    2.1 hype?

    Hey guys. I just did the update to 2.1. I watched several youtube videos about it today, and got pretty excited. However....now that the update is done, I'm a little confused about what was supposed to be so good? The picture gallery is gorgeous for sure. But, I was expecting more than 3 home screens, as well as the 3D style app screen. And what about these live wallpapers? Sorry....I'm a self admitted newb. Just looking for some guidance. :-) Thanks guys.

    One more thing. I also saw some stuff about the weather/news app. Can't locate that either.

    Ok. Got the live wallpapers. VERY NICE! Weather/News.....not so much. Just need help with the multiple screens thing. Voice to text works so so too.

    Kind of a "forbidden fruit" thing. People heard it was coming and then got all excited when they right it would be here, then wasn't...

    Grass is always greener I guess.

    If you want more hone screens, I suggest helix launcher.

    I agree. The live wallpapers is great as is the gallery but that's pretty much it. Maybe there are some underlying fixes they didn't publish but it's pretty much a nice update but definitely not knock your socks off.

    What I don't get is while the international droid got more screens and we are stuck with 3. I would gladly give up live wallpapers to get more real estate.

    Johhny isn't helix having issues on 2.1? Bring me up to speed. I thought there were a lot of FC issues.

    How many FCs have you had with Helix and how noticeable is the lag. I installed it, opened the app drawer and it took much longer for the apps to appear. Uninstalled it right away. Open Home and Home++ were so annoying I have kept my distance from home replacements.

    I hope they fixed the issue with the sensors due to long sideburns during a call causing you to hangup, punch buttons, turn on apps, etc.
