://img122.imageshack.us/my.php?i...remierenp3.jpg OR keep the classic G2 basic geek look with a smaller, less protruding "chin" piece with no angle transition (flat phone, please) and a bigger screen (see next point).
3) A bigger, flush screen that fills the sliding part front (dead space makes the G1 appear to be ugly, as opposed to the Touch HD's minimal dead space on the front)
4) Ultra low-power Tegra-like processor (GPU+CPU) capable of seemlessly handling OpenGL ES 2.0 gfx effects, transitions, and lengthy HD playback e.g.
5) More inward travel with keyboard key strokes
6) More responsive/sensitive compass
7) 5MP camera with flash
8) OLED screen (OLED displays appear brighter and sharper than LCDs, even when viewed at an angle. They are viewable in sunlight. And as a side benefit of ditching the LCD backlight, OLEDs are battery thrifty. OLED screens refresh faster, so they're better at displaying video.)
9) A one-touch Omni-directional Nub instead of the Trackball (you can't constantly hold down a direction on the trackball. Much better for web scrolling, ESSENTIAL for gaming) e.g. http://img523.imageshack.us/my.php?image=g1g2newym3.jpg

Browser:

1) Java V8 implementation for faster page rendering (Chrome Java language)
2) Tabs instead of Windows (like Chrome, easier to switch/open a new tab)
3) Smoother scrolling/zooming, multitouch drivers.
4) More on-screen controls, PLEASE, at least on touch and a few seconds after: e.g. http://img407.imageshack.us/my.php?i...2chromoym0.jpg
a) "Back" & "Forward" (which bring a swipable "cover flow view" for history pages when you hold either of them)
b) "Refresh"
c) "Stop"
d) "OPEN NEW TAB"
e) "Bring on-screen QWERTY"
f) "Bookmarks" (which also bookmarks a page if held down)
... and no need for an address bar
5) Flash and Silverlight support.
6) Ability to have Googled words available on a bar to easily jump to on a page (like Firefox, not Chrome)
7) Browser Widget support (like Opera Mobile recently)


Maps:

1) Full Google Earth with smooth Open GL ES 2.0 rendering support (with all overlays available including 3D buildings, and Panoramic "Street" View as an embedded overlay, not a separate mode)
2) "Live Mode" addition (http://www.enkin.net)


Other:

1) Full Bluetooth 2.1/3.0 capability out of the box
2) App installation possible on memory card.
3) Multiple video codec support out of the box (notably: xvid, divx)
4) All icons are, actually, really small widgets i.e. they update with new notifications e.g. Google Reader icon on http://img249.imageshack.us/my.php?i...desktopuz7.jpg , the "Gallery" icon shows miniature existing images and stills from the user's gallery, some icons are minimized widgets that expand and blur the background when clicked... etc. e.g. http://img220.imageshack.us/my.php?i...imationlc1.jpg
5) Holding down the "Home" button zooms out to bring a "Panels" view of all the windows of the currently running programs like the X1 e.g. http://img522.imageshack.us/my.php?i...2panelsrg9.jpg , or a scrollable "Carousel" view like the Tegra UI[/I].
6) Multilingual on-screen keyboard (Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, Farsi, Flemish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Urdu...etc)
7) Screen orientation changes according to the Accelerometer, regardless the status of the slide-out keyboard.
8) Pressing the "menu" button brings up an attractive semi-transparent Blackberry Storm-like menu overlay with illustrations and a 1-word description on each button, instead of the ugly, opaque, irregular menu of the G1 e.g. http://img440.imageshack.us/my.php?i...ignmenump0.jpg
9) Customizable camera hand gestures e.g. waving hand sideways at homescreen shifts between the 3 desktops, waving the hand downwards always pulls down the status bar, waving the hand upwards brings you back to the homescreen (these gestures are used for scrolling when on the ChroMo browser).


WoW factor:

1) OpenGL ES 2.0 3D homescreen animations, like having the 3 homescreens laid out on a rotating triangular prism e.g. http://img227.imageshack.us/my.php?i...ingg2hdms7.jpg
2) OpenGL ES 2.0 media players effects e.g. http://www.tat.se/images/demo/part123.mov
3) OpenGL ES 2.0 browser effects with easy navigation of web pages, with full previews, zooming, and categorized headers e.g http://www.tat.se/images/demo/Browser.mov
4) Google's "G" logo on the back that lights when the phone is on, flashes when receiving a call/notification, slightly fades with low battery.


Welcomed improvements:

1) Slimmer phone (G1's not thick, but it's not thin either. It's possible as Tegra is a smaller processor, low-power, requires less battery juice, and the same can be said about the OLED screen)

Wallpaper:

Tegra is the only processor capable of running Google Earth on a Mobile platform. It's now linked to Windows Mobile 7, but being a member in the OHA, I doubt NVidia will leave Android burn without a similar chipset.

I did it on Photoshop to show what I'd like to see as the G2.

It also has a video cam on the edge of the speaker
