    I think it's just the boot animation from someone over on the hacks side.

    Since the 2.1 software IS out there, does anyone have a list of the features/updates?

    Hopefully we'll see a fully functional version soon.

    When do you think an official update would be released? I hope it would be Q1 or Q2 of next year.

    Guys...its not even released yet.

    Why would it be a surprise anyway? The OS has been out for a little over a month..of course they aren't going to mass-release OS updates every other week or the average customers would raise red flags as to why they are being forced to update so frequently.

    I am not a fan of saying "the Droid is a good phone because it has ______ sales. (fill in a number)"..because sheep like tendencies don't say anything, all it is brainwashing..... but the Droid is Android's top platform on the top network right now (sale wise). If a new Android OS is released, you can bet the phone will get it.

    Developer's want to profit...not program for a platform that has a slice of the sales and runs with bugs and glitches on every other version.

    im afraid google will use 2.1 to leverage the sales of their google phone and leave the rest of us lagging behind for a while

    Posting this in the general discussion area isn't a good idea since most people will think that it's something they can do.

    Any of this kind of work takes root capabilities and knowledge and posting this in the general discussion area will just confuse people that only know how to do basic things with their phones and raise more questions than give people answers.

    Droid is Google branded that would not make sense.

    and speaking of sense....

    _If_ they were to do that they would do that to the HTC devices not their own branded ones.

    Atomic... this is nothing like the storm days, we waited for leaked OS's because our devices ran like crap! My droid runs great.... sure it will be nice to get the update early when someone finishes it and post it up for all to download. But I am not in a rush for it. I am happier than two bull frogs in love :)

    Point well made dude...

    The only thing that scared me about this post is the boot time. I love having a phone that boots quicker than I can wash, compound and wax my car.
