The Samsung Galaxy S II is the hottest Android device on the blogs right now and getting a lot of attention because of the once again, huge carrier support it is going to get here in the US. We already know how big the device sold in the rest of the world taking it by storm. I have hammered the device specs already, 1.2GHz dual core, 4.3 Super AMOLED Plus screen, 8 megapixel camera, etc. But here is little more about what special things Samsung is doing with the UI using Motion Control.  Most if not all top end smartphone come with a gyroscope for game play, or flying one of those cool drone helicopters from your device. But what Samsung is trying to do is integrate more of the gyroscope ability into the UI to make everyday actions even easier. Take for example the moving of icons on your today screen. You have to grab and hold and move them off the edge of the screen which is a pin. Now you can grab and hold the icon, and then tilt your device to shift to another panel to drop the icon.  Simple, but still pretty cool. A second use of the gyroscope in the UI is in the photo gallery. Before where you would pinch to zoom, now all you have to to is two finger grab, and tilt your device to zoom in and out.

Check out the video below for some Motion Control UI integration on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II.
