Pinch and zoom seems to be a pretty hot topic lately, but I can say that I have not thought (or heard) about it coming available on the home screen. That said, a recently surfaced video is showing an HTC Hero running Android OS 2.1 with just that. Pinch and zoom on the home screen. And judging from the video, it looks pretty smooth, not to mention really slick. You can pinch and zoom which will allow you to see thumbnail versions of all of your home screens. In theory it sounds pretty nice, but personally I am not sure how often I would use that as opposed to just using a simple swipe to the left or right to show another screen. The overall video is 8:41, but I will give you a heads up that the good stuff starts at around the 6:50 mark. Just in case you are short of time.
