    Thanks Mapexvenus, I was curious what the official changelog would state. I am hopeful we will see improved battery life as well but we'll all know soon enough.

    yeah I gotta say, thats a real dissapointment not getting 5 screens. I'm tired of having to use all these other home replacements that eventually slow down the phone. oh well, the voice to text should be interesting. But I think in order to use it, I bet we have to use the android keyboard, so no swype. Will see..

    Thanks for the info. Those are real release notes, so I think we can take them to the bank. That is what we are getting.

    The depressing part is that anyone running a modded rom already has ALL of those features, and if we do the official update we lose our root access (at least temporarily, until somebody cracks 2.1 too).

    Sucks that there is an official update coming that will actually REMOVE features from my phone

    Really? No 5 homescreens? I could deal with omission of live wallpapers, but it's inexcusable to not give us the 5 home screens that the REAL 2.1 update includes. I'm really starting to get angry here, and the way this is being handled is probably going to ensure that I buy an "official Google" Android headset for my next purchase.

    No 5 homescreens sucks. I got rid of Home++ because it was too laggy. Been playing with sweeterhomes but too many bugs. If i can just get 5 homescreens I'd be a happy camper. How all other android phones have at least 5 and the might Droid only have 3 is a huge oversight to begin with.

    I agree....I'm not very computer savy but how hard is it just to increase from 3 to 5....the market offers so many widgets and things to take up the home screens but they give us 3. I also dont know how all this update works but maybe google didn't give that option to motorola because thats something they want the nexus one to have exclusively

    Having 5 homescreens sucks without the card system.

    I think the widgets is what separates android phones from the iphones look. It's what provides a level of customization and individuality that the iphone can't do. I'm sure at some point that will change but for now, adding picture frames widgetsof my kids, weather widgets, the music player, etc makes my droid feel like it's my own.
