Face lift for Android Market includes new graphics
The Android Market is undergoing some changes as we told you yesterday. Thanks to some information from a software developer, we now know that these changes include a face-lift in the graphical look of Android's application store. The developer's console, which is used by app writers to upload their work, now includes a few new options.

For example, a 512 x 512 high resolution app icon is now a choice for the code monkeys working on an app. "Featured graphics" at a Hi-Res 1024 x 500 is an option and there is space for a YouTube promotional video. All of these changes could be coming soon as Android 2.3 is only a few weeks away and the developer's console will be shut down on Thursday night. It all bodes well for a new look for the Android Market, certainly before the end of the year and perhaps much sooner than you would think.

Sweet, but i bet these changes wont be good for 2.2 devices. Which is what the majority of owners are going to be stuck with for a while. Hell my Vibrant still doesnt have 2.2 let alone a plan for a 2.3 update... Fast evolution sucks.
