[Or alternatively, but less likely since it requires more work from Google: Should all Android devices have the option to allow landscape view on the home screen?]
It seems like a lot of the incompatibility of the 2.1 apps and problems with other options that Google has pushed to the Nexus One stems from the fact that the Droid is the only Android phone that can force landscape view on its home screens (please correct me if I'm wrong. I suppose the Devour will be the second?).
Would you prefer it if Google removed the option to force landscape on the home screens of Android phones by opening the keyboard if it meant that apps could be created quicker and with more compatible results?
