Earlier this week, Phandroid served up some mouthwatering details about Android 3.0, AKA Gingerbread, along with one (very lousy) screenshot. Now they've got a (very lousy) video clip that supposedly shows Gingerbread's turn-the-screen-off animation, and it is pretty damn cool.

Yup, just like you're turning off one of those old tube TVs. But more exciting than that single animation is what it suggests about the level of visual polish we can expect from Android 3.0. Very tasty indeed. [Phandroid]
