So is this something that will be fixed in the OTA update?
this is something that should have worked out of the box, phones have been playing nice with gifs and animated gifs for years, but to answer your question i have no idea, it was supposed to have been fixed from the beginning of android.
This is so ridiculous my old Motorola razor had no problems playing animations or videos. So much for this to be a smart phone. I really hope that Motorola and Google monitor these forums and is able to satisfy hear the voices of their unhappy customers.
i am sure it is something that they are working on , especially since the droid has brought android alot more attention. remember the iphone just a year ago couldnt even do mms or copy and paste. lets just hope google is faster then the asshats at apple
