Got the 2.1 update on my Moto Droid on Saturday the 3rd. While is has LWP, 3d gallery, etc. it is missing some stuff. I referenced Google's Android 2.1: How It'll Change Your Phone - PCWorld for what it was supposed to contain. I can't seem to find any of the new black system widgets, though I have the google widget, and the app launcher looks just the same.
I installed the Helix launcher today to get more home screens and the double tap feature.
I know that article was published in January, but did they really change their minds that much?
