Made an example animated gif to show how it looks like:

Would 5 circles be better? Just my option.

Yeah, more circular shape would look nicer IMHO.

i would love that on n900 , maybe a patched hildon with that interface(i've tried all nemo versions on n900 , they're too slow to be usable even emmc with sd swap) ,willing to pay for it if someone makes that posible

If you don't want a shape spinner (circular, square etc.), you can use shape morpher. I.e. design one shape to be beginning, and other shape to be the end, and the progress/activity can be be displayed as morphing. I didn't see such activity indicators used often.

Another idea is to use a 3D style indicator, but that should fit with 2D design well.

I like how WolframAlpha for example uses a miniature game of life as an activity indicator.

Let me get this out of the way. This is nice. There's nothing reaching too far here. But, it plays with the methods and behaviors many already know, and refines a good bit of what needed to be touched. Impressive, and one can see the work in some of the details.

That said, I don't know if its more of a step back than a half step forward.

I saw/see the N9 as a step towards using the actvity stream as the center of the interaction. Fastlane seems like a step forward in that wise. If this were a full step forward, its leaving the icon-first though, and using the activity stream, gesture-led initiation, and then search/multi-task as that layering-speak UI.... ahhhhh... smiling, excited.

Gosh, I've got to break out my design chops and do something alongside Glacier UI. Seriously, good stuff here. I just see a bit more.

If my attention span can maintain it a bit... I'll go in on this.
