The Droid Mini has an LCD display as well and it has active notifications.
I'm paraphrasing how I remember it working (from a video): It flashes/breathes a few times with the pretty active notification screen. Then it stops flashing the screen all together but flashes it's conventional LED as all phones do. Then if someone nudges the phone (like knock on I suppose) it starts flashing/breathing the screen again.
It seems pretty smart. Minimal battery drain because the screen is still rarely on and if the regular LED flashes it will help you from across the room or even close. Just nudge the phone to get the detailed view. It would seem to get the best of both worlds.
I assumed the Knock On feature meant that the G2 (s800) also had the low power motion/context core as well. That is great, hopefully things like this can be open up to more apps/developers. The X's camera on gesture is a great idea, and I believe it also has a sensor to turn on when you remove it from your pocket which is another great idea. It would be nice if users of all phones could get this in newer chipsets.
Someone on reddit also mentioned that the G2's GRAM was an s800 feature and not specific to the phone. No source was given, but that would be nice.
