VIDEO: Early look at Donut Android Market, Quick Search, and Camera app

What’s new in Donut? Well, look for yourself. Below are three videos showing a few new features that you’ll find once the Android team and carriers deliver Android 1.6 (Donut) in an over-the-air update. The videos showcase the new Android Market, which includes screenshots and a revamped interface; a tweaked camera/camcorder interface; and the new Quick Search box, a near-universal search bar that searches both the web and content stored on your phone.

I’m able to access these features because they are built into the Cynanogen modded version of Android available to root users. As I mentioned in a previous story announcing the availability of the Android SDK, it remains to be seen when standard phones will receive the update.
