    Does anyone know if 2.1 will come via OTA or will we have to upgrade manually?

    I personally hate how the LED Notification light only blinks green. I know there are some apps that can change it to different colors based on what the notification is, but they don't encompass all notifications. Since it appears the the N1 has this feature in it's trackball does anyone know if that would be an N1 feature or an 2.1 feature. and when we inevitably get 2.1 will that feature transfer to our LED Indicator. I have seen it use at least 10 different colors so I know it's possible.

    Not sure Nexus One docks like a Droid

    Beyond the physical keyboard another difference may be the docking options for the Droid. I'm not sure on this someone else might clarify if the Nexus One matches the Droid on Nav.

    I like my Droid. A lot. And the keyboard isn't the icing for me. IMHO the icing is the Google Nav and docking. When I bought my Droid I wanted to be on Verizon and the Eris didn't have the functionality the Droid did.

    The Nexus One may have the faster processor which is attractive but I'm not hearing the media talking about its docking capability or Nav.

    Nav is big. I was just reading this morning about a Nav cradle for the IPOD touch. Hmm, sounds like someone trying to catch up. Cause Nav is big.

    I agree with what someone else said. 2.1 isn't the game changer. The game changed with Android. There will always be later phones just as there is with laptops, etc ..

    I'll stick with my Droid and be very happy for two years. Nice having new features roll out to you periodically.


    Peace,

    As well you should Crazy. I've owned Treo 700wx, HTC xv6800 and Touch Pro and this smartphone in my opinion sends them all home packing.......... and I think with every little upgrade this thing will get even better........... Having said that, I am looking forward to checking out 2.1 :)

    I had the vx6800! I used to watch movies on the bus ride home with it, and play duke nukem...lol

    It was a brick and the call quality was the worst I ever experienced! I seriously despise windows mobile.

    I have had the iPod Touch now for over a year and have longed for an iphone on verizon...when the droid came out I looked at it skeptically (coming from the pathetic LG Dare!) thinking it would be yet another disapointment.

    I'm happy to report I have not touched my iPod Touch (no pun there) since I activated my Droid. Best damn phone I've ever had.....miles ahead of the iPhone!

    The only thing I don't like is that I can't for the life of me find a good Solitaire game!! I paid $7 for the one I had on my iPod and got so many hours use out of it its ridiculous! But I guess the tradeoff is that for $9 I bought the nes, snes and genesis emulators and transfered all my roms (1.29GB worth) to my droid, now I have over 1,000 games on there. Not bad!

    I personally like it when i get a handcent notification, I have mine set to blink red, when its from a default application from the phone.. its red.....

    I would like to be able to assign every type of notification a color... that way I have a hint whats its about before I even touch my phone.

    Motorola Droid & Cliq Getting Android 2.1, Droid to Get Flash 10

    Got this from android central...



    Don't worry Droid & Cliq owners, you're not going to be left in the dark. Motorola also announced that they'll be bringing both the Motorola Droid & Motorola Cliq to Android 2.1. Which means we should be able to enjoy all the goodies that made the Nexus One so jaw-droppingly sexy on our Motorola Android phones. We're definitely interested in seeing Motoblur and Android 2.1 interact, but that's a discussion for another day.
    But the news doesn't stop there for Droid owners. Not only will they receive Android 2.1 but Motorola has been working on Flash 10.1 integration and has optimized it for the Droid chipset, which means yes, your Droid will soon have official Flash support. On top of that, the Droid should get a second maintenance update in the near future. Score big for Droid.
    Since yesterday wasn't such a good day to be a Droid owner, today is shaping up totally different! What do you guys think?
