    So it doesn't even have the 3D app thing instead of the pull up drawer????? What?? And no live wallpapers??? Not that I care that much for the wallpapers, but I thought it would be equal to the Nexus??

    I guess they know more people will buy the Nexus if they don't add those things to the droid, big bummer

    I guess we will have to deal with whatever they give us but, I deeply feel that this isn't fair....I will upgrade to 2.1 just to have the latest software.....but I will root and OC and do all that stuff as soon as it becomes available

    Rumours all.

    It will be what it is.

    However, if the launcher was not included now, I can see why. Just not coded yet to switch to landscape on the droid. The N1's launcher has no such reason to do so.

    Also, I have to raise my voice here:

    THERE WILL BE NO FLASH IN 2.1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Geez guys and gals, flash development at Adobe is a totally separate thing than the OS upgrade.

    2.1 is supposed to SUPPORT flash 10.1 but it is not PART of the OS.

    Enough about flash! It will be later! And it will be from Adobe, not moto or google ...

    Launcher 2 is SO annoying..I'm glad they decided to leave it out...I can't stand how it clicks..you can't just scroll thru like the tray.

    If you really want it it is available, as a part of the OS or deodexed installation....no need to cry..

    there is a huge thread about 2.1 on the news page its about 150 pages, don't worry about it at all is better not to know anything about it than to be another droid owner bleeding for 2.1, whenever you get your update on your phone Accept it, you will be happy with it :icon_ banana:

    Iphone?

    I really hate to say this, but this really IS why the Iphone has an advantage. The updates are global to the equipment, not who makes the phone. This is the same regret I had as a Blackberry user.

    Apple only charged 10 dollars to ipod owners. Iphone users get all updates for free. I have to agree with nevadascott its starting to get ridiculous. So now we miss a few things out of an os but what happens when 2.2 comes out or 3.o are we gonna get half that O.S. as well? Is there ever going to be two google phones with the same O.S. on it? I mean that's just ignorant. People with original iphones can do everything that a 3gs can do, provided its not a hardware issue, except send mms. I'm calling shenanigans, everyone grab there broomsticks
