Oh Dirty, starting the fight early! haha
This is an incredibly useful feature every once in a while. Glad to have it! Sammy has had it for a bit on some of their phones, but its good to see this will be incorporated in all of Android.

This will be really nice, actually. Granted, if you download the Android APK (I think that's what it's called) and have your phone synced with it on your computer, you can take screenshots without rooting or anything. It's how I was able to send those pics of my 1918 benchmark I got on the X after Gingerbread. :)
But that process is just complicated enough to set up that I can see why you didn't include it. :)

It is like the screen shot on my iphone i jailbroke. Hit power and home. That method is by far the best. Shaking kind of changes the screen alot i noticed on scrolable pages with certian apps

The Epic Touch has this with Gingerbread. Just push the power and volume down buttons. :)

Boring... My EVO 3D has been doing it since the device launched. Power button + Home button for a screen shot capture.

i need to help u make a correction, I have the HTC Sensation 4G with T-mobile, i have native screenshots i can take within any app and outside of apps by simply holding the Power button and pressing the Home button. I actually just did it for my associate bc she didnt even know. so some android already has this functionality :)
