Yea I think that was two different things...
As far as the four corners concept...its an idea we plan on using in the official skins but since open mobile is completely modular (aka the only panel built in is the about screen) its up to the skinner how they want to do things.
The idea of zones probably wont be implemented as much as an infinite number of displays. Each display is unique from the rest but since they are all tied together they share alot. A backseat user could start a movie and then a passenger that enjoys it could watch the same movie starting from the beginning...or jump to the position they're at. Mirroring and such could be implemented in the future but for now isn't planned due to the very hardware specific programming it would require.
Yeah, i know i am probably just dreaming at this point. But it is something i want to do in the future. Eh...a man can dream...

UGenius's green skin concept also looks nice, and looking forward to it as well!
As mentioned in other thread, text animation similar to the Adobe After Effects shown here http://www.adobe.com/products/aftere...gallery/7.html would be a nice feature. (If possible)
any animation would make me switch.. I been skinning several things to acheive a visual effect thats creates a animation but its long and tedious.. I @ this point have halted and am gonna await some development from this FE..
Its a little outdated but theres a skin designer available for you to play around with if you wanted to start putting together skins:

A little sample of the Animated Label control (new for version 0.5):
I'm starting with the easier effects and working my way up - but figured I would give a sample of the first 2 (which is actually 5 but 2 of them are rendered the same the motion is just different and the others are scrolling text). I tried to get video but the compression made it look awful.
Im working my way up to that bubble pulse effect - well see how it turns out and if I can maintain that <1% CPU use :)
your on to something real nice. Keep up the great work!
anyone out there a google developer? i understand that the software is still in the early stages, too early to start talking about off the wall plugins, but I would love to see a plugin for the Google Voice service. I would love to have in integrated into OpenMobile, to be able to see my call history, to place and return calls all from the interface. i will go into more detail if anyone is interested in it.
