ROU Launcher could be the next greatest Android launcher. It's currently still in development stages but what they show on the video above looks pretty impressive!

Team ROU is in the process of adding/recruiting some devs to help out in it's development, so if you are interested in helping on this project, be sure to check them out on twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/teamrou).

So what do you guys think?

Is it just a launcher or a full OS? The eye-candy makes it appealing. I might have to give that a shot once it comes out.

I wanna give it a go! Wonder how far out it is until a release :excited:

The bigger question is: Will it get ported to the DX?

I assumed it was just a launcher, but if it is a ROM then that is a fine question

Here's their thread over at XDA

teamROU and ROU Launcher (ROU UI) - now with video, pg6! - xda-developers (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1268704)

Yeah. It says launcher at the top of the video box, but inside the video at the start, it's saying ROUUI.

OK, so it's...both? Interesting.

lol, perhaps similar to how MIUI has it's own launcher, but maybe they'll make a ROM with it included and have it available to download on the market if you just want the launcher?

Didn't know MIUI had a separate launcher. Based on what I'm seeing, though, the ROM looks fun.

Oh yeah, MIUI's launcher is more similar to the iOS launcher than an android launcher.

Looks a bit too "bubbly" for my tastes.

It is gonna need some theme options to get rid of the bubblegum look. Nice concept though and I am following it closely.
