    Would it be possible to make a hack so that text selection is like it is on the iPhone? By this I mean magnifying the text so that you can more precisely choose where the cursor is.

    i agree that this would be really useful... it's available stock on the droid x, not sure what it would take to get it on the D1

    I would love this, if available. Text selection is a bit of a pain.

    I didn't know it was in the new Blur. So I'm assuming it's also on the Droid 2 in that case? It seems like it shouldn't be too hard for an android dev to get a hack for it on the original. I might try to mess around with it and if I make any progress I'd post it. But I have zero android experience, just a few java classes so don't expect much from me. Does anyone know where I could find some Droid X/2 source code?

    not sure if it would be in the droid 2... i didnt notice it, but its very possible. i think its primarily in the dx because its touch screen only..
