    First one is pretty much self explanatory...it's your gallery. I wouldn't delete that if I were you...second one is pretty self explanatory too, it has to do with probably typing in latin language

    but neither was there previous to 2.1

    so now all of a sudden "gallery" is no longer native to the android os?

    On the Gallery it may be because it was created by Cool Iris.

    Actually Google is trying to split the apps out from the OS. That way they can be updated more frequently and with less intervention by the carriers and makers.
