    PDANet sets up your computer to pull the data connection from your phone via USB or Bluetooth and use it for internet connectivity.

    It requires software installed on your computer to allow the connection which is offered by PDANet.

    You could always use one of the "home replacement" apps in the market to get more screens, if you're not interested in rooting. I use GDE with 5 screens. It's great. Once the update comes, I might switch back, even though I like the "Hero" theme where the phone icon is always there.

    So, I just read all the posts in that german thread. The original poster said something to the effect that live wallpapers react with sound? Like notifications, music and stuff.

    This is correct there is a current build with them on. Will VZW allow them to remain is the question.

    Regardless your information is correct. There is a CURRENT build in testing with live walls and 5 screens.

    I am ok with 3 screens and no live wallpaper, but I would really like to have a camera that worked worth a damn.

    My blackberry did a better job than the DROID, and is the only thing I miss.

    I don't see any reason they would leave them off. If they have any intention on keeping motorola as a happy partner. The LG ENV Touch has them, the (rumored) VZW nexus one will likely have them. So I can't imagine it not getting them. What do you think?

    I was the biggest "what's the big freakin deal about live wallpapers" at first but now that I've witnessed them first hand on mine, I don't see how I thought that. Live wallpapers is going to reevolutionize wallpapers just like swype is going to do with touchscreen keyboards imo. The live wallpaper with the earth rotating is awesome to say the least. It has really good graphics and has many settings like different earth looks like a real time one where it'll show the shadow depending where you are and what time, the speed ratating, the moon, ect, ect.. my current one is the one with lil sperm flying around everywhere.

    I would think they are going to leave them on.

    Always in the back of my mind though is that we are dealing with VZW : )

    There are a couple bugs on the build so we will have to see how this all shakes out.
