Alternatives to 2.1 Features
Since it looks like we will have to wait a bit for 2.1, I would appreciate some ideas on market-available alternatives for some of the 2.1 features, specially:
For the purpose of this discussion I am not interested in rooting options.
- 5 or more home screens
- Better application drawer
- multiple gmails on one inbox
- voice controls/speach-to-text
I know, I know. I know this vzw guy.....
Yes, this is another well known "My friend who works at vzw told me", but for what it's worth, and Time WILL tell, "my friend who works at vzw" has leaked me "information" thru out the past 6-7 years with him being right 98-99% of the time. Much of this has been mentioned (above, etc.), but 2.1. which should be out anywhere from tomorrow to a week and a half, being a 2 part upgrade will include Speak to text AND e-mail, as partially mentioned above, Flash, 5 screens which include live wallpaper / background(s) and some other Sound / Dialing enhancements. Also, like the Nexus One, hopefully we also will be seeing Google Earth - http://www.androidguys.com/2010/02/2...oid-market-21/ -
Yes he's my friend, yes, he's been accurate most of the time, but he's human and I, like you guy's will believe it when I see it ! Friend or no friend...:icon_eek:
Can't escape it even at Midnight...

Grant it, it was a minor Smart**s remark, but was it necessary ? Just give it a thought as your diaper is being changed for beddy bye....:icon_ poke:
