    Google "News and Weather" Widget Exclusive to 2.1?

    On the shots of the Droid ported with 2.1 there's a nice news and weather widget by google. I can't seem to find it on the marketplace. Is that exclusive to 2.1?

    I wouldn't be surprised if that is "baked" into 2.1 and part of the "Google experience" as they look to improve the "base" so it is considered equal to editions with Sense or Motoblur... thus they build it in rather than release it to the market where it is available to everyone.

    Appears to be a new native app for 2.1.

    Also both of the weather screen shots show the Weather Channel icon which hopefully means you can select your favorite weather provider instead of being stuck with just one. I really like the graph version of the forecast, nice!!

    I agree, I really hope they keep the new theme and it makes it to 2.1. The new native Power, Music and YouTube Widgets from 2.0.1 update seems to have been a preview of the new look for all the 2.1 native apps/widgets.. I SURE HOPE SO, me likey!!

    I also like what appears to be the new "Clock/Multimedia" Screen. Much improved over the current one, also appears to be able to work portrait and landscape.

    I agree, if they keep this new theme look, add these new app/widgets from the preview, AND add Music player controls and notifications to the lockscreen.... AND fix BT handsfree.. I will be 100% happy and could care less about any more updates... at least for now :-)

    Yeah, a guy can dream, right!!
