Many of the upgraded features include enhanced photo-sharing and media syncing and location based social interaction.

    Guess I'll be the first to ask. Will this apply to phones like the X, D2, etc.? Or does anyone really know right now?

    I'm fairly certain it will be on the x and 2 in fact I'm pretty sure its the same version of blur that was on the 3.0 leak for the Droid 2.

    I'm pretty sure It will. Like I said it looks on the surface like the3.0 leak but i dont know how much was there feature wise. Hookbil tried it out, he's been stock lately, and iirc he liked it but had some battery issue that may have been attributed to a widget.

    The best update they could do to blur is make it optional.

    I'm not a big blur fan. I think I might be going back to stock soon. I guess I will have to in order to get the blur update.

    I don't mind blur. I bought the devour when it came out. Of course I realized in 48 hours the verizon rep had salestalked me into a peice of **** and switched for the OG droid. I missed blur for a bit since facebook and txt were my primary addictions. I don't know if I could go back to blur, but it wouldn't bother me that much if my phone had it when I upgraded.

    I tried the Connected Music Player when it leaked and its basically just a ripoff of TuneWiki that isn't even as good. And still nothing compared to apps like PowerAmp.

    And I still don't know why the insist only having Dialer and Contacts shortcuts in the dock bar...come on they take you to the same place just a different tab.

    Blur is not bad if it is used at the minimum that is why I run Apex with a few things removed.

    Alot of people probably like Blur, I just wish we were given the option to uninstall it and run Android naked.

    I have the OD that's running Liquid Gingerbread very well. I haven't seen a phone yet that's compelling me to upgrade. Even to get the Thunderbolt I'd have to go back to 2.2 and who knows when I'd get an upgrade?
