    Question for you guys... i know we were all Droid newbies when 2.0.1 was pushed...but was there any talk (before it being pushed) and the new lockscreen? That was a graphical enhancement that (as far as i can remember) wasnt mentioned, we noticed it after the OTA upgrade.

    Who's to say that the new launcher (more of a graphical enhancement) except for the extra homescreens isn't in that same category? I still have slight hope that we'll get it... what is everyone elses thought?

    I'm pretty sure the news so far has explicitly said we aren't getting it.

    no idea. guess we'll have to wait and see until someone gets the first update and lets us know.

    I have 2.1 launcher and it runs pretty smooth, i think it's from the N1 though. you can get it from RinTinTigger's thread on APK files, check out the docking clock too!

    I feel the same way about this to an extent....cause when 2.0.1 was pushed, I wasn't a droidforum addict at the time!! So I hadn't even heard of the update til I received it myself...

    But according to that article someone posted, Engadget supposedly had a Droid with the official 2.1 update and it still had the standard app drawer they said....

    But I don't know til I get it I guess....just hope for the best...

    Ya, no super cool 3D app draw for DRODID owners -- unless you root and install some custom ROM of course.

    Some people are so quick to take what one random person on the internet says as the truth.

    Droid 2.1 will have all that the N1 has. What now? Two random people saying different things!

    Motorola posted on their facebook what the update will have. No app drawer and no live wallpapers are included, sorry boys. Look it up if you dont believe me.

    This is purely speculation on my part, but I'm wondering if the reason we aren't getting some of these graphical enhancements is because Google hasn't coded them to work in landscape mode yet. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there is no way to force landscape view on any of the Nexus One homescreens like you can with the Droid.
